It's finally Friday - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on? I am! I was sitting here thinking I didn't have anything to post about, but then I checked back and found out that I actually did have something! So let's start the party!
Remember this quilt that I made over spring break this year? The name "Nathanael's Ladder" was running through my head the whole time I was making it, because it was made using a modified Jacob's Ladder block and I was making it to auction or raffle off to raise money for the adoption of our Chinese grandson, Nathanael. I wish I could post a picture of him - he's adorable - but for right now we're not allowed to do that. Adoption agency rules. Sorry!
Anyway, this week I finally finished the quilt!
I love the way the Kona white and Kona silver play off each other - low volume but distinct if you look for it. And they were the perfect background for the Flea Market Fancy Legacy prints that I had been hoarding.
For the back I used some of the Denyse Schmidt prints that were made for Joann's, along with some more of the 2" squares I used on the front.
Organic straight line quilting to finish it off - isn't that gorgeous texture? It's soft and cuddly, too. Sixty inches square and I love it! Hopefully soon someone else will too! We're still working out the details on the auction/raffle, but I should have more info soon!
We're so looking forward to filling that center chair with something other than a globe!! And on the adoption front, I hope you'll check back on Monday - we're doing something special next week that I hope you'll want to be a part of!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
