One year, when I was in high school, I cut out all these squares from fabric leftover from clothes my Mom had made me or that I had made myself and gave the squares as a Christmas gift to my folks. Of course the plan was to make them into a quilt... Fast forward about 10 years or so, I am married and find these squares and decide to make the quilt- I have no idea what I'm doing so I just slapped them together. It makes me laugh to see how I didn't think about colors together, some of the same colors are touching, the embroidered squares aren't even centered! I found this again (still unfinished...) when I was cleaning out my sewing area. Time to try to get this done! Or maybe next year...? Here is a close of of one of the embroidered squares:
It's funny, but I can remember almost all the clothes that were made from these fabrics. The upper right is from my high school graduation dress.
Another project I'm working on is an apron for our Awana carnival- it's called" pick a pocket".
You put prizes in the different pockets and they get to choose. FUN!
In the blank looking place are blue pockets that I will stencil question marks on. Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday- what are you working on?
