Still trying to decrease the size of my fabric stash!   The top picture is a 16 patch block quilt made from 30s and 40s reproduction fabrics.  I ended up having to purchase about 3 or 4 fat quarters to finish the quilt, but did use up all this style fabric that I had.

The selvedge table runner is the second project I have done with selvedges.  First was a twin sized quilt and love it!  I was just playing around with the selvedges a few weeks ago and made just a few squares for this table runner.

Inadvertently, I put two of the same quilts in this post.  I may someday find out how to delete one of them!   This little quilt was done using embroidery patterns by Pearl Louise Designs.   I’ve had them done for a couple of years now and found this yellow floral print in the fabric stash and it seemed to go well with my embroidered blocks.  Love simple, traditional patterns.

Time to go and see what else I can find up in the sewing room that needs to be finished.   Happy Quilting.

Maine Felters Group met today at Aldermere Farm in Rockport, Maine.  Great place to meet, and gracious hosts who allow the group to use the barn.   Today we had the opportunity to play with making a little Santa–top photo.   Each one came out different sizes, but all too cute!

Center picture of the little gnome (learned to make these from the Gnome Lady–see her work at moongoat.com) will someday be a little wall hanging–haven’t yet decided what to put around the embellished wool felt center.   Have to let it hang as is for while until ideas come to me.

Last picture, the seahorse, was felted in a cookie cutter then embellished with fun yarn and beads.  I’ve found a couple of other cookie cutters that I want to try.   One is a cow and the other a maple leaf.   Fun for some cold winter Maine day–coming soon!
