Guild Challenge Quilt

I spent time this morning again working on my challenge quilt for the Santiam Scrappers  Quilt Guild challenge this year.  I'm just about finished with the final border, then it's on to layering, quilting, and binding.  I'm hoping to get to that point next week.

The final border includes some Star blocks:

And some blocks with Hearts (4 hearts make up each flower):


And Curved Piecing blocks:



I also added a couple more Appliqued Ladybugs:

I will post pictures of the finished quilt once it's all done!  It will be quite colorful!

Pin Cushions

I've been making some basic pin cushions to sell at quilt and craft shows this Fall.  They are fairly simple ones, but are fun to do.

This is one that can be tied to most sewing machines.  It's small, but handy for quickly grabbing pins while sewing.


These are two of the larger ones.   They're 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" and have a button sewn in the middle. 


This is one of the smaller ones.  They look like little pillows and are 3" x 3".
