I have not done much sewing lately except for my apt. I made new Valan
ces for the kitchen and dinning room and my other valances for the 2 bedroo
ms and living room was able to use the old ones and didn't even have to alt
er them. I also made place mats and napkins to match. I don't like curtains
covering all my windows so just have vertical blinds and valances.
Yesterday I cut out material for two crib quilts. First one has differ
ent colored tractors on a white background, so I added 3 different solid co
lors to match tractors and these are just 5 1/2 in squares filler blocks. T
he second crib quilt is pink half squares using the churn dash pattern. www
.quilterscasche.com has more than one size if you want to try this quilt. T
hink this will be cute, especially since I am using white 2 inch sashing an
d dark pink 2 inch corner squares at corners of sashing blocks. I hope to g
et started on these two quilts sometime next week.
All most forgot, I have also made a variety of cat/dog place mats for
water bowls/food. These are all made with cat and dog prints of fabric. I s
till have some pot holders to make from left over material from other proje
cts. The crib quilts, cat/dog mats and pot holders all go to the Senior cra
ft show in November. I try to donate something to help seniors out. Most
of these were done just before my move, while packing boxes.
