Sewing friends are just the best! On this week of Thanksgiving, I want to say thanks to my sewing friends. Those friends are ones in my local quilt club and those in the online sewing community. Some of you from the online sewing community I have had the wonderful pleasure to meet while others are emails, comments on blogs or Instagram. Also, I am thankful for sewing friends who are so giving of their knowledge, advice and time. I have had the pleasure to get packages with fabric from a friend, buttons from another one and cording for a jacket from another online friend (to name a few).
Here is the first one using jelly roll strips
(2-1/2" wide). I love the bright colors and it is quick to make. Meredith had some of the strips together, so it didn't take much time to make.
I picked the Baptist Fan pattern for the quilting, a nice design that doesn't take away from the fabric.
This one is a bit different for a baby quilt but the light greens, burgundy and yellows are so pretty together. Meredith had many blocks completed and I just had to complete a few blocks.
Another photo of the quilt draped over the baby bed, these shorter days are hard for picture taking.
This one is quilted with a small floral design.
Thanks to my very good friend, Meredith, I added two more baby quilts for gifts. I am thankful for her friendship and her great quilt store. There are many things I love about her store and I am so happy to have a shop in my town to purchase fabric, thread and sewing notions.
Another online sewing community blogger/store would like to share this
History of the Sewing Machine
Head over to her site to check out this information. Thanks for sharing.
In closing, thank you sewing friends for so much. It is an amazing community we have and I know my sewing has improved greatly because of this great sewing community.
