I'm Working On My Second Quilt

I'm Working On My Second Quilt

This is my second quilt it's for another little girl.  
I won't be sending out any quilts
 until I get two more quilts completed.  The next two are for boys.
I will be adding to this post when I've completed a  matching 
plush pillow or toy.

This is a product of "Grandma's Blankets" a ministry of the

Amazing Grace Baptist Church.  

Owl Pillow And Matching Blanket/Fleece Quilt - Grandma's Blankets


 It has two pockets for little presents inside:


I still have to do touch ups on the owl pillow and finish the edging,
 I'm waiting on the yarnto arrive in the mail.

This ministry is based off of a poem I wrote called Grandma's Blankets.
In the poem there's one child that needs a blanket and does't have one.

I Made A Skirt For My Daughter

I Made A Skirt For My Daughter

The skirt is folded in half in this picture.  I completed the skirt this afternoon,
though I started it quite a while ago.
 I embroidered the butterfly appliques and completed the lace at the bottom. 
This is the finished product.

Simple Harvest Pillow Craft

I made this pillow today.  It is very simple to make.

Here's what you need to make it.

 1. 2 1/2 yards of 21/2 wide fall ribbon
2. 1 1/2 yards of heavy jute (twine)
3. 2 already quilted harvest fabric rectangles 13X18
4. A rectangle pillow form slightly smaller.
5. Thread, Needle, Sewing Machine.
Hot glue, scissors 

Sew together your quilted harvest fabric with faces together.
Around 1/4 - 3/8 inch

Sew all the way around except for the one end, sew that end half way -
trim  the corners.

Pull inside right.  Make sure the corners are pushed out.

Stuff your pillow form into your quilted case.
Squeeze the pillow form and push around until you get it inside.
Make sure the corners meet the corners and the sides meet the sides.

Tuck your open end inside slightly about 1/4 inch as you sew it shut with 
a needle and thread.

Tie the ribbon around your pillow and use three layers of jute to tie
a bow and glue it on at the ribbon knot.  Cut any loose strings.

That's it your pillow is ready to display.

Joann Fabrics has their fall fabrics on sale right now.
