I only have one little pitiful quilt to share. But does it make up for it if it is a really really cute quilt? Well, according to the person that made it, lol. I finished my (Kimberbell) ThanksGiving Wall Hanging a little bit ago and for the record it was after ThanksGiving. As always these size quilts are the BEST to quilt on. Even the blocks are fun to make because there is a end always in sight.
I pulled some purple to use throughout the quilt and you know it happens to be my favorite part. It is such a rich and vibrant color in my opinion and is often shadowed by other colors. I guess I am a sucker for the underdog. Anyway, It brightens the quilt up for me, now I just have to wait practically a year to properly display this little baby but it did get it's own little day hanging on the hanger just to celebrate it's finish.
I know I haven't mentioned this before but I aim to add a feather to each project if possible from now on to conquer the "FEATHER". This little tiny empty block needed a little pizzazz so thus the feather. My worry before and then not so much after was "oh crap is this going to go really bad and then it is going to stick out because there is no piecing to hide behind?". But much to my surprise the feather turned out decent.
Then the embroidery block was great because what a sweet sentiment "In all things give Thanks". It is such a great idea to keep in mind. Then my big ummm healthily plump turkey. She is delicious. I had a few purple 2.5 precuts that I pieced together before making the dresden slices in order to get the perfect shade of purple in there.
I got a label on it and it IS sewed one… isn't that a change. I used some tiny tiny little scraps from the Ohio stars on front to make some mini stars on the back. Then plopped a pumpkin, label, and some stitching on the side and finished. Too bad that it took a lot longer than that but I will give thanks that it is done.
So there you go one little pitiful finish and hopefully soon more to come. :)
Thank YOU for stopping by.
