So next Monday the moving coordinator is coming by to access our house and how much we will be shipping. Now I call her a moving coordinator but I am sure she has a much fancier name...just like me, I call myself a Home and Living Assistant when in reality I am just a kept woman. Gotta love those fancy names....so I don't know her fancy name...sue me!
Anyways back to the post.... We get to send a small load of items that will substain a home until all our house goods arrive (meaning our storage as well...whoohoooo Christmas all over again).
So...I am thinking of sending these ahead with Daddy Pfaff or should it be Mr. Pfaff? I will be close to batting and maybe I can finish all 14 of these quilt tops? Wouldn't that be awesome? So yep...that is what I am a gonna do (still a Texas girl, can't take that out of me).
So while I am thinking of what to put in the small shipping....I am doing this.
You make a quilt of 5" inch rows....if I were to do this again, I would make this first step real big because you see the finished results of mine....and I did seven rows by nine. Here is the ruler you use to cut the first part up. Then you sew the cut pieces up in the order they are cut....and when you sew them....your neighbors will hear your squeal of delight when you see it come together.
You do get alot of scraps but I made these.....
Will get my trusty Go out to make 2 1/2 inch squares...
This is all that is left...not too bad.
Just got a call from my husband and we may be leaving for a house hunting trip come next week (normally I would be kicking and screaming and saying...I am not getting on that plane but I am excited to go). Soooooooooooooooo I have alot to do between now and next Thursday and I don't need to be playing with this...I have that vynl I want to play with....
So here is the deal...you want this little quilt...along with some 2" rows and 2 1/2 inch squares above to make you a cute little quilt, runner or table topper....just comment.
I will even throw in this cute cosmetic bag I got at Hilo Hattie's that matches...don't we all love matching?
Now I am going to tell you all a shocker...I love working with bright fabrics but I don't really like bright fabrics in my home (ooooooohhhhh no Barb...that can't be) but it is... I am more of an earth toned kind of person with splashes of color here and there but not too much.
