I downloaded Pat Sloan’s One Ringy Dingy pattern as soon as I saw it back in 2017. I love the nostalgia of it, and I knew I had to have it.
Why did it take me so long to make it?
I don’t know.
But now it is finished and on display.
I love it!
Quilt on! Don’t wait for someday…what if it never comes?
Slow and steady wins the race. I can take Sitting Pretty off of my UFO list. Hooray!
Sweetness isn’t normally something I would want to make, so it must be the floral theme of the design that attracted me to it.
In any case, I enjoyed working the hand embroidery, and the wall hanging turned out cute.
A few close ups:
As I upload these photos, I see that I forgot to add a few button embellishments. I’ll take care of that soon.
I am making progress with Sitting Pretty.
The borders are on, and the quilt top is pin-basted.
On to the quilting. After June, I think.
I am getting my ‘Grandma Fix’. Five grandchildren, 2 daughters, and a son-in-law will be visiting this month.
Well this took me by happy surprise this morning!
Electric Quilt’s blog, Behind the Mouse, shows my quickie little project with my granddaughter. Sweet!
My six year old granddaughter and I decided we had time for one more project before her visit with me ended.
So we drew a project in Electric Quilt, and printed out templates.
Alyssa used Crayola crayons to color her fabric butterfly and flower. Then she cut out and fused the parts to a simple background that we had sewed together(Grandma applied fusible web to the fabric before Alyssa cut into the fabric) .
We had a very enjoyable afternoon crafting together.
For the curious, G Mom represents Grandma. I don’t think Alyssa could figure out how to spell Grandma.
And I see an ‘oopsie’ that we need to fix. We forgot the butterfly antennae! We shall get that done before she goes back home!
