A huge thank you to those who left warm, loved-filled comments on my ‘last post. Your words ment the world to me. I hope you and everyone out there had a wonderful holiday weekend.
Daddy and Kira got to spend lots of quality time together which freed me up to spend some quality time in the sewing room (and Joann’s, and Micheals, and Barnes and Noble and the park (to work out with my personal trainer sister, she refuses to let me be still for too long and I’m grateful to her for it). Here’s how I spent the weekend.
I finished up another quilt. I’ve had it and another one sitting around for way to long. Now I can finally sent them out into the world to be played, puked and loved on by two adorable little babes. One reason I had them so long was to do a compare and contrast between the two. Same pattern, different quilting styles.
I love the yellow polka dot binding, it just screams “happy”!!
And here’s Maggie’s quilt (you remember this one). Same pattern but different quilting.
The meandering pattern on Hudson’s quilt actually made it about 1 1/2 to 2 inches smaller than Maggie’s. If I’d stuck with plan A it would have been even smaller. I was going to use a pebbling pattern but it just didn’t look good enough for a quilt that was intended as a gift.
Definitely more practice…oh the burden…(hee hee).
The rainy, cool days this weekend served me well.
They may have been a bit of a disappointment for some but not for me.
Now to get these in the mail!
