This quilt has been in my mind since I found out my honey couldn’t be with me after my surgery… have a quilt with me as a comfort object… My daughter bought me most of the fabric as a Birthday Gift .. It is FINALLY done!!!
This quilt is machine pieced… designed from pics I saw and my own imagination… follow my blog if you like to design on the fly.. I had some 10″ squares left over but very little else! YAY 🙂
I machine quilted the binding too! Quite a positive experience I tried it on curves on a project… didn’t work as nicely!!! lol
I added my label with my KC initials and the year added 🙂 I heat set the additions with my new iron (I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new iron btw!!!)
Now just waiting for the green light to pack my go bag 🙂 Excited and nervous but mostly ready to feel less pain!
Rick has been busy fulfilling orders for others… but he made time to make a special block for his sister… they are the last 2 living in their family …
Needless to say she loves it and was speechless with the gift from her brother 😀 Weepy eyes of happiness to them!
I bought a new blouse and love it! I tried it on then washed it as it was second hand from Marketplace … my first shipping transaction!!
Now to get it pressed and ready to wear 😀 I got some better fitting pants and another long sleeve sweater I will share when I wear them together 😀
Then fresh nail mail came too! One just happens to coordinate with my new blouse while the other is complimentary to it!! YAY!!!
I have been so busy with the Boho Heart quilt… I finished the cross hatch last Sunday….
Then to the right of the crosshatch got finished yesterday and tah dah!!!!
Here is a view after I rolled !!!
Above you can see where I preparing for each type of marking … blue water soluble markers from Leonis that I find on Amazon… And chalk pounce that I mark the cross hatch areas with because it is a busy pattern…. I love each method differently too! This color of pounce is light pink… but they have white and light blue as well…. I do not use the iron away pounce powder though only the pounce chalk powder!!!!
