The Purple Quilt
When the long arm machine arrived in May, the first project I quilted was sheets.
Not just ordinary sheets, but Goodwill sheets purchased on yellow ticket day at half price.
Washing up the sheets made them smell lovely.
I made this practice quilt for my nephew Devan--he loves bright colors
My studio--a Grace majestic quilt frame and Babylock Crown Jewel long arm quilting machine.
Quilting of the purple sheet begins.
Three layers: orange bottom sheet, batting, purple flat sheet for the top.
And then there was the fitted sheet . . . I deconstructed it, and made myself a blouse.
Not just an ordinary blouse . . . I made my own polymer buttons for the blouse.
Let me know if you'd like to see more polymer clay buttons and beads.
I've been making lots of them.
I feel guilty showing my sewing/craft photos as this is a Victorian Farmhouse website, but honestly--there's more to my life than plaster, paint, and dust pans of debris. No wait, maybe not.
Oh, I don't know.
Let me think about that for a while.
