My Latest Quilt for Leila is another from the BeAttitudes pattern by Nancy Halvorsen.
When I made the first one, I cut out all the little pieces for six future quilts and put them in envelopes. Then sewed the quilt.
I had to redesign some of the blocks because the original pattern was for only six BE's in President Hinckley's talk.
Later he published a book with nine BE's.
Nancy's patterns were so much simpler, and easier to do. I don't know why my work gets so much more complicated. I love her owl.
Here is some of the quilting I did. I learned from the best on the internet. I love Lori Kennedy's blog, the Inbox Jaunt.
I love the way she teaches.
When I made the second one for Calise, I sewed all of the blocks and ironed on all the appliques, so for this quilt, I had a head start. I had to blanket stitch around all the pieces, while I was at it, I stitched two sets of blocks, because I must make another BeAttitudes quilt before September 3rd of this year. I have 4 (FOUR) quilts I have to complete this summer.
I traced all the letters for two quilts as well.
I've just completed the second quilt this summer for Mat. His is a Christus statue with the planets surrounding him. I titled it "Christ is Watching Over You."
Pictures will be forthcoming.
