Love those Quilts of Valor Quilts

A couple of beautiful Quilts of Valor made by Joyce.  The first is one for her hubby.  She has embroidered all of the locations her husband served while in the military.  What a keepsake!

JUST OFF THE LONGARM

Standard

What a wonderful quilt using K. Fassett fabrics.  Even the back has some great color use.  Used a very geometry quilting pattern on this quilt with thread color that accentuated the texture of the quilt rather than the pattern.  I really love working on these hot colored prints!  Congrats to Roberta on another fantastic creation!

Happy Quilting…stay tuned for more.  Karen

Missed  a few blogs these past couple of weeks.  I was challenged on Facebook to post seven quilt pictures in seven days.  Didn’t quite make it in seven days but thought I’d add them in slide show forms to catch you up if you aren’t on Facebook.  Here ya go…

While I’m thinking about Facebook, does anyone else have the issue with U-Tube videos not “shutting up” if you close out of them without hitting the stop/pause on the video.  Drives me nuts as it keeps yapping until I reopen and stop the video or it just runs out itself.  Hate it.  That just started an update or two ago.  Yuck!!!!

Oh well, lots of bigger problems going on, but, just saying…

Happy Quilting, Karen

 

Easy Binding Winder – I’m in love!

Standard

I am in love with the new Easy Binding Winder.  I do so many quilts for myself, customers, and particularly for charity and I HATE THE BINDING PART!!!  Yes, I know most quilters love to bind but definitely not me.  Just making and ironing the binding is more than enough – boring! – but sewing it on is, for me, a nightmare.  When I came across this new tool it made my world soooooooooo  much better!  My binding goes from a heap on the floor to a well organized roll easily freed as I sew in on my quilt.  Most often, due to my binding obsession, I sew both sides of the binding by machine.  This is so great.  Check out the pics of my last binding project.  There is actually enough binding on the EASY Binding Winder to bind to charity quilts, one king size and one thrown.  I clamp it to my ironing board when I’m making the binding the move it to my sewing table when I’m ready to apply.  Check out Easy Binding Winder for more information and a video.
