I've been a busy little bee. I whipped up this quilt (it's just ducky!) over the weekend. (another one down for Finn's challenge!) WHEW! The baby shower is tomorrow. A friend contacted me and wanted something in a hurry. It would have been fine, but I tried to do the ribbon-like quilting of this quilt, but this time with my darning foot and the feed dogs down. Ooh it was a disaster. I had to rip and rip and rip. Ended up doing this with my walking foot. Not really what I wanted, but it turned out fine in the end. It's a simple 4 patch made from two ducky baby sheets (which she gave me) and the back is these flower curtains. She wanted something "green" so we upcycled. It always amazes me what can be done with recycled materials. I hope she'll like it. ( I actually made a second one for another friend...those sheets go a LONG way.) I'm going to give it to her at lunch later in the week.)
Finished up a few little things on my to do list. Love the polka dot binding. These should make nice little gifts.
I'm most excited about these. Made a few scrappy, wonky log cabins...
Free pieced a vase (though it looks a bit more like a lava lamp to me, or maybe a VERY funky tie!). I was inspired by Tonya's wonky bottles. I'm participating in Tonya's House, Home or Pantry quilt together. The folks in that group are so talented and definitely inspirational.
Put them together and...a hip bouquet of flowers! This is just a sample, but there is so a whole quilt using these in my future. I just have to figure out where to go from here. This free piecing thing isn't as easy as it looks.
