Journal Quilt

If you stopped by to see my Pets on Quilts Show, please scroll down to yesterday's post or click here.  And if you can, please leave a comment.  Mimi loves to hear from everyone, especially when they say nice things about her.  Like that she is cute, for example.  Oh Mimi!  You're so vain!

Nothing has been happening on the quilting front these days.  I got my sewing machine back, but it is still giving me some problems.  Sometimes it doesn't pick up the bottom thread and then the seam just opens up and falls apart.  But I did make this little Journal Quilt.  It measures a mere 8in. by 11in.  I used it to try out my machine, so don't look too closely.

This quilt is based on the book of Calendar Quilts by Kim Shaefer.  I don't have the book yet, but I loved her little quilt for June.  So I sort of did my own interpretation of it.  It feels more like a journal quilt for July or August.

And here is another mystery vine that grew in my garden beside the pumpkin vine.  I think the squirrels are responsible for this one too.  But that's okay.  I love this blue morning glory.  This is the first bud to open.

Wonderful!! I'm in the process of making this same wallhanging! Isn't machine appliqueing around those little ant legs tedious??? But how rewarding when they are completed. Yours looks wonderful!

Your journal quilt just yells 'summer'. Your interpretation is great.

I have had a long time love for morning glories but they do spread and take over so watch out.

Great summer wallhanging.

Great summer journal quilt, that watermelon looks good enough to eat :-). Love that colour of the morning glory.

I'm sorry to hear that your sewing machine still isn't working the way it should. That has to be very frustrating especially since this time the person was suppose to have a lot of Bernina experience. They do say 3rd time is the charm, but it's finding that 3rd person, good luck.
