I Did It!
I finished my Vintage-y Rail Fence queen sized quilt. I used several bits of Bunny Hill Designs mixed in with some fabrics I had and others whose names I don’t remember (sorry!).
This is a custom order for a FABULOUS gal pal of mine for a gift for one of her equally fabulous gal pals.
|Work in progress; the layout process. Too bad these pics don’t do the colours justice|
|These colours are gorgeous; pinks, browns, creams, golds and blues|
|I FMQ’d in a big swirly pattern, bordered it with a nice print, backed it with a heavyweight cotton, white|
|And finished it off with caramel coloured binding!|
Sewed on my BRAND NEW Janome QDC 4030 which I’m LOVING….this is probably the best quilt I’ve ever done…straight, even, edged….THANKS, Santa…it’s PERFECT!
I’ve been kinda stalled on a lot of projects; INCLUDING getting really good pics up of all the baby quilts I did for the craft show, and some other pics of the various Christmas projects – little drawstring bags and my all time fav – adult Onesie Pyjamas…oh yeah. Hysterical. So awesome though…totally worth the cost! Stalled cuz I have a Very Painful tooth …ouchie…yeah it needs a (shudder) root canal but first the meds…whee! Anyway. It’s hard to sew with a throbbing molar.
Hopefully more sewing to come cuz I still have ONE MORE quilt to make…then…maybe I’ll catch up on some personal UFOS. My scrap bin runneth over; and the Quilt Cave is still a disaster from the Christmas chaos.
Let’s see; these are my WIPS:
Clean the Cave
Organize my fabrics & scraps
Purple Queen Quilt – to start
Finish MY rail fence – needs to be fixed and quilted
Take better pics of finished quilts
Have a great week everyone, I hope yours is happy and bright!
