Family and Sewing

Dan's niece

What Megan does with the camera
Dan and his sister, who showed up this last week
adding the water around the volcano
 I decided to try a trick Liza Prior Lucy does, she calls it 'front basting' for lack of a better term.  She machine bastes the appliqué pieces down, then takes out a few stitches at a time as she hand appliqués.  Worked pretty well on the first section but I went with hand basting for the other 2 pieces.  Took about the same amount of time to hand baste 2 parts down as it took to machine stitch  the other one.
all 3 water parts complete with my pen lines
how they look on the piece...crappy photo tho.


  1. You have such a beautiful family. :o) And I'm lovin' watching this quilt come together. Your techniques (and results) are just so completely different from anything I do.

  2. You have me intrigued with the volcano...and the water...getting out my popcorn and getting ready for the show...
