Welcome !

Welcome to Made Down South! Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm up to. This blog serves as my review of projects accomplished since I have way too many that are halfway done. I also tend to have so many urgent ideas where I simply have stop all else to work on the newest thing. So, this blog will show all the ideas that actually get made into stuff! Some of that stuff is available for sale at our etsy shop, Down South Designs.

Progress: Memory block quilt blocks

My friend, J, and I have been trying to get our improv groove on and make these memory clothing blocks. It's a project that my church group of sewists at the Mustard Seed is doing for a local family who recently lost a loved one. 

We stabilized each section of clothing fabric so that we could combine different textures and have success!  

The plan is for these 12 1/2" blocks to be placed into shadow box frames with personal embellishments attached.  I think it's a great idea and I can't wait to see the final outcome!

I will be posting at Freshly Pieced this week
