is her name…. Doesn’t she scream Summer? She was also super easy!
Just when you guys thought I had given up sewing! Just kidding.
I made her to welcome Lentil’s cousin who is due about the same time as Lentil. No, I have not yet made poor Lentil a quilt but she does have a lifetime to enjoy mama made…. this is what I tell myself to ease the guilt.
I will be delivering this to the machine quilter’s house today after our trip to the baby doc. I hope to have it back by next week to bind it and get it in the mail.
I borrowed my inspiration from Oh, Fransson who I think is brilliant but I made several changes along the way. Most of this fabric has been in my stash since the beginning. Pretty impressive, I did not go to the fabric store at all. I decided to make a quilt and wend down to the studio and made one with what I had on hand…imagine that!
Sorry for the crappy photos…at least I am blogging again!
But this Crazy girl got it done!!!!!
I finally finished this quilt that has been languishing in the UFO bin for ever….
Seriously all it lacked was binding. I have no idea why it took me so long to complete but it was a good project to work on today since I am hopped up on cold medicine and needed something to use all my nervous energy on.
Big plus…it covers up this ugly old couch. I need to be on the look out for a white denim slip cover since the couch while ugly is in great shape.
No pattern, just made it up as I went. I love these Amy Butler Daisy Chain fabrics. When it first came out I was like “meh’ whatever…now I want a whole bolt of the blue fabric I used for sashing.
Nothing really fancy but super functional.
I wanted to take some nice pictures outside however it refused to quit raining in Central Wisconsin….blah
2 down, 26 left to go…I am just kidding.
This quilt is incorporating the Blue Star Blocks I pieced here. Now to finish the purple set.
The color combo is in honor of the recipient. These are her favorite colors.
The hard part is going to be waiting until Christmas to give it to her.
Just in time for fall…..
Someone will get this Turning Twenty Again quilt for Christmas
Doesn’t this look like the perfect spot for you and your lover to have a Picnic with Mother Nature.
I half expect to find a couple of mischievous wood nymphs taking an afternoon nap.
It is indeed quilted with a leaf pattern.
I love the magic the afternoon sun casts on ordinary things
Here is the Doll Quilt I made for my partner over at Sewing Mamas
I am very please with the way it turned out and hopes she likes it. She said she liked feminine, romantic colors.
Emily is holding it up but desprately trying to stay out of the photo as she has color on her hair and looks a mess. It was nearly impossible to get a decent pictures. I think we need photo props in the sewing studio but we are running out of room.
And while not yet perfect I am improving on my binding. I have to work on it as it is the part I like the least…..
for my star blocks that is.
This is block 12. One more to go. Then I make the sashing blocks and sandwich it up!
and Blue: I used some of the sea shell fabric Michael picked out for his quilt b/c Michael and Becca are such good friends.
I have decided to have both of these quilted on a long arm. I have no desire to attempt to quilt 2 queen sized quilts and it is way to much to pawn off on Christin.
I will be so happy when they are done. Yea for making Christmas gifts early!
