stitching on sleeves.

I am going to enter two of my quilts in the state fair. Just for fun. So I have been sewing sleeves on the back of them. ( still not finished ). They have to have a 6" sleeve, which seems better big to me. But I am doing it. :o) I like to sit in bed and watch movies when I do hand work. My mom has been bugging me to rent the series 'Army Wifes'. So I finally rented the first one and I really liked it. I watched the first 4 episodes while stitching.

It's August .... here is my sewconnected 3 block for John for the month of Aug. This was a little out of my box. I would never have worked with these fabrics, they just aren't me and I never would have made this block. This is one of the reasons I like joining a quilting bee groups. It makes me work with fabrics and make blocks that I would never have thought of before.



Happy sewing!!!

Good luck with your quilts in the fair! I have been thinking about entering a quilt, but I realized all the quilts I have made were given as gifts.

I love, love, love the Good Folks line! I am glad you got a chance to use some. =]

Sewing in bed. I haven't done that yet, but you never know ;-). Love the block too. I wished I had fabrics like that in my stash...
