My First Quilt Label !!!

So for the 5-6 quilts that I've made (not including rag quilts), I have NEVER made a label ... shame on me!!! So here is my first label for a t-shirt quilt I made back in 2009. Now that I know how and it's really so easy and they come out so cute, I will be sure to make a label for every quilt that I make. I also plan to go back and make a label for the quilts I have already completed.

Bear Wall Hanging - progress !!!

So I continue to work on the Bear Wall Hanging (really Eleana it will eventually be finished!!!) ... so here is the back where you can see that I have sewn around each of the nine (9) bears ... next I'll add the trees!!!

Surf Board Pillow

So ... I bought this pillow kit a few weeks back because it fit in with my "idea" for my California block ... anyway ... decided to make it and give it to my brother, Doug, and his wife, Sandy, because they have lots of pictures of surfboards on the beach at their house. I think it came out pretty nice and it was fairly easy !!!

Friendship Swap! "California"

Here is my sample of my block swap "Big Bear"!

I think it might look better in person.. And not sure about his eye just yet, trees might change too :)

Now for the WORK 11 more to go.. The letters are a lot of work to go around in the blanket stitch even though I'm doing it by machine. I will cut out each tree, bear and the letters little by little i can have this done by December..... I usually crank it out in the summer while i'm off. Go Ellie GO!!
