First on the list was my Godson Oren's son's Bris! It was fabulous being with "the family" for a good part of the day and seeing my God son take on the role of father. Here they are......you could just eat that baby, he is so sweet!
...and here is Mommy, Daddy and baby Shai ( you will note he is wrapped in the blanket I made for him - the replica of his father's blanket made 30 years ago)......
I decided I wanted another one to hang there, so I took my collection of Lori Smith patterns home and chose #1 Fit to Frame. Friday night I took the light box home and prepped my Soft Fuse (I love that stuff). I decided to use the same method Nancy used in hers - which is raw edge applique with a blanket stitch.
Tonight I chose my background and fused all the pieces and voila!I am absolutely thrilled with the results! Along with fabrics from the store I was able to dig into my "home" stash and I couldn't be happier....I just finished choosing all the floss from my vast home supply for the blanket stitching and since the Applique Club (Apple Cake Club - as my son Jonathan refers to it) will be meeting this Friday - the 11th, I can begin stitching this great applique.
The best part is - I have more than enough fabric from all my fat quarters to make at least two of the other 4 quilts in this pattern.....
A day well spent! Hope you all had a great day too!
