A Quilt for the Quilting Lady

Back in  March, I showed you the Quilting Lady I added to the Quote Quilt, along with her inspirational picture. I planned to add the quilt that my niece made me. I showed the charm quilt to you in July 2010.

I have finally gotten the charming quilt out to audition it for the quote quilt. Here's a reminder of the charming quilt.  The photos are better now with a better camera and lighting. The quilt is made out of squares of adorable fabric and is completely hand stitched.  There are little charms attached - two pairs of scissors, a thimble and a blue elephant. The quilt is upside down in the photo. The coral floss on the bottom left can be used to hang up the quilt.

I also love the fabric used for the back. The quilt is tied with the ties in the back.

Here is what the quilt looks like on the Quilting Lady. It is the perfect size. I just have to find a proper way to drape the quilt so it looks like she is working on the quilt, but being careful not to cover up the quotes.

I might let it cover up this side quote so people can flip up to see the back of the charming quilt and find the hidden quote underneath.

While I was up there, I got out this T-shirt I wore in my smaller days.  I cut out a motif to add to the quilt.

The orange is bright, but I think with enough of it turned under, it shouldn't be too much for the quilt. I haven't decided where to place it yet, but I will really have to make sure it is in a position where it will be pleasing because it will be eye catching for sure.


2020:  Weeks 37 of 15 Minutes to Stitch


I spent a lot of time this week working on the cross stitch moon that I added to the quote quilt. I showed you the moon and the other motifs I added to the quilt in my last post.

15 minute days this week -- 7 out of 7
15 minute days this year -- 203 out of 257 days
Success rate  = 79%

 I can finally round up to 79%. 

I hope you are staying safe dodging the virus and the fires and the smoke.

Your Quilt Lady and her quilt are wonderful. And that sunflower - wow!

That little quilt is perfect on there and I like your idea of the loose edge to fold it back and see the backing and the quote.

What a beautiful sunflower. I was going to plant some this year and never got to a store to get seeds. I should have ordered some online. There's always next year.
