OMG! I am doing the happy dance!! I cannot believe that I have a finish of a full size quilt. I think its the first in 2 years. And, its a quilt for me - that rarely happens. It took a little less than 2 weeks to hand quilt my spider web quilt.
Let me tell you, when bloggers wonder how they are going to tame their scraps, I always recommend making a spider web quilt. Its super easy and made a major dent in my scraps. I used a tutorial at Quiltville.
For the back, I used some fabric from Amy Butler's Cameo line. In my haste to start quilting, I just haphazardly cut my fabric in two for the backing. I then had this sick feeling because I remembered that the fabric was directional. I opened the fabric, aligned the pieces, and found that I had an inch to spare when lining the 2 sides together. Lesson learned - look before you cut.
It is currently on my bed and it seems so very bright for my bedroom.
I also have another finish to show soon. This month's theme for Le-Challenge is "toffee". The linkup will be on the 15th, so you still have time to make something - anything goes as long as it is completed.
Oh, and look what just happened to arrive in my mailbox this week. Its a half yard bundle of Architextures. I know I said that I was going to focus and work on my mountain of WIPs, but maybe.........not.
Linking today to Finish it Fridays and Whoop Whoop Fridays.
