Here in the States
July is associated with
red, white and blue.
There was no other choice for my small quilt
19" x 25"
Earlier this year I purchased the
mini quilt .postcard collection
from Temecula Quilt Co.
I don't think it's available still, but
I did see they have a new book,
It looks quite fun.
I added an outside border to
the original pattern and tweaked
the size just a bit.
Nothing like simple machine quilting and
then maybe a turn of the century print on the back.
Yes, we were around then!
There's still time to join in with Wendy,
If I've missed someone else,
please let me know.
There's no rules. No pressure.
Yesterday was World Embroidery Day.
A good reason to stop doing chores
and get out a needle and thread.
A couple sewing sisters came over to celebrate
and we started a new project.
This is the beginning of mine.
The wool for the hearts came out of the
neglected wool stash.
The lovely orange sherbet background
was a wool blanket that had seen better days.
I pulled out all of the the beautiful threads
that I've collected with other Sue Spargo projects
and started stitching.
There's no time restrictions on this.
Just slow and sweet.
Until Next Time-
