.I haven't counted how many I have done in the last two months but there have been quite a few.
I recently got an order for this octopus and they wanted the pink and brown polka dots like the one they saw.
Thanks heavens I know where to get more fabric.
I had enough but I was in my room late one night and was prepping this octopus
and was able to maneuver the octopus on the pink polka dot scraps to where it would work.
I was sooooooooooooooooooooooo excited that I wouldn't have to go and buy new fabric.
Well...maybe it was the late hour,
Maybe it was the fact that my light bulbs were out over head
and I was working by a lamp across the room.
What ever the reason.
I fused the octopus on the right side of the fabric.
If I were a cursing woman, you would have been able to hear some not so nice words...but since I am silent in that area I just called myself all kinds of names (don't know which is worse).
So...the next morning I make my way to the fabric store to buy another yard.
Other than that, this octopus went together like a breeze.
I don't think I have ever had a quilt go together so effortlessly. It was a pleasure.
Maybe it was because I did it in between a project I am doing....have been doing...seems like I have been working on this one project forever and can't wait to show you.
Anyways, when I would get bored....I would pull out the octopus...and work...put it away until it was needed to chase away the monotonous routine....
The one receiving this is Samoan so I used some of my Samoan fabrics for the back.
UMMMMM Ummmmmmm stinking GOOD!!!
Just a plug for this octopus pattern, if you would like to purchase it, just email me.
Darling baby quilt! Love, love the pink polka dots!!
Adorable! Absolutely adorable!
I can imagine the names you called yourself, Barb. Grrr. LOVE the backing fabric!!!
Your Octopus looks wonderful in that dotty fabric. I love it.
I have to laugh because I have fused the right side (which is the WRONG way to fuse.) Your finish looks great.
I have always loved this pattern but I think this is the best one you have ever made...I just love this color combo! Super cute and the backing is perfect..they will love it!
So, so cute! blessings, marlene
I love the Samoan fabric on the back.
Really cute , I am waiting to see the front of the quilt you are working on but I love the back.
