She said it was kind of wild. LOL Oh what he must think of my type of quilts…LOL All of mine are wild. hehe
We mixed back & forth lines in two directions and bubbles within bubbles to compliment it.
I love the texture and what helps it pop a bit more is the flannel backing. you can see the designs so well…but its’ also so comfy. I love flannel I use my flannel Grinch quilt all of the time when I watch tv. You just have to take extra precautions when using flannel. washing it ahead of time ect. Flannel shrinks quite a bit more than cotton.
Thanks Valerie! Always a pleasure working with you! Blessings
Well as my Pastor said on Easter Sunday “without Christmas there would be no Easter” Seasoned Christians know this. Yet Christmas seems to be a much bigger holiday than Easter. Easter doesn’t seem as important to the world. Everything was open ..even in our small conservative town. That seemed strange to me.
My pastor gave a a great sermon. It wasn’t the typical resurrection story. He skimmed through the whole bible and weaved everything together. It was a beautiful sermon. One of the best Easter Sermons I have heard…honestly.
I had a rough day. I think it’s just a culmination of lots of things. I don’t want to complain about it all. But I boycotted my family on that day….and I sewed my heart away. I worked on Christmas projects. I made this cute little Christmas Present quilt:
I also made a Christmas runner and cut out a few more projects. So I can just sew when I have a moment here & there. I have work to do…..I have house stuff to catch up on….and paperwork. Sometimes I just have to zone out and work on something that takes me away. I would buy some calgon to take me away…but somehow..even though we have 2 bathrooms…..I can’t ever take a bath in peace without someone needing something. I can talk & sew at the same time.
Things started calming down that night. I think teenage years are just plain tough. No matter how you handle them.
But I a just going to keep looking up, trudging through and hopefully survive….no matter what I will have a smile in the end. It’s either because it’s over or because I lived …LOL. But a smile is a smile…right?
Kathy is also a newer quilter. I quilted for her last fall for a wedding quilt…and now she has a grandbaby coming any day. YAY!
I am assuming the baby a granddaughter?……:)
I quilted flowers and leaves….it just fit with the theme. Kathy made it all from flannels and pretty colors. I love baby quilts. Always represents new life. new beginnings. New relationships…and a journey ahead. Beautiful.
Thanks Kathy! Always a pleasure working with you! See ya in a few!
Julie made another beautiful quilt. She is a fairly new quilter but also very prolific.
I think the quilting bug has bitten.
I think this is a fabulous quilt…I am guessing it’s a layer cake & Charm quilt. You layer a charm in the middle of a layer cake…sew around the edges and then slice it on both diagonals, shuffle them and sew them back into hour glass type blocks. Genius!
She added sashings and a couple of borders. I love the Patriotic -Americana fabrics. always a good combo.
I quilted stars & loops on the inside and framed it all in with a feather…..very classic type feeling.
