Crazy Quilt Putting It All Together

I was asked how I put my crazy quilts together so that the seams would lay flat......so I thought I would post that here as well just in case someone else wanted to know........it really is simple and the pic shows my seams in progress.....
I just use a large enough herringbone stitch to reach top/bottom and go all the way across the seams.....when finished I go to the next set of seams and do the same stitch all the way across.....when all seams are stitched down I take an iron and lightly press.....be sure to put a fluffy towel underneath the crazy quilt so you do not flatten out the flowers and such......also be sure and press then lift.....do not slide the iron back and forth......you will distort the front if you are not very careful.....This has always worked for me and I like how all the seams are open and lay flat for me....

Until Next Time,
Wendy

Mug Rug

This is a mug rug that I had made last month and just have not blogged about it....below are the stages of progress and the finished product....this is the start of the mug rug.....getting the base ready with the circles cut......on this rug the circles are not all the same size....

Next is the mug rug all quilted........both front and back......looking good if I do say so myself.....


Finally the finished product with binding in place......I really enjoyed making this mug rug and will be making more soon......

I am so glad that I finally got to post this......I have been trying for two days now......I usually use foxfire and I changed to IE and it let me post the pics.....go figure.......anyhow stay tuned for more mug rugs in the future.....

Happy Stitching,
Wendy

New Mini Crazy Quilt

I am in a new RR over at CQI and the theme is Gypsy Treasures.......this is the block that I have sent out to be worked on.....
 This RR has inspired me to make a mini crazy quilt with this theme also.....below is a pic of the quilt before I begin work on it......I will work on this over the next few months as this rr is going on and hopefully it will be finished at the end.....this quilt will be framed to hang......this little quilt measures 24x24 inches and will be bound before framing with a 2inch sashing......
The center patch is just beautiful and will be where I draw my inspiration from....what do you think......
 I think she is absolutely gorgeous and will give me great inspiration while I work......my first block in the rr has arrived and I am working on it.......I will be posting pics soon of what I have added to the block.....


Until Next Time,
Wendy

Sewn Spaces Swap

I was in a swap called Sewn Spaces Swap......we were to make a sewing machine cover according to our partners machine specs.......this is the cover I made for my partner.....as this was a secret swap I cannot say who my partner was until she receives her package....
 Here is the whole package that I sent out to her.....a pin cushion and some fabric.......I used my prisma pencils to color in random scissors over the fabric.....hope my partner likes it.....
 Until Next Time,
Wendy

Vintage Brooch Swap/New Family Member

My partner in the Vintage Brooch Swap was Michelle and this is what she sent me.....these are such wonderful brooches and look how she sent them in a pouch made from vintage stitchery.....
 This is what I sent out to her.....hope she likes what I chose for her.....
 We have a new family member living with us......he is so cute and his name is Whizzer.......he has the sweetest disposition and loves to cuddle.........
 Once again I am in love with puppy goodness! Riddick and Ruby seem to like him as well.....Riddick more than Ruby, but that is because she is old and crotchety!
Until Next Time,
Wendy
