Carol had just completed a t-shirt top for a gal and had this piece left as an “orphan” block…..bonus for the recipient for sure!
These next photos are Joan’s “quilt rescues” that will be added to her enormous collection of vintage quilts. This one, found at the Salvation Army by her hubbs, was in amazing condition!!!!! But wait….there’s more……………….
Yup, she did very well and is the reason I don’t find this type of treasure when I go to these spots!!!!! Next, I share a couple of travel pillows I covered for a (quickly) upcoming Amtrak vaca that DH & I will be taking……… And, sandwiched in amongst all, is the beginnings of the upcoming holiday’s secret stitchings…..
Lastly…..a little marking “hint” that I often use, when needing registration markings on darker fabric…….. You are seeing correctly. Plain blackboard chalk leaves absolutely no residue and is able to be sharpened nicely in a small handheld pencil sharpener. The markings seem to hold just fine even though I’m not quilting on a frame-mounted longarm machine.
