sleepy whale baby quilt

Din pacate in Romania nu e asa usor sa gasesti materiale pentru patchwork la preturi rezonabile si de aceea ma axez uneori pe aplicatii,poate si pentru ca imi permite sa creez propriul design.Pentru ca imi place sa lucrez quilturi pentru copii,una din ultimele mele lucrari este cu o balena somnoroasa pe valuri.De obicei nu pun intaritura pe piesele mici aplicate pentru ca un quilt rigid nu e potrivit pentru copii.Prind piesele cu ace si folosesc cusaturile decorative pe care le am pe masina de cusut.Pentru mine functioneaza mai bine asa.
Daca imi lipseste ceva din USA sigur sint magazinele cu materiale pentru cusut in care puteam sa stau ore in sir fara sa ma plictisesc.Jo-Ann please ,open a store in Romania .If is possible in my town,Baia sprie.I dream about that.

i like to make quiet books

I remember when my girl was baby ,many years before ,toys was very different.I enjoy to make quiet books and i imagine the smile on a baby'face ,how they are busy to discover every little game in the book.

When i work something for baby's i try to listen relaxing music because i want to to put good thoughts in every detail.That's for today,tomorrow i have a new project.

working in progress and the finished pillow sham

The modern quilt's are very close to my soul,so i try to do something different then i have done before.I refurnish my living room and because my sofa will by dark gray i feel like a red spot will be what my room need.Let's work.I choose the fabric and i enjoy to play with the design.I use light gray fabric for the background ,solid red and printed gray printed black fabric for the design.I use fusible web to.According to my inspiration i cut the fabric and i use the free motion foot to attach.At the end i use satin stitch to cover the row edges.

At the end look's like this.
Free motion quilting to developing the modern design,gray binding and my 17"pillow sham is ready.Quilting is fun and some music help to feel better all the time.
