I had pieced and quilted this pillow top months ago, and finally decided it was time to finish it. I sewed up the back this weekend (forgot to take a photo of the back, darn it!), and hand stitched the binding this week while the girls were watching a puppet show.
I love how the white ties in with our white cabinets, and it really brightens up the space. The fabric is Michael Miller's pod posy line from a few years ago. We decorated our entire kitchen based on this fabric -- browns, blues, & yellows.
Still working on the Kaleidoscope Quilt.
I had planned to finish it today, but these crazy cats invaded my sewing space and I decided it would be more fun to play with them instead. :-)
Miraculously, I've been keeping up with the Summer Sampler Quilt Along.
I really am having fun with this one.
Much more fun than with the Farmer's Wife (NO progress on this at all this week!).
I'm using my stash of DS Quilts fabrics, with some coordinating Kona solids.
|Summer Sampler, Block 4|
I had the most fun with these this week:
thanks to this new Sleeping Bag pattern written by Florence at flossieteacakes.blogspot.com!
I plan to have a complete post dedicated to this, coming soon (maybe tomorrow)!
