There is nothing I like better than setting the last stitch in a binding. Tying the knot and breathing a sigh of accomplishment and, lets be honest, relief. Another quilt completed!
This one is for my partner in Doll Quilt Swap 13 on Flickr. It was my first DQS and I quite enjoyed myself. There is so much inspiration in the gallery, and everyone’s tastes are so different. I tried to figure out which one was mine, but since I didn’t mention Owls this time around the one I thought might be it might not be and if its not then I have no clue!
My partner mentioned she likes stars, and the main block in her mosaic was a paper pieced star with a black text background.( I do not have any text fabric in my stash at all. I didn’t like it at first but now that I see what people are doing with it I kinda get it and its growing on me. )
This is one of my new favorite color combos. I had a couple Bee members who wanted the teal/orange colors, and then I found a Bloggers Choice bundle at Pink Castle Fabrics on Black Friday that I fell in love with. There is some Flea Market Fancy and coordinating solids and blenders. AND to go really out of my comfort zone, I quilted it using two different colors of threads and NOT in the ditch! Ha! Take that scaredy-brain! I call it Supernova. Big name for a little quilt. It is 18″ square. I get to show it off at the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild meeting tomorrow night. Yay! I get to oogle quilts and eat goodies while hubby gets to stay home and try to get a teaspoon of medicine down a 10 month old throat. Have fun honey!
And now for an exciting Announcement!
I will be hosting a Giveaway!! Starting on Thursday night, so your gonna want to tell all your friends and come back Thursday evening for all the details.
