Here is an update on what's been happening around here lately--
I have been spending a bit of my time in my sewing room developing ideas for new patterns and projects that make use of the 2012 Quilt MN fabrics. We have bolts of the fabric at the shop which can't be sold until August 3, but I am using them now to come up with some good ideas for our customers. Here's a sneak peak at some of it:
|4 large printed panels will have 4 border choices|
|the 'words' fabric makes a great decorative border|
But I gave it a shot, and looked how nice they look all stitched up! The only change I had to make was in the little boy dog's collar, which was drawn as a bowtie to complement the little girl's collar of beads. The bowtie came out looking pretty much like the beads, so I converted it to just a straight collar. Much more manly. Looks like puppy love to me!
But the sewing and quilting comes to a halt when it's time for family--
He also visited several of the other side of the family when we attended a wedding party for nephew Andy and his bride, Kira. It was a fun event held out on the farm where Bob grew up, and 5 of his siblings were there, too. Many thanks to Larry and Denise for putting it all together!
