I have been soaking up all the Spring goodness round here without any shame:) No mam!
Maybe this should have been a tulip sharing post instead? Gardening is such fun though when things go right---I do stress go right as things don't always go as planned. It is a learning process just like quilting. There are always new techniques and tools that prove to work well.
When I am not tulip gazing, I have been piecing this pretty number. It is for my bed and I am SO ready for it to replace my boring, blue down comforter that is never short on supply of feathers that stick to everything--even people!!
Next step is getting out the seam ripper for those 2 green HST's, iron each row in a different direction as far as seam allowance goes and finally sew the rows together. After that I will be contemplating fabrics for one of the borders. The other outside border will be HST's all the way around.
I managed a pillow case for a little boy of mine as well that was cradling this Mickey Mouse fabric at Joann's while we were getting all that white fabric. I went to the cutting counter thinking, hmmm, I wonder how much of this I need to make one even though I should no better by now since I have made a few in my time! Eh maybe 3/4 yd? We will try that and use whatever scrao I have at the house for the accent piece and cuff. Mommy is goooood!!! I got home,took out that pattern for the pillowcase (Ayden insisted I make this right away) and booyaa! it was the exact amount I needed:P Ayden is happy:)
Do you ever go into write a post and not know what you are going to write about and then it ends up being a novel???---I do it all the time!
It's Friday-----enjoy your weekend!!
