    Sharing Quilts Friday Rhonda K

    Today is Show n Tell Friday. It was always a favorite day in grade school when we could share our stories with classmates. I hope you like these little projects today.

    First up is Mr. Gobbler. This was a fun class where we traded fabrics back and forth. Oh, I like that one. We made the dresden pieces and then it was time to sew them together. Guess, I wasn't paying attention. I asked my dear friend if this was the right way to sew them? She glanced over and said yes, so I proceeded. Um, Mr. Gobbler was in a "U" shape. After a fit of giggles and a teacher with a fast ripper he came to life.

    Next is a back-pack bag. I quilted the fabric on the embroidery machine first and cut the pattern. Now I just need a travel destination to wear it. Where would you like to go?

    This was a UFO for a long time I found when going through my projects. So I decided to finish it so I could show it to you and not have to say it's a UFO. I keep a small bookmark of the same verse to remind me that I am never alone.

    I always use a water soluble topping when embroidering letters. It keeps the letters from sinking into the fabric. This one called for flange binding to accent the edges. Here is the backing fabric that I quilted with one piece of batting. Then fused the front and back with misty fuse to hold them together. I even added a sleeve for hanging.

    This is a scrappy table runner made with left over batiks. I love prairie points and wanted to practice. It was all sewn together and then quilted in the hoop using a free motion embroidery design.

    Here is the inspiration video. I have learned so may tips from her videos.

    These are happy little guys and fun to make on the embroidery machine.

    I added ric rac under the binding for a fun accent.

    Finally, what is a Friday without Flamingos?

    The left wall-hanging is applique with a flange binding. The right table runner was made with scraps and embroidery machine. I use this one under my machine. I hope you like these small yet fun projects!

      All of your projects are darling, specially the turkey and Santas. You make me regret selling my embroidery machine.


        Enjoyed them all!


          Great projects!! I havd a turkey too lol I also made a quilt. The Santas are darling!!



            We bought the Dresden plate die so Cheryl could make a Thanksgiving turkey runner. With everything else going on this year I can't see it getting done until next year. Love all your projects!

                  What fun projects. Love them all! I'm a fan of the Footprints poem.


                    Loved seeing all your projects! When I saw your Santa's I chuckled, another Sweet Pea fan! Still have to stitch mine out.
