How NOT to make a "Trip Around the World" Quilt!!


my FIRST quilt
 
Found this old picture of my first quilt...I sure learned how NOT to make a quilt with this one !  I LOVE Amish quilts and have many books on the Amish. So I thought I could just look at the picture and make this quilt. I cut each little block individually , and then laid them on the floor and tried to figure out how to sew them in order... much later I finally discovered Eleanor Burns strip piecing way to do this!
 
 


Make a "Family Letter" Quilt

Saw this idea on the internet (if anyone knows who made this one, let me know so I can give them credit)...A family letter quilt!  I have journals that my Grandmother wrote, and also really old family pictures (tin type).

I am going to scan them into my computer and then transfer them onto fabric (you can buy at sewing stores) to make one of these great quilts! So personal :)

Breast Cancer Awareness BRA on a VW !

"Think Pink"
I know this isn't a quilt project, but wanted to show you a sewing project I recently completed for Jeff Fisher Insurance. Isn't it the  cutest thing ever? I just made the bra for the car (it already had the boobs) :)

Great FREE program to make your photos interesting!

Amish buggies
I LOVE "Pic Monkey" for making my ordinary pictures interesting! It's FREE (but you can upgrade for a small monthly fee).
This is a picture of some Amish buggies I took recently in Lancaster. I added a filter called "blackboard" (I think) to it to make it very cool...then just save it as a JPEG...easy!
