I took a short hiatus due to the massive last post. Plus, I really did not have anything exciting to say or show, but I do now!
My sister named it Flames and Floral. I still think a lot of little girls would love it. Robin must have a baby girl someday so this quilt can get some use. All it needs is the binding. I ended up adding a border using some fabric I bought in Hawaii. I can’t believe it matched so well! I would have used one of the original fabrics, but I am literally OUT. There are a few scraps and that is it. I used every single piece of that fabric for the top and the back. I ended up having to buy some fabric to complete the back.
EVERY piece of those four fabrics. I am actually glad I don’t have any left because I’m not sure I could pair them with anything else after making this quilt. I’ll use the rest of the white sparkly fabric for the binding. And I used fluffy binding just to make it extra awesome. It is one crazy quilt.
SewObsessed had free shipping so I bought these lovely fabrics.
The fabric on the left is Michael Miller. I could not pass up the bicycles. My sister’s boyfriend loves to ride his bike, so I had to buy this and make something for him. I have no idea what I’m going to make him yet, but it will happen. Some ides included an iPad sleeve and a tortilla bag. The iPad sleeve got knocked down pretty quickly because he bought a giant cover for his iPad. The tortilla bag (like a potato bag because he only uses his potato bag for tortillas) is still a possibility, but I would rather use the fabric for something more fun than food.
And you have seen the other fabric from my previous post, Jay McCarroll’s Habitat. I had to buy some for myself. I don’t know what I will make with it yet, but I could not not have some of that fabric for myself.
I am not a big fan of the two left fabrics, but the rest make up for it.
My parents visited this last weekend and we went to Parkville, MO, to look at the shops downtown. We had a good time and my mom and I got to stop at a quilt shop. The Peddler’s Wagon has almost as many fat quarters as my favorite shop back home, Sew Country. I know now where I’m going to go if I ever want to buy fat quarters. Joann is having a giant Labor Day sale and I am planning on buying a lot of stuff that I need (batting, new cutting mat, etc.)!
