It is time to Join the fun at Cat Patches with my new projects for November. It is not necessary to finish a project, just start. I did a lot of both!
And the Stockings.
I made this Creeper for my Daughter-in-law to give my grandson for Christmas.
A creeper is a creature from Mind Craft computer game. It is made out of my Son's uniforms that he wore in Iraq.
Then I started making Biscuit quilts.
Top and bottom of blocks, 6 and 4.5 inch
Stitched together with wrong sides together with a box pleat .
Slit in back for stuffing.
Sew together in rows. These are 8 by 15 blocks.
Stuff all of the center blocks, leaving the outer row. Instead of hand stitching each block closed, I used Heat Bond and Muslin strips and ironed a patch over the holes.
I added a fleece back, turned and tied them together.
Finished at 32 x 60
As you can see, I will have to make more for my special helpers! .
As it turned out, I needed Birthday presents, so the boys got theirs on Thanksgiving.
I will make the next one longer!
After doing stuffed Yo-Yo's for Halloween last month, I made a Christmas tree.
It is decorated with buttons. There is another one in the works.
One last Project is my official NewFO
I used a charm pack of Grunge fabrics. Just needs a back, quilting and binding.
