Sew much to do – sew little time

Wow – working full time really gets in the way of my fun. I also had 3 grandchildren visiting for 1 1/2 months this summer so practically  no sewing got done – except for teaching the girls to make pillowcases.



I am backlogged now on baby quilts so I need to get busy – more grandchildren on the way!  Here is a photo of a Stomp Chomp Roar quilt I made for my grandson (pattern by Pam Manning).  After I made it – several of my friends ran out and bought her book and made quilts for their grandsons!

My favorite method of applique, which I used on this quilt, is using templar, a heat resistant plastic that allows you the starch and iron your fabrice around the template shape.  Then I love to hand stitch it down but I must admit, I may start doing a little more machine stitching from now on.  The backlog of projects is growing!
