It's done..... Finished! My husband always says "I have seen you create so many quilts, but how many of them have you finished". Ha!! The story of my life. I am hoping to create a quilt for all those wonderful family members that have been dreaming for one this year for Christmas.
I should probly note that this quilt made for Sophia's reading chair is not my favorite. Or my best, I tried a few new things using variegated thread and hated it.
I loved how the back was though. The colors were so her. To be honest I did finish it, but still hated it deep down.
I saw this. Just 20 minutes after it was removed from the dryer, Sophie was on it with her books. Then again later wrapped up in it watching her movie.
so all in all, the trials were so worth it, and I learned a lot.
We have spent a lot of family time together this week, something that I have needed desperately. After all most of what I do is for my family, but I feel as if I am always to busy for them.
We saw Disney on ice this weekend... Can you tell she liked it ?
Next quilt on the books I haven't snapped a picture of yet but you can see the fabrics I choose today for a boys quilt. Not sure yet if I want all solids or to keep the prints in it. What do you think?
And I know you all love photos.... here is my block for the quilting bee "Bee Hexed in" Featuring a pattern from Tacha in the first issue of Fat Quarterly. All those colors I showed you earlier made this beautiful block.
Speaking of Fat Quarterly... did you see me in the holiday issue of the ezine? there are tone of free patterns in every issue but this issue was great for holiday gift ideas. If you do not subscribe I suggest you should start :)
I did the pattern from Rashinda's book I love patchwork, using Kate Spain's 12 day's of Christmas fabric.
Go pick up your issue now!
I hope you enjoyed all the great going on's sorry I been gone so long... What have you been up to ?
Holiday sewing already?....
I also would like to wish all my friends fying to Quilt Market this weekend to have a fun and safe flight.
