Quilts by Cheri

 
 On Mondays Cheri Payne is offering a quilt a long for Halloween.  It can be found on Quilts by Cheri Friendship Group. HERE

I am a we bit behind but catching up fast.

This is block one......  I need to embroider the face and add button eyes.



Still stitching block two.......
 I forgot the star in the center of the bowl so that has to be added......
I also think the berries are the wrong color and I plan to change them to something else...

Block three was posted last Monday and this Monday will be block four.  I should be able to finish two blocks in one week if all goes well......

Cheri has many free quilt patterns on her Friendship Facebook Page under files on the left side...  If you like primitive she the best........

The Joy of a Finish


Clearing a bit from the studio I chose to bind three quilts that were ready to be finished.

The Rainbow Quilt is now on the way to Georgia to live with my granddaughter.



This quilt is mine.......  I made one for myself but Kim liked it so much that I gave it to her.....

Still kept looking at that pattern and knew that another one was going to be made.....

Here it is all bound and ready to sleep under........  I plan to KEEP this one........

This quilt was made at least 10 years ago.......  At long last it is no longer a flimsy.  I had quilted the center but for some unknown reason I never quilted the border...........  Now the quilting has been finished and it is bound..........  I cannot give this one away because the quilting is so bad...   After all it was made just for practice.............



Picked up the baby sweater in the evenings and knit a few rows........  Kate needed a shower gift so I finished it and it is on the way to her now...



Added a couple of bibs to go with the sweater.....


Found fabric that was purchased for a few new outfits for Wade.........  Cut them out and got them ready to sew..........  Out of D-rings for the harness so they will be on hold till I get to Greenville again...
