Quilts I brought to finish at the retreat and Texture Magic

Quilts I brought to finish at the retreat and
Texture Magic
I should of posted these pictures a few days ago, but at the retreat we decided to each make a quilt and donate them to a Children's Home. We selected an easy pattern and one of the ladies in our bee is taking the time to quilt them for us. Binding will be done on Thursday and maybe I can post some pictures. So time does fly when girl's are having fun.
Here are a couple of quilts, I know I've showed pieces of them, but I did get to put them together at the quilt retreat. The first one (pictured above) is a baby quilt that really needs to be finished. I have a problem wanting to move on to new projects.

The one below still needs one more small border. It will be for a table. Love red and yellow.

Now this is a new product,Texture Magic from Superior Threads and I'm using it on my grand baby's outfit for school. A backpack to match will have her set for the day. I'm just posting a peek and will work on these two projects the rest of the week.


Texture Magic is so much fun to work with. If you go to Moda Bake Shop , Kim made a pillow using it. So cute!!! I have Texture Magic in my shop @ Calamity Jane's Cottage . Come on back for finished projects.



Keep Stitchen'

A friend was going to the quilt show at Hershey and picked up some Texture Magic for me....I may get it from her today....can't wait to try it....seems like fun. Any suggestions or advice since you have already worked with it? Love the things you showed today on your blog.

Gorgeous quilts, The more I see of quilts with stitchery on them, the more I love them.

Your granddaughter's dress is super, Bonnie...especially the colors.

Thanks for sharing.

Lots of fun projects! How fantastic to donate quilts. I think we can make the world a happier place, one quilt at a time.

Great post! And the Texture Magic dress is going to be sooooo cute! I can hardly wait to see the finished project.
I'm so glad you are offering it through your store. Keep us the great work!

I'm dying to try that Texture Magic myself. I think it has so much potential.

Love the embroidery on the quilt too!

Cute quilts, Bonnie - I know what you mean about wanting to move on to the next project, tho! I have to force myself to persevere! The dress is absolutely adorable - do we get to see her wearing it?

I really love the bodice on the dress you're making. It makes it extra special. I have a dress I'm making for my grandaughter and I'm going to use Texture Magic on the bodice too. I'll post about it when I get it done.

What an interesting effect on the yoke using the Texture Magic. Love your quilts, especially the one with the embroidery.

Bonnie I love the Texture Magic - haven't seen it before but I bet I see it a lot in the months to come. The jumper and purse are awesome - she's bound to love it. blessings, marlene
