Lush Friday show and tell. Great inspiration!
The blocks for Hayden's Bug Jar Quilt are all embroidered and framed. If you look closely you can see that each jar has vinyl to represent the glass. Click on the photo to enlarge it. I love the bright colors for the whimsical embroidered bugs. The first block shows the sashing. There will be another border and probably piping next to the binding. Hayden (my great nephew) is 3, so I think he will appreciate the bright colors and funny bugs. My favorite part of quilting is watching it all come together. See, all the mess below is worth it. I have most of the thread put away and I am working on the fabric stash!

I just thought it would give everyone a giggle to see my mess in all its glory! I am oh so glad I have a door to my sewing room especially when my mother comes to visit. LOL Hope you have a good giggle on me!
Good news...I start my new job on August 16 so I still have time to finish my nephews quilt. I will be working in the Radiology Nursing Unit per diem. I will be monitoring patients and giving sedation/pain meds while they have procedures done. Thanks for wishing me luck getting this job. It will stimulate my brain some I am sure. And, I'll have more money to buy more fabric!!!
p.s. I am much tidier and organized at work, I promise.

I just finished a new bag for myself. It is the "Easy on the Back Bag" by Jenny Raymond. It wasn't the easiest bag to make but I really like the finished product. I made it out of a batik. It really is more purple than blue and has green mixed in. Some of my favorite colors. Now to go add my stuff!
