These are some of my favorite fabrics I found at the local thrift store. They are being used in various quilt blocks. The top floral is my absolute favorite, I am crazy about that fabric. I have about 1/2 yard of it altogether.
Just a little something I got sidetracked into. But these tiny projects give a great sense of having accomplished something. Have made several other fabric postcards in the past week. I used very stiff artist canvas as the middle instead of cardstock. The background was left over from some quilt I made a while back, then I put the little houses on top of that.
This is a string quilt I made a while back that I am very pleased with. I heavily starched some fabric and laid the strips across my 12 inch square up ruler until they covered it, then sewed them together. There was no foundation used. When I got a bunch made, I put them together with some large squares and cut them into large half square triangles. Wound up with twice as many blocks to use!
Have done many types of needlework and sewing since the 1960's, including handspinning.
I am devoted to prayer and the study of Scripture and am also a grandmother. My husband and I are both ministering in our local area, and I also have an active internet ministry.
I really enjoy the creative process involved in designing blogs and websites, and of course needlework patterns.
