The Q Team
So we started out with the design part of the process. We are sewing a quilt for the AIDs orphanage in Africa. The school colors are brown and yellow, so we started with those colors from our stashes. And I went to JoAnne's yesterday and found a few things to go with them. So here is our design process starting.
I found some vintage Mickey Mouse print. Ain't he cute? The colors don't come through as well as I would like. He's brown and his gloves and shoes are yellow!!
MJ gave me a lovely pincushion and it makes me happy to use it. I even got fancy pins to use with it.
Here's MJ and Jean and Shadow, who has been such a big help! He has been lying on pieces to make life more interesting. When we get things laid out, he sits down and looks at them with his butt. We can't get him to ferry pieces from one room to the other, though we tried. He's rather ADHD about it all.
Here we are with the finished quilt. Three women, and a whole quilt - start to finish - in THREE hours! We are the Q-team. Q because we are so cute. One pins. one sews, one presses. And voila, a quilt materializes. Yeah, it's big squares, and it's quick and dirty, but it's fun, fun, fun!
And here is what we are doing with the left-overs. I had to leave at three, but MJ and Jean are going to sew on. And some day soon, we will take quilts to Medical Team International. Yayy!
