For the Sewing Room


Thanks to Carla of Creatin' in the Sticks who did
 an absolutely amazing job as cheerleader
and to Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt 
for all of her hard work as the head cheerleader.

I don't have a "Sewing Room."  I would
say it is more of a sewing wall. 
I don't have very much room to keep a lot
of extra things in this area, but
the kids do join me quite often at my space.
They do some ironing or visit so
I made them a quilt to sit
on the bench and warm up if need be
while they visit.


 

 
 
I decided to practice my Ruffles
since we have a little
Ruffle hop coming up.
I heard someone say that
everything looks better with a Ruffle. 
 Hmmm... I wonder who that was?
 
 

 
 Let's
just say after all the practice I had on this
I should be good to go.  Right?
 
 
I did a little thread painting on the center
corset.  I have never been more nervous doing
it on a project before.  If I messed it up it would
have been a little disastrous.
 I also used Aurifil 12wt. #1147 in that coordinating
color in my sewing machine again for the thread
coming out of the giant needle.
 I love how it turns out and will continue to
play with it a lot more.

  3. Oh, Amy, I just love it. The big corset in the middle is lovely. I've had corsets in my head and that is just what I wish I would have created and then you added that big ole needle... So creative and whimsical. Love all the details and ruffles. There is nothing I don't love.
    Thanks for hopping. Great quilt!

  10. Amy, waouh, it really look gorgeous with ruffles, you already tried (and I never, but I will, promised :-)). Your thread painting is superbe, why so nervous? I like it very much, you did a wonderful job!
    And why is it snowing in your header? We here (Switzerland) are WAITING for snow, my kiddies are asking me if summer is coming, we had NOT a single day of snow at our place.....

  27. Gracious, Amy, that's a fabulous quilt. I do have a question...The center corset isn't part of the fabric line, right? I'm assuming that you designed and made it from scratch and then did thread painting to enhance it. It really is a work of art! The added ruffle does support someone's addage that "everything looks better with a Ruffle"!!!!

  28. Amy, I want to come over and cover up with that B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L quilt ! Your thread painting and embellishing is just perfect. You are a star...that's what you ARE !
