Recent projects...




A few of the projects lately...I'm mostly sewing curtains for the Green Lake Town Square Ballroom- panels of crinkled poly- very full of static electricity- may hair may be curly by the time I am done- haha! It's boring sewing but  I am glad to do this for this great community place.

I'm ready to get back to fun sewing!!!

So, I have joined a group on Flickr- the Gypsy Wife Quilt- A -Long. Here is the link to the pattern:
http://jenkingwelldesigns.blogspot.com/. I thought this would be a fun project that would help use up the large amount of scraps I have. I just started with whatever tickled my fancy! I guess I am into the happy, bright fabrics now- maybe the time of the year has something to do with this?
Anyway- I am all caught up and it was fun making these blocks! This will be one bright, happy quilt when it is finished.

A blast from the past! Had these blocks and some scraps in a bag. The center of the blocks are red-work chickens...I went through a major "chicken-phase" when we lived on our farm from 1991-1998 and maybe a bit beyond that, too. Anyway, we live on a lake now and the chickens just don't fit it, but I feel the need to finish this! Used some of the scraps to finish around the center block, got them all put together and now need to add some borders. I have NO idea what I will do with it once it is finished- maybe I could do an on-line "auction"? The piecing around the chickens is paper-pieced. The Pattern is "Redwork Chickens" by DuAnn's Designs, Eagle ID (copyright 1999) I made this smaller than the original- it has 12 blocks- I only did 5.
