so, i think for my next blog, i'll create a stats page. i'm thinking of including stuff like: number of quilts made, number bound, number still need binding, number i'm keeping, number i'm selling...we'll see how the numbers stack up!
for now, pictures of the QUOTE QUILT! yeaaaaa, i have been planning this one for a while and it's finally done (except for the hand binding...mom)
it was starting to be a bit too monotone for me, so i had to add the color along the edges. the back was a pre-meditated purchase from Target online.
i WON'T be selling this one...sorry lt. pookie. it's just way too personal for me. i added about 15 of my favorite quotes, using 200 count white cotton you can send through your home printer. i love the idea of making wishes on dandelions, so i just had to add that as well...
ode to the eighties:
this one didn't start out as such; but, with the beautifully bright colors and abstract designs of a kaffe fassett jelly roll...well, see for yourself
the quilt pattern is called "garden trellis." i was worried about matching all these points; but, they actually came together quite easily! the border fabric is nicey jane by heather bailey and the binding (as yet to be hand stitched...mom) is part of the garden party line by anna maria horner.
the back is a cuddly, fuzzy, sweet dreams in lilac minke fabric.
i recommend it to all who love colorful images, colorful language and colorful imaginations!
