Stitchin' and Finishin'

 
I have been working
right along on my
 
Here we have Block #8
 
 
Block # 9
 

Block#10
 

 
 and Blocks #1-11




I am not so sure about the last one, but
I am committing to it.
It went a little to the dark side. 
 
 
I also had a
quilt finish.  Yeah!!
 


My Iris Snowballs are
all finished up.
 


I didn't do anything
fancy with the quilting
because it
went to my nephew for his graduation present.
He loves the color purple,
and I thought with the black and grey,
it could definitely pass as
a quilt for a fella.
He loved it.
 

 
I will be using this Accuquilt
Die again in the foreseeable future.
It is so much easier and accurate than cutting them
by hand.

Wanted: Pattern Testers

Happy Friday everyone! 
Not much sewing has been going on in my world this week. 
I have been busy shoveling dirt. (Yes, you read correct)
 Great news for my yard just
not too exciting for the sewing room, BUT
I did finish writing up my very first quilt pattern. 




If any of you are interested in pattern testing,
 I would LOVE to hear from you! 
You use fabrics from your stash and
I'll provide the pattern.  :) 
Leave me a comment or email me at
sewincrediblycrazy {at} rocketmail {dot} com
 if you are interested. 
 
The finished size is 55" square.
 I believe that any level of quilter could manage it.

A Perfect Picnic

 So, Are you ready to
join me on a Picnic?
http://www.sewwequilt.com/

Thanks to our super sponsor Riley Blake Designs
and Peterboro Baskets

I received this lovely little
package weeks ago
filled with
3 yards of laminated cotton.
It was....
https://www.rileyblakedesigns.com/shop/category/riley-blake-designs/laminate/available-now-2/


Riley Blake's Red Medium Dot laminate.
I have been in a polka dot phase.
Just love them,
Well, since one of our lovely
sponsors is Riley Blake.
I decided to use nothing but
their fabric when creating my Picnic quilt.


I have spent weeks preparing
for the perfect picnic.
Embroidering cute little napkins
with Aunt Martha's Proud to be an American transfer
and with a ruffle of course






And what would a picnic be
without a quilt 


Sewing with the laminated cotton,
was a breeze and damp grass
won't ever be a problem when this is thrown on it. 
So, what did we do for our picnic.....
I decided to let my kiddos
give me the plan,
and it was pie and iced
tea in the backyard with
their best friends.
The weather here has been a
little iffy.  It is so hard to plan
anything because of all the flash floods
we have been experiencing.



A slice of homemade Strawberry Rhubarb pie,
(my grandmother's recipe)
the sweet smells of first days of summer break,
sticky fingers and bare feet

It never matters where you have
your picnic, but the memories
you make doing it.






You can find the pattern
to this quilt at
my Craftsy Shop.

Go and check out the rest
of these picnic parties
