So…what have I been doing?
While I neglected this site…it is for a reason…I have been busy.
I put together another baby quilt – with an animal alphabet fabric. 🙂 All I have to do is bind and label before it is delivered.
I got 2 new clients, 1 for a T-shirt quilt
I have cut the shirts, interfaced them, put the in order and cut them into blocks…next on this project is to cut sashing and sew it all together.
I have another client with 2 tops that need to be quilted.
An around the world quilt for all over meander. I am still trying to decide if it is to be quilted with yellow or purple thread.
This one is made from blocks purchased at an estate sale. The blocks were hand pieced in Texas in the 1930’s. Each block has an embroidered name, probably of the maker, some have dates and cities. It too is quilted in an all over meander, simple but one of the best ways to deal with too much fabric in one area.
I had to kick Magic Cat off the quilt this morning. The cat’s think that this is a wonderful place to nap.
I have been buying thread – well mom and I. Stocking up colors of the my favorite kind.
One of my new ideas is to make up post cards specifically for T-shirt quilts and drop them off at sporting stores and others that cater to those that collect shirts for sporting events. I have priced out quilts for 9-36 t-shirts in 2 different styles. This way people have a known labor price and specific options, easy for them, easy for me.
I am getting some quilted goods and girls dresses together to start an Etsy Store of one of a kind pieces for girls sizes 2T to 6X and quilts. The girls dresses will be under the label, Lil Miss Quilt’m.
I made 2 of these and embellished the other 2.
A friend of mine has begun to create floral accessories. I commissioned her to make a flower hair clip for the floral dress. I am planning on having several of the little girls I know be models for my dresses. So far I have just done the floral dress with my friends little girl that is almost 2 years old.
It has been a busy several weeks. I am planning on getting a business license soon, by the end of April. Finishing the baby quilt and those for my customers. Do 2 more photo shoots for Lil Miss Quilt’m. And get the Etsy store up and running. And Lord willing the quilting business will be picking up and continue to keep me busy among everything else that I need to do.
