Hugs and Kisses Hop Day One- Psst, My Day

It's here!!

I am so excited for this hop, pink, red, and inspiration abound! Yippee!!
Thank you to Madame Samm for yet another truly heart-filled idea!  And for allowing me to be the cheerleader!

Let's Go!

I  get to share the day with these talented ladies.

Monday February 11th

When I have an idea for a project, I can see the picture in my head and know just what I want to do...
But Why? Why I ask you
does my project
NEVER 
look like the picture?

As Pooh Bear would say "Oh, bother"

My picture, A Valentine Table-Runner. Long and skinny.
My project, a table topper fat and square!!
BUT, I still love it.

I started out with 2 1/2 inch strips that I sewed in a random order. 
 Hoping to make it long and skinny. 


Should have measured the strips first!  Live and learn.
So the plan changed to a table topper.

Michael Miller Ta Dots for border and binding.


Michael Miller Disco Dots for backing.


Thanks to a blogging friend, I knew I wanted to try stamping fabric. Conversation Hearts have stamped words on them and sometimes the stamping is off center or not stamped all the way. Oh, this was perfect for me! I got out my stamps, heart templates and got busy.  I did iron Pellon on to the fabric before I cut the hearts so I could fuse them on to the topper.


Well I decided to try my hand at machine quilting.  By the time I was done (mind you this is about 24 X 24 inches) I wanted to throw my machine out the window.  No more for me, I hand quilt.

Bless all of you who can machine quilt. I am in awe! 
 Here is a sample of my attempt!


YOU KNOW,
there are more things I cannot do than can.
  I amuse myself!
I cannot applique!
Yet, I try, and this is what I came up with.
Oh yes I did use my Presencia  Thread.




One final touch Ric Rac, I love Ric Rac!


 I also wanted to show you a close up of my favorite vase. This was my mother's as is the plate in the final picture. I believe this is called Milk Glass. These are so very special to me.


And Ladies and Gentleman, Here she is........
 Hot coffee and brownies too, yummy!


If you have made it this far you deserve a reward!
How about  6 fat quarters?

  41. jane you are so humble -- I think your machine quilting looks pretty good for someone that is a hand quilter. (which I envy you for because I can not hand quilt -- or aplique). The project looks great and I love that stamping technique mostly because I have all thoes items on hand and never thought to use them in quilting so I may have a new technique for lables. Thanks also for this amazing give away -- whoever wins is one lucky lady.

    ReplyDelete

  49. THANK YOU!! The fact that you say you cannot do something like machine quilting and you are okay with that.. makes me feel good!! Really darn good. You are so so good at so many other quilting things, and so maybe I have hope yet! I need to learn to try new things and be okay with the things that I can do, and okay with the things that I cannot. Just DO things that I can, and oh well to the things that I tried and was not able to do.. but TRY them, and say that oh well.. THANK YOU for that!!!

  51. I really think it turned out fabulous. You do realize we are our worse critics. I really like the colors and the hearts tamped was a fabulous idea. I never get good ideas like that. And as I am still very new to all this quilting . Let me be the first to tell you my machine quilting totally sucks bigtime...I have been tempted to start handquilting. Thank you for the chance to enter your giveaway. I really love those fabrics. I would definitely use tehm to make me a runner or table topper... conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)com

  171. Thank you for being the official cheerleader for this hop! This is my all time favorite holliday as I am a total heart nut and love all things heartsy! The topper is wonderful and you are as well. I enjoyed your post and the humor you include with it. As I rarely ever leave a comment I did wish to particularly because of the humor in your post that I sew enjoyed!

  173. Really cute project, even though it's square instead of rectangular. Love the stamping too, exactly how I stamp! As I lie here recovering from hip surgery, I really enjoyed your project.

  174. This is really cute and I love the stamped hearts. I'm with you when it comes to machine quilting, it's fighting me all the way but I will eventually win and be able to do it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  176. I really like your conversation hearts runner. Last time I saw a project that I liked using stamped letters I added Staz On to my shopping list but never did get the stamps and ink pad. Ok, it's on the list again. Thanks for the giveaway.
