Day Six Bowls With Borders Blog Hop


I had a lot of fun working on my Bowls with Borders project for this Blog Hop.   Today is my day to share my project with you!
Thank you to Regina who shared her pattern with us.  Thank you to Mdm Samm at Sew We Quilt and Carol at Just Let Me Quilt for organizing this hop.

After receiving the pattern in my email I gathered my fabrics.


I then began paper piecing which is pretty new for me.


Three bowls stacked, should I make a small stack?



 
A few more.

Up to fourteen bowls here and I decided to add a few more. 
 I stopped when I had eighteen bowls.


With an ice cream sundae and a cherry on top.


I knew that I was going to use some hand embroidery in this project but was not sure what I was going to do until I was inspired by two of my co-workers to add ice cream with a cherry on top.



I changed the bottom strip because the blue I had used seemed to blend in too much.  
This adventure in paper piecing and creating my own project has been great fun!

  3. Sherry, that is certainly a very wonderful stack of bowls you have made. I love it and the cream with the berry is so cute. I love your stack of bowls and the fabric you have chosen.
    And I admit it is hard to stop sewing the bowls. My day is Monday and you will then find out my difficulties to stop sewing.
