So colorful and lots of spools of thread...................

Hi everyone,

This morning I wanted to share a wall hanging that I made with a charm pack I purchased.  This charm pack had a variety of colors and when you look at a sewing room you see this in your thread collection. With this in mind I decided to make a wall hanging with spools of thread. The outside is material that is just fun with sewing notions and has all the colors that I choose to use in the spools.  This was a fast and very easy quilt to make.

So get out your sewing machine and try it!  Have fun choosing your colors.

Until next time,
Keep Stitchin,

Beautiful Butterflies and Dragonflies......................

This has to be one of my favorite quilts that I've made.  The center is a panel that I purchased.  Then for several months I would purchase fabric that would go with the panel till I thought I had enough.  This happens when you don't have a particular pattern to follow but anyone can do it.  I had seen this quilt made up in a quilt store but figured I could figure it out without a pattern.

It was mainly using 2 1/2" strips which was easy to cut.  Then a solid piece for the appliqued butterflies and dragonflies.  These appliqued pieces were done with the blanket stitch on my sewing machine.  They were cut out of another piece of material that had the same butterflies and dragonflies but in a small version.

This was a fun quilt to sew and I love the bright colors.  Sure reminds you of summer.

So pick a panel and design your own quilt.  Try it its not as hard as it might looks.

Till next time,
Keep Stitchin'
