First Collar & First Quilt

Hello! This is the first collar that I made. It is embroidery on the Viking sewing machine. All done by machine. It is tricky to do, because the placement of everything has to be just right.
The picture below is my very first quilt I ever did. The group that I belonged to made baby quilts for the local hospital. This was made for them. It is not very good but, they took it happily. I have a real problem with straight as you can see. I was doing a lot better last June with the baby quilt I pieced in June, that I don't have quilted yet, because of the fall, on July First. I thank-you for coming to see my blog. I really appreciate your friendship and your following along with my life. Please come again soon and if you are not a follower, please push my follow button. Thank-you! See you again soon.

  2. Hi Fern....I'm truly in amazed at the embroidery abilities on your sewing machine and the quilt is just beautiful...babies don't mind crooked but they do love all the lovely colors!!I expect your Viking machine is very complicated to learn to use. You are very talented.

  3. Your Quilt is Lovely! We like the bright colors, and the variety of fabrics. Babies are very tactile, and I'd bet they loved it.


  4. Fern,

    You are such a talented and sweet lady.

    I admire your skills. I cannot cook or sew.

  5. Hey Fern,

    Just catching up with you and your stories. I just read about your special red dress. Isn't it funny how certain things stand out from others in our memory.

    I don't think I have the patience to make something as intricate as your beautiful collar!

  6. Hi Fern good to hear from you, Happy and Bambi.
    Toto was indeed a very small dog with a great big attitude. He was such fun though.
