It was a very satisfying weekend of sewing, even though there was much busyness going on that was totally unrelated to sewing and quilting. People do have to buy groceries, do laundry and other things on the weekend besides sewing, I suppose.
I had such a good time making the ECU pillow case for Friday Night Sew In that I didn't want the fun to end, so I pulled out some scraps left from making this quilt for my grandson a couple of years ago,
Made a matching pillowcase,
With rickrack trim,
And bought one of these pillows from Dollar General to go inside the pillowcase. I tried to convince my grandson that sleeping with this special pillow and pillow case would make him brave when he wakes up in the middle of the night. Apparently he doesn't share my belief in the magic of scraps, but he liked the pillow and pillow case anyway.
The picnic quilt sandwich is ready for pinning on the sewing room floor. This will be my project for the next couple of nights and then on to machine quilting what I hope to be many different designs.
We delivered the quilted walker caddy to our housebound friend who was very pleased with it. It looked very neat and fit securely on the font bar of the walker with velcro.
Using fabric scraps to make useful gifts for others is an important part of satisfaction in sewing for me. Each of these three projects were made with scraps and I feel they will be useful to the persons who receive them. Its a very special gift when it is sewn with love and the magic of a few scraps.
