On Kimber's Memory Quilt I am about to finish this blue tshirt block...
Here are the blocks I have started piecing on my Gloria .. my 301A sewing machine.. called Anita's Arrowhead...
then press them open.. I press all to the dark..
And here is a drawing of the quilt to be I am calling Take 2
The center block will be hand embroidered in some fun loud colored thread to yet be decided... her name, birth date and time, height and weight... her mom Keashia, may write this information so I can copy her handwriting as my font style for embroidering this info :) I am very excited and just hope she can decide how to write it and send it to me ! lol
But I only have 2 or 3 of the blocks made.. so I better get to making more.. they are all cut out and ready to sew together!!!
My review on making this block is that directions could be a bit more clear that I found before knowing the name of the block.. a friend shared the recipe with me and it wasn't all great even though this is a good beginner block.. not so with the instructions I used! lol I love making the block and the finish.. but Best Press is definitely necessary!!!
In other news...I got an underhand thimble from my friend Kathy!!!! She found it at a quilt shop while visiting Michigan and at my behest mailed it while on her vacation!!! lol I am so blessed to have such a special friend!!!!
So cool this lightweight and thin plastic thimble is... this is a large and initially I thought it too loose... but it fits perfect actually... and the material is still thin enough that I can vaguely feel the needle :)
Also happy that my daughter...who has been sick all week with fevers, abd pains, and worsening headaches... has a diagnosis after a trip to the doctor and finally to the emergency room they figured out she had a urinary tract infection!!! And was it bad!!!! So antibiotics we got and exhausted we were.. but we got it figured out is the important part... it wasn't anything crazy... just a UTI! Praise God for the little things for sure :)
Please keep happy thoughts headed her way as she recovers over the weekend :)
As for me... I am glad it is Sunday and time for some Slow Stitching so I am linking up with Kathy HERE! You can check out the mini quilt she won in a raffle too!!!
So what are you working on this weekend?? I would love to hear about your accomplishments too!
Until my next update...
