let's quilt!

quilting

Just a little update on my last post.
As you can see I'm busy quilting. I like quilting by hand, using a hoop. With a hoop I find it easier to rotate and handle the quilt. Another reason is; my stitches become more even. I quilt a heart pattern in each triangle, I like to keep it simple. Hopefully I can show you a finished result next time I post!

moo cards

This is what I came home to on friday! My Moo cards... they were waiting for me on the doormat. So cute...don't you just love them!

new fabrics For I forget.... I have two more new fabrics added to my Kaffe Fassett collection. I particularly like the purple border fabric!
I hope to make a quilt out of my "Fassett's" some time! That's after I've find a nice pattern and my collection is grow out of its box!

You are already on the quilting, how fast you work! What are those moo cards?

Jeanne said...

I'd also like to know about the moo cards. Quilting hearts in the scrappy quilt will look great! Do you find it difficult hand quilting through the three layers of fabrics? (Strips, foundation and backing)

Oh what great new goodies and a lovely quilt to work on. I can't wait to see the quilting! (and what you decide to do with the Kaffe Fassetts!)

Me too, what are moo cards? I love to hand quilt using a hoop also for the same reasons you mention. Love your quilt .... nice and bright!

I love your Moo cards. How are you going to use them? I'd love to order some... but, I'm not certain how I'd use them. I've seen some people use then for advertising and like a business card. But, I don't sell anything. Any ideas?

I am an handquilting addict too and i prefer an hoop because I can't stitch with my thumb. The colors of your top are fantastic.

Felicia said...

Yay moos! I loved mine and gave them all away and have reordered. They're so much fun.

your moo cards look great. I've been hoping to get some done soon, but as usual am always so slow with things.
Your quilt fabrics are so delicious, and your quilting looks wonderful.
