    I promised myself I'd not make one more item that requires a binding, so that leaves doll blankets, pillowcases and bookmarks. :wink: So today I made some orphan squares into doll blankets.

    I'm not good at free motion quilting, as I've discussed with a few trusted friends, my stippling looks like a field of...a field of... swallow anything you have in your mouth...a field of
    male private parts. :oops: :shock: :oops: :shock: :oops:
    SO, I changed to loop de loops and I think that ought to help the problem. :roll: :wink: :roll:

    I've also recently finished a Talk-About-Quilt, but I think it's sold... a pregnant young woman at school wants it. :D Picture in next group.

    The count of completed items to be sold so far is (drum roll, please)
    33 bookmarks
    15 potholders
    2 large hot pads
    5 doll blankets
    3 baby blankets
    6 table runners
    4 various sized wall hangings/table toppers
    3 lap quilts
    1 large quilt (104" square)

    Still in need of the binding sewn on the back are
    Patriotic Hearts--a table topper--picture below
    Wild Thing--a lap quilt-picture below
    and 4 table runners

    That makes 78 items so far. I still have until Nov 8th. The only thing I'll make from here are pillow cases...I bought lots of cool fabrics for those--remember? I bind at night when I'm too tired to do anything else.

    The green sheet in the background is what I bought to be a table cover. I'll post a photo below of the price tags I made.

    I saved some gourds to decorate the table with... and I have boxes, etc to put under the sheet to add dimension...

    The Talk-About is an educational quilt I designed years ago--it comes with a pamphlet to show parents how to use it.


    Patriotic Hearts needs the binding sewed on... I love the quilting on that one--see the hearts? I pinned on patterns and machine stitched around with loop-de-loops to the next one. The hearts are done in the ditch. THAT I'm good at. :wink:

    See my price tags? The card stock is actually bright yellow!



    Talk-About--my own design.

    Wild Thing--I put a green binding on...

    And here's a photo of the table runner I saved for our kitchen table. Actually, I saved two more tops out to decide if I want to keep them. If I don't, they still need sandwiching. Yuck. That's enough for me to let them sit where they are. :wink:

    Wow! That's so great! I'mgetting ready for my own craft fair on the 2nd of November and I'm not at all prepared. I think I'll take a leaf out of your book and get busy!

    I went to a fair today and they had little doll blankets and pillows that were made out of the cutest fabric, so I think I'll do that as well!

    You're ready to start selling! WOOT! :lol:

    No orders!! That would put me over the edge for sure. :wink: This was a bit more than I planned...and I only tried it this time because I had my summer free. IF I do it again it'll be 100 bookmarks and 40 pillowcases and that's all!! :wink:

    Hours and hours of work for 5 hours. If it all sells I'll make enough to buy another horse! :lol:
