I haven't gotten a ton of sewing done lately because I got it in my head to clean and rearrange my sewing room. It would have been OK, if I hadn't gotten into the closet...I can't believe how much stuff I have! I did take two pieces of fabric of questionable material to Goodwill, but here's the problem. While at Goodwill, I thought I'd just peek around for some more pillowcases for more shopping totes. Yikes! I walked out of there with eight of them! (It's a sickness, isn't it, this fabric addiction of mine. I felt like a hoarder bringing fabric out of corners where I didn't even know it resided yesterday. And then I come home with MORE!)
|(there's only 7 shown, but that's because there are two of the solid pink pillowcases)|
|although now that I look at it, I should probably add some white on the two sides, just for balance|
Here's a question - how do you quilt a top with embroidery on it? I'd love to finish up this Birdie Stitches quilt, but I am stumped. The embroidered bits are about 8" square. It seems like sewing over them would mess up the embroidery, but isn't that too big a space to leave un-quilted? Help! All suggestions are welcome.
