Of course I've been sewing too, can't help it! We've actually been so busy in so many ways, and I haven't taken the time to blog. But I decided that if I waited till I had time, I'd never get it done! So hopefully there's more to come shortly, but till then here's a few recent photos I love.
Doesn't he look like a pro? This was at the Walker's house, guess we'll have to find him one!
I'd better get to bed, I need to get up in 6 hours!
But I did finish Beth's striped challenge quilt, all in a day! I thought and thought about it for days, was intending to use sleeves cut from Tyler's shirts, then decided to just do a small one to get it done with and try something bigger later. I've been working very hard at doing things I say I will, and this was supposed to be done by September, I believe.
The rule was that you had to use lots of striped fabric.
I learned that stripes are great for binding, but for quilt tops I prefer them to be mixed with lots of solids, other prints, etc. More as an accent. (the back)
The back is a "candy" flannel, and front is pieced from part of a Moda Jelly Roll (Quilt Diva) that Marlene gave me. I was determined to not buy anything for this project, and it worked! Breanna is very pleased with the results, perfect for dollies. =)
The rest will have to come later, what have you been working on?
