A Stitch Here and a Stitch There

A stitch here plus a stitch there equals progress. Just odds and ends to share this week. I cooked for a crew for 3 days this week and those 2:30 am wake up calls gave me some extra time behind the sewing machine.

I really enjoyed embroidering 16 of these soon to be corn hole bags (bean bags) for a  friend's son's wedding. They are planning a variety of yard games for the reception (Doesn't that sound like a fun idea?)  and T sent me the fabric with a request for an embroidered monogram on each bag.


And I pieced the Fun Flower Baby Quilt into a top


 I also made this valance for my kitchen window a while back, but I don't think I ever shared it.


 I had run across the fabric while searching for something for a friend at Joann's and knew it would be perfect in my kitchen.


And I finally stitched up some matching potholders this week:


And an apron may find its way under the needle soon.

 I also finished out the week by piecing this top for the Rodeo Baby baby quilt. There will be strips running across the top and the bottom that will have appliqued stars running across them as well as a star in the center, but the center blocks are pieced.


I hope to get the stars appliqued and make a plan for the Don't Fence Me In horse quilt this week.

It's a wonderful baby quilt! Love that line of fabrics. Your valence does brighten your kitchen. I need to get behind my sewing machine more than I do. I am cutting out some summer clothes and trying to get this quilt quilted! Hope your summer is fun!

Great projects and finished items!

I admit the corn hole bags stumped me for a bit. I'm assuming these are for a game?

Pauline said...

Whew! I'm worn out just thinking about all these accomplishments. 2:30 AM! I'd have gone back to sleep. All are wonderful, keep up the good work!

Corn hole bags? That's a new one to this Texan. Cute curtain!

Dorian said...

Glad to see your getting some sewing time in Karin. Your quilts are looking good. Nice valance too :) I've been doing very little sewing, but a little bit, here and there. I really need to get into my sewing room more. Sigh~ Have a great day.

Pauline said...

Yes, Carol, what are corn hole bags?

I haven't sewed a stitch for over a week:( I sure like your stitching tho!!!

Cathy said...

Love the bean bags. Your valence is really cute and the Rodeo quilt is adorable. My niece is having twins in the fall and I decided to sew up Rodeo quilts for them. Thanks for the inspiration!

Rita said...

I just ran across your blog and I'm loving it! Like your kitchen valance and I'll be looking at JoAnn's for the fabric. Thank you for sharing.

Corn hole games are very popular in the Midwest and may be known by other names around the country. The bags turned out beautifully!

Shelly said...

I love that flower baby quilt! And your curtain, too. I need to make some curtains for my house. Your Rodeo Baby quilt looks good so far.

Chiska said...

Beautiful projects all! Don't know how I missed this post--busy week I guess. I love your baby quilts!

I'm excited to see what you do with your horses. That's some pretty fabric.

Your flower quilt has turned out very pretty. :-) I vote for an apron to match the valances, of course! It will be interesting to see what you come up with for the "Don't Fence Me In" quilt.

Lot of great sewing going on. Now how many layers does your pot holder have. I still can't get those right. Love your rodeo star - Shelly came up with a great pattern. I vote for an apron also. Thanks for sharing, Karin.
