6" Blocks

A friend of mine asked me if the Richmond block I'm making for my version of the Oh My Gosh quilt could be made with jelly roll strips...  of course,  but they'll be 6" finished!

Six inch Richmond blocks!!!


I love them!!!

Let There Be Light

So awhile back I bought LED lights for me bernina. I have two berninas that are the same. Long story short, my mom gave me hers when she got a new machine...


So anyway,  Saturday I'm thinking I should put the LED light in the machine I'm using. I had already put one in the other machine but switched machines out when I had to take that one to be serviced. I'm thinking I have 1 more LED light... 


I fiddle with trying to get the old light out for 20/ 30 minutes. My little tool to take it out has deteriorated after almost 40 years and crumbled all to pieces.  I search for something that will work. I finally took a cap from a gel pen and shove it on the light bulb. I managed to get the old bulb out and put the new one in...



Yesterday I kept thinking... this isn't any brighter. Today I look up my receipt. Yeah! I only bought 1 LED bulb! I put the old bulb from my other machine in this machine and it took me like 45 minutes to do so!!!

I've now ordered 2 more LED lights!

Hanging Sleeve

I decide my Shadow Box quilt needed a hanging sleeve... cause, you just never know. Hand stitching the edge down. Then all I need is to make a label.

TaDone

Done... my Shadow Box quilt. I love it. I only wish I made it bigger to fit my bed!


No pattern... I drafted it myself.
Quilting... Interlicking Square at Urban Elementz
Thread... Perma Core on top with Bottom Line in the bobbin.
Batting... Warm Plush


I enjoy using my scraps on the back... I think it makes it more interesting!



I'm really loving this texture!
