Well, as the Kohl's commercial reminded me this evening there are only twelve
Here's the first - a really pretty modern quilt based on a design in the most recent Quilty magazine, I think. It was really easy but I was surely glad I had a design wall! I had to do some figuring to make it larger - the one in the magazine is only 47" square and this one is 60" square, so it's not an exact copy but it's close. Minimal straight line quilting finished it off. This quilt is now living with my husband's boss and his wife!
And this gorgeous quilt is based on this picture of what I believe was a mini-quilt. It involved a lot of math and finger-crossing that it would work, but I'm so pleased with the result! It's got lots of my carefully hoarded Grunge fabrics in it, plus some pretty batiks and lots of Kona cotton, in Bone, if I remember correctly.
The color's truer in the first picture, but you can see the miles and miles of straight line quilting in this quilt here. All of the Kona is straight-line quilted in 1/4 inch lines. It gives it such great texture - I kept petting it right up until the time I put it in the gift bag! This quilt was gifted to my husband's assistant, who is pretty amazing - and I know she'll give it a great home!!
So those are my quilt-y whoop whoops this week! Today I'll be spending the day with this little charmer...
who turns five on Sunday! Oh, and she had her own whoop whoop today - look what she made!
In case you can't tell, that's a s'more made with two different colors of felt (beige and dark brown) and a cotton ball! No coaching from me, she came up with this all on her own - cut it out and put it together and handed it to me! That's my girl!!
Anyway, Lilli and I will be spending the day together today, going to see a movie and a few other special things, while this little mess...
... is having her cochlear implant surgery! Please say a quick prayer for a successful implant and quick healing, and for calm parents........
So that's what I'm whooping about this week!
Now it's your turn - what's making you happy today?
Share with us so we can whoop right along with you!
The party will remain open until Sunday night...
Be there or be square!!
