Monday Finishes!


I hope all of you who are in the path of the storm, stay safe and are prepared in case the power goes out. I thought I would post early, just in case. We have a generator, but it doesn't power the heater, so I hope we don't lose power for too long.

A friend send me some quilted pieces that she didn't want so I decided to add a border to one. Since it was already quilted, I couldn't do a real border, so I just added a small edge to border it. I think it needs something though, maybe a saying, or some birds, what do you think?

I lightened it up a bit, but the shades are much darker. I also need to press down the edges, but will wait until I decide what to add to the piece.



If you were wondering what else you can do with my designs, Karen made a beautiful Pin keep with hers. I love the wool colors in her piece and it is a nice idea for small or larger wool projects or you could make a table runner by adding the ducks to the end of the piece, with the star in the middle.

Beautiful Monday finishes, Deb! Oh how I wish we would have gotten some of that winter storm here in Michigan....I love a good blizzard..as long as I don't have to travel in it!

OMG, I love the off-kilter design of the basket quilted piece! The pin keep idea and results are perfect. Enjoyed both designs.

I like the wonky baskets just the way they are!
Fun little pinkeep.
I hope you don't lose power. We only got a couple inches of snow - a few less than were predicted. That's okay by me!
Hugs :)

what a great version of your wonderful design.

Karen said...

I like the basket quilt. Must be a Jan Patek design.

Tammy said...

I would suggest you add some flowers coming out of the baskets. Something primitive of course. Otherwise, I love it.

What a great gift! Love it!
Maybe a crow or some sunflowers on it?
Hope to see what you do with it!

Hope you stay safe Debbie. Since the fire our generator powers more than it used to....so we can be pretty comfortable.....we have lights in most rooms, heat, well works for water, and I can cook.

Maybe a bird with a sprig of berries? Maybe a flower instead of the sprig? I do like the basket design.

Anna said...

I would put some dog bones for Bean in that basket!
