Sewing With Bunny

Bunny gave me this Spode Friendship Mug.
I love stitching with Bunny!

This is the second quilt we are sewing together.
(and Yes I am using my Black Featherweight!)

Bunny has the best sense of humor of anyone I know.

We Stitch.  And we Laugh!

"This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118:24

Victoria and Albert Museum - Textiles 2

This Swaddling Band was in the same display case as the Bonnet posted earlier.

On my  recent visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum it was my purpose to look at textiles and design.

The beautiful displays at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Elizabeths Quilt

Liz has been one of my most enthusiastic Quilt admirers.

Now, her quilt is finished (and in time for her birthday).

I asked her what colors she likes and she told me she wanted something "Girly".

I bought a pack of 10" Squares from this fabric line.

This fabric is from Lecien called Rococo and Sweet.  It is really much prettier than you can tell from my photos.  I think it is girly.

And I stitched them together on point.  Then sewed borders around the quilt.  I love this quilt. It's bright and happy.

I love just about any fabric from Lecien.

My Brown Dog is a little bored today.
On the day she was coming over I was finishing stitching the label to the Quilt Back.
(always a last minute person!)

I like to hand embroider my Quilt Labels.

Happy Birthday Liz!

She was very happy with her  quilt - success :)
