Tuesday.

Not the best picture.
But the top is DONE
and I have to blog about it right away...right?


This is for an upcoming wedding.
I love it.
I think I'll tell the bride....if she doesn't like it...
PLEASE return it.
I'll gladly make one to suit her...
because....
This one suits ME very nicely!!


This was my inspiration fabric.
A fabric gifted to me on my birthday.

This quilt has a little bit of everything in it.
Even some vintage linen in the block above.

I had this GREAT white fabric in my stash.
Look at that selvage.
Normally I give my selvages away...
but I'm keeping THIS ONE!!!

Now, to me....
a Successful quilt involves NO trips to buy extra fabric.
A REALLY successful quilt is
Beautiful and lovely
WITHOUT any errands involved!!!
This one is NOT one of my success stories!!!

I made TWO trips looking for the border fabric I wanted.
The stores didn't have it anymore. :(
IT was REAL pretty too!!!!
I TRIED hard to use what I have.
I thought about piecing some with scraps...
but there weren't enough scraps.

I bought this instead:

I love these two fabrics.
They tie in really well with the quilt.
AND....
they were half price!!!

O.K.
I guess there are some success stories
 that involve trips to the fabric store!

  6. It's okay to buy fabric if it's ON SALE.... especially if it's half price!

    Love the quilt.... I can't imagine anyone not liking it!

    Congratulations!

  8. It's a lovey quilt. I'm sure you're going to be disappointed because they will love it and want to keep it. It's an unusual colour combination but works very well!
