It is always my birthday

Whenever I like something it is always my birthday.
And I like a lot. My friends know this and let me be. Great friends.

Local Quiltshop BOM

This is the quilt my local quilt shop is doing as the block of the month this year.
So I signed up for it. 
Here are some of the fabrics that come in the packages each month , plus the pattern for each block.

This is the first block.

Block number two.

 I am working on the third block, just need to finish sewing it together.

Since the shop cut the fabric pieces rather plenty, what is a girl to do but make some small blocks. I do like these little churn dashes.
I think I am going to like this quilt, it will look nice on the guestbed.

My youngest son's quilt

I started this quilt for Ken two years ago. He picked the pattern and the colors, I just get to sew it together. At first I thought I wanted it on point. I decided against that.

So I thought I needed to add some filler block. Did not like that either.

This is how it is going to look. I will add a small inner border of grey and the outer border will be blue.    The background is blue minky. The quilt will be long, since my 6"3 baby boy likes to cover his head and feet when he sleeps.

Perfect frame for my artwork

I done this piece last year and yesterday I found the perfect frame at IKEA for it. 
I drew a pattern of the tree and bird, than I put some glue on it, painted over it to see if it would crackle like it does on wood. It did not, so I painted over it, added some embroidery threads , some machine stitches,  some glitter paper stuff you use for scrapbooking and some yarns and beads. The background is quilted, and I bound it. I love this little piece, it now hangs in my guest room.

Ich habe dieses Stueck letztes Jahr gemacht, und gestern den perfecten Rahmen bei IKEA gekauft. Zuerst habe ich den Baum und den Vogel aufgemalt. Dann habe ich Leim draufgemalt, und dann Farbe. Ich dachte das crackled dann so wie es bei Holz passiert, aber das war net so. Daraufhin habe ich etwas darauf gestickt, mit der Maschine mit Faden genaeht, so was glitzerndes das man fuer scrap booking nimmt aufgeleimt,  und Wolle und Perlen. Der Hintergrund ist Maschinengequiltet, und es hat eine Binding.  Mir gefaellt das kleine Stueck und jetzt haengt es im Gaestezimmer.
