On to quilting already...

Hi Everyone,

I hope you don't hate me for this not so naturally lighted picture. It rained cats and dogs yesterday. I am in California we are supposed to have the nice weather. No tornadoes in my neck of the woods though, so I won't complain. I only had about an hour's worth of work left to do on this quilt so I went ahead and finished it last night. I think it will be so adorable all quilted up and bound in... red? or green? And who gets it for a Christmas present?

This is a pattern by the girls over at Quilt Story. I met them at market and snatched some patterns. Let me know if you want me to kit it up for you. I love these fabrics. I mean I really love them. They are vibrant and the prints are so delicious.

My quilting frame has been my packing and shipping platform so I guess I better get everything moved off of there so I can get this thing quilted huh?

LouLouThi will be in tomorrow woot! Then Dazzle, 1001 Peeps and Hoo's In The Forest early next week. I can't wait it will be raining fabric over here (instead of the wet stuff :) ).

Talk soon!

  6. I feel your pain. It's not supposed to rain in June in California, it's just not. Looks like the sun might come out for a little bit today here, but it's still cold.

    Wishing you weather and quilting luck! I would bind it in green :)
