I finished it! Yippee!
I will do the binding this weekend, but the quilting is done!
When I do wall hangings or small projects, it is time efficient to quilt a couple quilts at the same time, so I cut a large piece of the tea dye muslin. My customers only pay for the part of the fabric that is for their quilt.
Of course, I change threads for each quilt, but it really is a time saver to do them all at once.
I am not going to show you all of them today, just the Tiptoe Quilt.
The Tiptoe Quilt was from Tonya's Quilt Along from last year's May for Me Celebration. I started it last year, but didn't complete it til a couple week's ago at the quilting retreat - click here for that post.
Tonya shared how to do the embroidery squares, but I knew right away that I was going to thread paint them. Originally, I was going to change thread colors, but I started on the first one with the light blue and I just kept going. I loved it all in blue. Like blue work or red work. First, the little Dutch girl...
and then the windmill.
I stitched the tulips next.
Last, but not least, the title of the quilt. I added ... during May for Me and the heart.
I meandered through the rest of the quilt and added a little twist of daisies.
I flipped it over so you could see the back of the quilt.
I really enjoyed making this little quilt and I loved quilting it. Thanks Tonya for sharing the Quilt Along last year. I am so pleased to have it completed!
I'll share the other quilts in future posts. Like the scrappy squares - mug rugs - this week yet and the zig zag quilts - next week.
On the second day of May, I am so please to have found more than 5 minutes of time to play and still got all my work done - customer's quilts quilted. This item was #2 on my list!
Write them down --- they will happen!
#1 was the dancing. I'm still dancing!
Today, I am going to dance to "Make Your Own Kind of Music" by Mama Cass! Here is the link to that song: http://youtu.be/PEQxEJ5_5zA Or you can go to the May for Me Celebration Page and listen to it.
#6 was polish my toes. This may happen tonight during the storms, when I can't sleep and can't be on the computer.
Tell me what you are doing for fun in May! If you posted about it and would like to link it up to the Minutes for Me Linky Party, it starts on Thursday!
Enjoying May for Me, one day at a time!
My Bingo Items for calling will be on the next post starting at 5am CST on May 3rd. Click here.
