Midweek Makers #130

Hello, and welcome to Midweek Makers for another week of sharing. 
Fourth of July is just around the corner, and once again, I'm working on a red/white/blue project,

red white and blue project

with precision stars for applique. Tracing and cutting with a ruler really makes them crisp!

Some of you got to see this at the guild meeting the other night - the rest of you have to wait till Friday. And, yes, there will be a pattern, as this is really quick and easy to put together.

Now for last week! Once again, there were a bunch of cute animals shown - let's recap.

From Laughing Gas Quilts, there's Shoo Fly Rosie,


from Skalabara Quilts, this unicorn,

                                            rainbow unicorn 1 - skalabara quilts

and from Made by Marney, this fawn,


and who can't resist this cute dog fabric jumper from Sticking and Stitching?

  1. a lot of cute animal quilts you show - I've got tons of things in the works and getting an antique sewing machine up and running also

  2. Good Morning Susan!
    Ooh, this red, white and blue project looks like fun. Those crisp points on the appliqué stars look great, and I love how your colors match up so perfectly in the seam. I'll be back on Friday to see this reveal. Happy Wednesday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I love the idea of using a ruler for applique with straight lines. It makes such a difference! I also have a separate rotary cutter that I only use when going through paper, and I like to cut the pieces out with the straight edge, also.

  4. I've never thought to use a ruler or cutter to make those straight lines straighter. I need to invest in a light box. Which one do you use?

  5. Susan, thanks for featuring my unicorn, you made my day!

  6. Applique, I love applique. Looking forward to seeing more!

  7. I' eager to see your quilt! Thank you for the ruler tip! :)


Thank you so much for just made my day!
