I always like to show progress from the weekend on my Monday posts. Today that is what you get.
I woke up Friday wanting to embellish a t-shirt. I took a stripof fabric 14" long by 4" wide. Then I finished the rough edges and made 3 lines of shirring. After that I top stitched it onto my t-shirt. The pic is bad because it is from my iphone. It was fun to make.
I made more progress on my Butterfly Kisses quilt, which shall here after be known as my Lady GaGa quilt. Lori texted me that they look like Lady GaGa eyes after I referred them as eyes in my post last week. I like the name and it is sticking. Lori is my muse and I love when she names my quilts.
I finished the binding on my new quilt "Freda's Flowers". I love the quilting that Wendy of Eagle Mountain Quilting did. She quilted wavy cross hatch. The back of the quilt is a vintage sheet.
The pattern is coming soon. I'm working on my small version sample quilt. I picked up Wendy's Jelly Roll to make her a quilt top (we are trading quilt top for machine quilting). So I have lots to do!

Lady GaGa - perfect name! And isn't it nice that you can swap services with your quilter. That's a win/win situation.
