Happy Friday again! These Sew and Tell Fridays make me realize how fast time goes by.
Now, restrain yourself from getting too excited over the complicated project I am showing you. I needed a little something for a last minute teacher's gift. My daughter helped me make these bookmarks.
Here's the flip side. Two will go to my daughter's teacher with a Barnes and Noble gift card. I'm going to keep two on hand with the extra gift card I bought for when I forget a gift emergencies.
Whew! For a while there, I thought the bookmarks were all I had to share today. But, I was able to find time to work on my Amish project. I finished adding the aqua and black stripes since the last time. The liberated part of the stripes was having different widths and a little bit of wavy going on. I'm not sure about the red border, but it is what it is.
Part of the Liberated Amish Get Together's challenge was to add letters or numbers somewhere in the quilt. After some pondering, I added the JMR since this is destined for Montana. It's our "brand" for all things Montana. It took me several tries to get the letters the way I wanted. So now my top is complete. Next I need to decide how to quilt it and what color to use for the binding. Any suggestions? Should I go with red again or another dark like the inner border?
Enjoy all the other Sew and Tell Friday posts. Have an amazing weekend!!!
