Welcome to Sandy's Sew Clever Blog. I hope you enjoy looking around and leaving me a comment or two.
This is my first entry and my first time blogging. I know, I'm a tab bit behind the times, but, better late than never.
Thought it was about time to get with the program and do some posting of some of my sewing projects. I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, but started quilting about a year and half ago.
I am working on my 16th quilt (my first paper pieced project) and can't wait to get it finished. (more on that later)
I have been checking out other blogs on quilting and found some AMAZING workmanship and a lot of inspiration. I will list a few of my favs later so you can check them out.
Ok, now for a few pics:
This is Scooter on the quilt I made for Everett, one of my grand Nephews. She has to check each quilt out and give it her approval. This one she had to make sure it was kid friendly and it passed with flying colors.
This is my Black and White on the design board. I got bored and started laying material down, 5 at a time, and wacking them in 5 differant directions, scattered them out and then sewed 'em up. I will post the finished quilt later.
Since I finished the black and white quilt and I really liked it, I had to (remember those words I had to) redo the extra bedroom so it would show off the quilt and look good. You know, paint, pictures, refinishing the bed and dresser, new rug, sheets and pillows. I had to order, there are those words again, a new slipcover for my chaise so it would fit into the room. It was green and white strip, yeah, it wouldn't work with the black and white. Just a few little small things that had to be done.
Anyway I will add those pics of the finished room as soon as I twick it a bit.
COLOR, COLOR, COLOR!!! I LOVE COLOR.
This is my latest project in the works. My first attempt at paper piecing. I think I am in LOVE. This is SO much fun and SO easy. If you haven't had the nerve to try this, just do it, you will be hooked in no time.
So much color and design, the two things I love the most.
Well, that's all for now. I will update you on my progress.
