I finished my mom's quilt before Friday, but I didn't take pictures of it until later.
Here it is before washing. (I didn't take any pics post washing for crinkly goodness, but I have already packed it up to come to my parents with me.)
The handquilting was really time consuming. I'm not sure I'll be doing it again soon.
I finished my Charmed Prints quilt.
Originally, it had a pink border (the pink I used for the binding).
Unfortunately, I did the math wrong somewhere and the piece of flannel I had to use wasn't wide enough. (It was long enough, but not in both directions.) So, I took off the pink border and used it for binding.)
It's going to a best friend from college who has had a hard year. I wanted to make her a lovey quilt...so if she's having a bad day, she can snuggle up to it with chocolate or Chinese food. It will also act as a visual cue for her sweet hubby to give her a big cuddle.
I hope she likes it.
I finished my string blocks for Val over at PinkPlease! for her Heroes quilt.
I made a super secret present for Trollop (my best girlfriend).
I have to check and see if she's been reading this blog before I post pictures.
Needless to say, I practiced my free motion in a really random and awesome manner.
Pics will be forthcoming once I check in with her.
I am incredibly (ridiculously) proud of solving a design challenge.
It involved bacon. I'll leave it at that for the moment.
I have to finish my pouch for the giveaway and will finish my quilts for kids blocks tonight.
I'm 2 blocks behind in my skill builder, but I'm not a huge applique fan, so I'm not sure if I'll do them. The circle one is bringing back bad flashbacks to a quilt block I did for a school bee.
Is it weird that I just realized that most of my friends don't read this? Do y'all live in the quilting closet or do all your BFFs read your blogs?
