Sometimes people go on vacation and relax by the pool, sight see, eat the best food, perhaps even read a book. Other people go on vacation and take their sewing machine on the airplane. Once they are at their vacation spot they sit at their sewing machine and sew for ten hours a day. These people usually only get up to go to the bathroom and get some food. Hmmm...I wonder what type of person mom was on her last trip to Mt Hood?
This weekend Jeff and Heidi will be married. Yay!!! These two are so cute. I really don't think I have ever met a couple that was so in love and twitterpated with each other. I made this quilt as their wedding present, but I was so excited I couldn't wait to give it to them at the reception. So, instead I suprised them a couple of days ago and they were so lovely.
This pattern is called "Storm at Sea", and this is my second time making this quilt. I do absolutely love this quilt with its 4,000 plus pieces. When I started this quilt I really didn't have anyone in mind to make it for, but by the time I was done, I knew it was going to live with Jeff. I love how it turned out with the blues and greens.
Did you seriously think I was talking about myself???? LOL, no... not me. My client is due in a couple of weeks. I just finished making her a crib skirt and bumper pads (pics to come soon). She is moving her older daughter to another room and wanted some new bedding. She found this great bird fabric on Etsy. I quilted the leaves and flowers found on the fabric.
Yeah, you read the title right. My mom is a stripper. She just started this summer, but she is already really good!! (Get your mind out of the gutter!) Mom started to make strip quilts out of jelly rolls this summer and her quilts have been so cute. She decided to be super proactive and make all eleven (ELEVEN) grandkids a strip quilt for Christmas. She has finished all of the tops and now she needs to figure out Camille the quilting machine. These are pics of her first grandchild quilt. Ten more installments to come!
Strip quilts are so fun and easy to make!! This quilt is made with two Moda jelly rolls. Unroll the pack and sew! The F at the bottom really makes it personal. Penney made this quilt for my nephew Fox, and he loves it. If quilting seems scary, start with a jelly roll strip quilt.
