Finished machine appliquéing my " LET'S GO SEWING  " Quilt  and sewing on my border



 
I was so happy when I found I had all of the matching threads in my stash to appliqué this quilt :-D


This is where it will be hanging  in my sewing room when it gets back from the quilter


With all of my Vintage Children Sewing machine Collection

Been a busy week .

Going to try to help hubby make  potato salad and macaroni Salad for 100 people for a retirement party my daughter is giving this weekend and going to a baby shower on Saturday.

Have a great weekend

My 2 baby quilts came back from Mary of Quilt Hollow and always she did a great job icing these 2 baby quilts for me . Just look how cute they are :-D


In the Ocean quilt made of Riley Blake fabric and I appliquéd the whales in the center

Love this fabric with its cute whales , crabs, jelly fish .......
