Project Quilting 12.3 & To-Do Tuesday

Complications kept me from shopping this past week. Hopefully I’ll make it out the door today to LQS. I also need to drop off my machine for a tune up and cleaning.

I’m taking part in the Project Quilting Season 12 Challenge. This Sunday the third challenge was announced. Virtual Vacation.

My family and I have been talking about doing a trip up to Northern Michigan – visiting light houses along Lake Michigan coast line, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Traverse City Botanical Gardens. The Gardens are of interest because I learned they have a Fairy Trail there. My granddaughter is at the age where she is all about fairies.

For PQ 12.3 Virtual Vacation Challenge I made a Fairy Pillow for my granddaughter.

Here is the backside of stitching completed for the pillow.

And the front -

I traced a coloring page for the fairy then stitched over the lines, filled in her wings. I added fused & stitched flowers and vine for her to be in a pretty garden.

Pinks and purples are granddaughter’s favorite colors right now so pink & purple it is for this 16″ pillow. All stitching is with Aurifil 50# threads. The Fossil Fern fabrics are left over from a quilt I made for her bed.

I bombed on my To-Do list. Hopefully this week will be much better.

Last Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Shop for fabric?  ✗ Change of weather brought on three days of migraine suffering. Snow was lovely!
  2. Start layout and stitching Clam Shells in place  ✗  decided to make one more row of clam shells

This Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Make more Clam Shells
  2. Since Janome is in for a cleaning, I’ll dig out the old Bernina and see how she is doing.

    Hi Sharon! Oh, I’m so sorry about the migraine. There were some really big storm systems traveling across the US, so I can see where it would have triggered them. What a fabulous pillow for your granddaughter. She’s more important that last week’s list – have you given it to her yet? I just know she is going to adore it. It’s filled with grandma and fairy love. Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne
