I hope you stick around and play along with the Wool Challenge that is going on:
It's one month of fantastic interviews with wool experts, a few free and totally wonderful patterns and how about a giveaway at the end for sharers of photos and random draw! Come Wool Along!
now, here is is—– it's time to show off one of my current quilts I am in love with!!
Now, i know it totally is showing off it's folding lines…because it has been folded for 1 year now! ugh. what a horrible thing. To be hidden that long. But it has been waiting…waiting for binding. And, it is a christmas present. and since it wasn't done for last year…thus, the folding wait..it will be presented this year.
Quick story about the quilt– fabric was purchased by the honey a few years ago. He actually went into the store and asked for help on picking out fabric! isn't he the greatest?! oh yeah. Well. I often stared and watched the fabric, not really sure what to do with it. I had found a pattern in a magazine years ago and had bookmarked it….i so loved that pattern. One day the connection of fabric and pattern hit and here ya go.
I often make fun of others who sew a ton of triangles together— yet i find sewing up a ton of triangles…lol
The quilting design i had spyed on another quilt and loved how the feather is split with the larger and pieced triangles…so that is what i did.
The honey will be getting this quilt for christmas and tomorrow i will be showing off the 4 quilts that are finally done for the kids!!
I'm really having a hard time keeping it secret….how early can i give them so they can snuggle in christmas?
