It seems all it has been doing here is raining. We finally got a few days of sunshine but it rained last night and I hear it is going to rain tomorrow.
So I took advantage of the sunshine by doing a photo shoot with this quilt.
The quilt doesn't even have a name. The fabrics I used were Island Batik 5" strips. I decided to do something different and use Aurifil #2530 for the blanket stitching around the flowers. When I say different, well, only one petal matched this thread but I think it turned out wonderfully.
I only used five 5" strips. Two petals were out of some scraps I had left over but the thing that I so love is getting something so simple and cute practically out of nothing but gorgeous Island Batik fabrics.
What was left over from cutting the petals out I used to make the binding.
Why did I make this quilt when I have so many other things to be doing?
All I can do is throw up my hands and say "I DON'T KNOW!"
I just had an idea, and just went for it.
This next quilt is for a fund raiser that I am having at my house, the reason is on the QT so I can't disclose the purpose, just know it is a worthy cause.
This little quilt was made with Island Batik 10" squares.
Diary of a Quilter is where I got the pattern for this quilt.
Trust me when I say, this takes no time at all to make.
If you are in a hurry and need a gift, this will do it.
This quilt had been draped on my quilting frame (quilting frame is my catch all for all projects that are not done). For about a month I kept saying that I need to sandwich it and quilt it. So I finally went to it on Friday and low and behold it was already sandwiched and ready to quilt. I thought....hummmmm If I had remembered that part was done, I would have had it quilted by now. Since when am I prone to forgetting?
Life seems to just pass me by. I don't know where February went and now March is running away as fast as time will allow. I have had some time in my sewing room this month and have so loved it.
I hope that you too will find time to spend in your sewing room, good for a quilters soul.
