I've been working on the blue 30's strippy and its now quilted--
It's a pattern called Granny's Strippy by Darlene Zimmerman. I used my 30's repro stash and 30's plain blue.
I quilted Asher's name in the border. Let's see if I can get the binding done by March 1st.
The Workhouse on the Prairie opened! Inmate Lorri2Rs was here Saturday to Thursday. We had lots of fun, here's our selfie--
We have sequined slippers. The cheerleading pompons were used A LOT!! I don't wear my slippers all the time but 2Rs did--she said that's why she got so much done--
2Rs made me microwave bowl & plate holders and a Bionic bag. Aren't I lucky? She also made snowmen wall hangings. She made two and gave one to me. I had to do the embroidery, buttons, and binding. Inmate 2Rs insisted I do SOMETHING other than be the Warden.
Check out the fancy stitch she used to attach the binding--
Snowflakes! And there's blue snowflake fabric in the border too! We had quilting supplies--
Plenty of chocolate. One day we made body butter--
Its easy to make, 2Rs used geranium scented oil in hers, mine is jasmine. If you have dry winter skin this is the best! Shea butter, sweet almond oil and coconut oil. A tiny tiny bit of beeswax. The scented oil. That's all that's in it.
Remember when I made album blocks for two years each month for RSC? Here is a finished quilt--
It will be donated to the McCrossan Boy's Ranch (a group home) at my next guild meeting.
Last week I reported these finishes that also contained Album blocks or were blue--
Blue backing was dyed for all of these. January had a LOT of blue finishes! These also were donated to McCrossan Boy's Ranch. There are only a few album blocks not set into a top yet. At least one album top waiting to be quilted. The album blocks were addicting, I could make them for another year or two! Please see what everyone has done with blue at SoScrappy.
