Well, I am calling one of these a finish, but it still needs to be quilted. I completed my first ever Quilt-A-Long! I can’t tell you how excited I am to have actually finished it AND finished it in time.
I would like to start with a huge thank you to Jenna from SewHappyGeek, for designing such a gorgeous quilt and having amazingly easy to follow tutorials. She is so talented! If you aren’t already following her blog you really should! My second thank you is to my dear friend Dawn, who surprised me with the gift of Rendezvous in November – my favorite fabric line from this winter. As you can see, it makes a gorgeous quilt!
I have one more finish to share…my first ever APRON! And…it is my own design!
I am calling this the “Desert Daydreams Apron”. The fabrics are designed by Khristian Howell (who also designed Rendezvous – yes I love her fabrics!). Julie from Intrepid Thread sent me a fat quarter bundle of Desert Daydreams in Santa Fe Sky and this is what I came up with. Do you like it?!? If so, make sure you are signed up to receive Julie’s newsletter, it goes out tomorrow and my tutorial for the apron will be in there (you can sign up from the Intrepid Thread Blog)!
In case you are wondering, this is how I keep myself out of trouble…it helps that Anne has been taking 3 hour long naps lately! I am really going to miss nap time when it goes away, which everyone keeps telling me is going to happen any day now.
Are you keeping busy and out of trouble?
