A Row by Row group challenge--I make my first row then others in the group will make one. Here is mine before stitching some embroidered flowers etc. on it.
I have been looking at row quilts on different internet photo sites. There are some neat ones out there. This one, for Halloween, I thought was especially neat. Look at the little ghost nestled in all the candy cane pieces in the border! Also, the flashlights are really imaginative, I think. The way that they are shining in different directions--love it!
A little closer look--
I have organized all my Block of the Month patterns into a large notebook. I include my patterns, directions, fabrics chosen and then put my blocks in as I finish them. I also put my fabric blocks ready to stitch in and my sketches for my own designs. I love looking through and adding ideas as I get them.
This is a glue product that I found at WalMart the other day. I had not seen it before. It has a fine and wider tip and claims to be a "no wrinkle" product. I am sure this refers to paper, but I am hoping it will be wonderful for fabric applique. I will report to you later and let you know if it works better than a regular glue stick. It is a liquid product.
Do you wear Mary Kay eye shadow? I do and I came up with an idea to use these little plastic containers that the eye shadow comes in. They are about 2 x 2 inches.
I cut my embroidery needles as they were in the package--out in the exact right size to fit in the container. Then-----
I also cut out the information from the front of the package out and placed it on the top of the outside. I have several of these with different kinds of needles in them and I can always get to my needles easily and know what kind they are. Justa little idea I had. I am sure there are other containers that would work just as well as these.
