 Starting The Finish Work On a Garden Quilt
   Well I'm finally going to be able to start back to work on a quilt I stated a few months ago.
   Yesterday I was able to get the center of the quilt drawn. It took me a couple of hours to get it drawn and photographed.
    I was able to get the sections of the garden drawn in that I felt were the highlights of the garden.
I didn't want this quilt to be to complicated but from the way the drawing turned out I don't think it will be as simple as I had envisioned.
   
   The next thing I need to do is to draw a black line drawing on top of the plastic that I have over the surface of the quilt. This is what I use to help me place the small pieces of fabric as I cut them.
   I will be using cotton fabric and probably some sheer fabric for the flowers of the Iris plants.

    I also wanted to do a small quilt for my son's upcoming birthday which is in February.
 Since he likes lighthouses that will be the theme of the quilt. He also likes blacks , white and grays. So I will use those colors in the quilt. I've done a black and white drawing for the lighthouse quilt but have not had a chance to pick out the fabric for the quilt.
  I will post pictures later next week of the lighthouse quilt.

  
 I will have to cut off about 1/4th inch of the edge of the drawing in the center so it will fit in the middle better.



I will also have to do my black line drawing on the plastic I have covering the quilt.

Happy Holidays
 It has been a roller coaster year for me. I haven't posted because one of my friends fractured their  leg and had to go to the hospital. Their out now .
   I will post later today to upload all the pics of the Christmas items I made.
I have decided to focus my energy on landscape quilts this upcoming year.
I enjoy making all the different crafts I make but landscapes are my true love.
    Hope the new year is going to be wonderful for all of you who follow my blog.

Ps Still haven't had time to post. Holidays as you know are so hectic.
   HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
 Hope you have a wonderful time.

New Items for Christmas
  I've been working on a  couple of types of wall hangings for Christmas. they are not large. there made from cotton  scraps .  This next few days I have decide to get as many Christmas items made as I can to sale in one of the local shops in my town.
     Here are a few pics of some of the items I have finished.

 The first item is my interpretation of a poinsettia. All the elements are scrapes I had on hand. I added some glass beads to the center. Think I'll make three bags. These could be done in autumn colors or spring time colors.

  The next pics are of a Santa and a Angel.
