I shudda known....

I guess I should have known that my Ladies Series wasn't over.  After all, there are LOTS of quilters and sewers out in there in blog land, I guess.  AND, some even want themselves "forever" in fabric.  Who am I to deny them, anyway???  Today we have #19 - Jane!  I know that many of you are keeping track and will correct me on my numbering system, but I must tell you that there is a #17 and #18 too and both have made it to their destination, although one of them is a Christmas gift and will stay a secret for many weeks yet.  Now, if I can keep track, that's another story!!!! By then, I can only wonder what number I'll be on????

May I present "Jane" to you?  First, as always, the drawing, then her pretty eyes and finally the finished quilt.

#19 (Jane)

Jane's eyes

#19 in Ladies Series - Jane

Besides, "Jane", I have one more thing to show you today.  This was my entry for the "Little Quilt, Sew, Vote, swap group".  I bought Malka Dubrawsky's book, "Fresh Quilting" some time ago and had to try her methods.  I really had fun and can't wait to do a few more when I have some extra time.  (Now, if I only had some of her newly released fabric, I'd have a much better time of it, believe me!!)

Colorful Squares

So, that's it for today.  Right now, I've been working on more swaps, and they are partner swaps, which means I can't show you until my partner gets it.  Bummer, I know!!!  Perhaps a few sneak peeks next time though.  Would you like that?

Your blog is so much fun to visit. Bright colors, ladies with spools dangling from her ears and pins held in her mouth. I love what you can do with thread and fabric!

I am getting my binding ready for the tree skirt. Did you start at the circle or where did you begin? How did you handle the circle??

Thanks;)

I think all of us want a Quilt Lady that looks like us! I think it would be amazing to have myself "painted" in fabric for my studio. Kind of like when the wealthy among us used to sit for a painting that then hung over their fireplaces. LOL :)

I 'sew' love these! And the little quilt is really cute, too. Have you had formal art training, or are you just insanely creative? You do such an amazing job on their faces!
