More "Quilties"

For those of you who are visiting from Lily's Quilts welcome. My name is Sandie, and I have been blogging for only 2 months. So please look around , it is my hope you will enjoy my blog home.!!       Here are some more of my art journal quilties. I'm posting these quilties because I threw out my upper back, and can not sew. :(:(    I feel like my left arm has been removed!! I have sewn for a couple of hours a day for over 25 years!!!! What do people do who don't sew??? Any way, until my back comes (back) on line, I will post the quilties that I have done up to this point in the year. I hope you enjoy!!!!  
I love this quiltie!!!       All of these quilties are approximately  4x6 inches or smaller. Some of them are as small as 2x2. I made them to fit what I was working with, or the mood I was in at the time :):)


The background on this quiltie, is a piece of test fabric for my sewing machine. You know when you start a new sewing project and you want to test your stitches? Most people throw those away. Not me!! I put yo-yo's on top and a made a quiltie ::):):)



Last one for this post. I wanted to do the year, so I would know when this art quilt was made. !! I'm having a super time doing these quilties. :):) Until next post.!!

I do sympathize with you - I have neck and shoulder problems which really restrict the amount of time I spend sewing and knitting. It does tend to make me a bit twitchy sometimes!

Hi Sandie, I found you over at Lily's. Those quilties are just adorable (especially the kitty with the house!) Everything else looks great too. Hope to hear from you.

Great quilties (Great name - your invention?) I have been making some small bits and pieces lately and love that they are relatively quick and you can make a big impact with a small item! I agree with the Ms Hocking - these would be a great idea for a swap!
- Anyone else out there interested?

Hi Sandie! Wow love all the colours you're using, they are right up my alley! Hope your back is on the mend, it is awful not being able to sew and being restricted. I had tennis elbow earlier this year and it was dreadful. Thanks for visiting my blog! I'll be back to visit you! Danielle x

Hope you feel better soon and can get back to sewing soon. I am so jealous of your sewing room and love your quilt as you go - the circle quilting looks amazing.
