A finish, a do-over and a baby gift....

6.16.2011

My honey is on his annual kayaking trip, so I have been very busy in my sewing room. 

A) to keep me busy to pass the time 

and 

B) to keep the depression/anxiety away. 

Before I had quilting in my life, I would movie binge. I must say, it's more fun to have something to show for my time. =)

Ok...Show and Tell time. I made this 40" x 32" quilt  top over a year ago using Lady Harvatine's pattern.
The backing was a wild curtain I found at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago. It was perfect for this bright quilt. I have more of it left, so it will pop up in another project eventually. 


Baby Myrna's quilt. She is several weeks old, so I need to get it to her! 


Love the sweet and sassy girls. 


My do-over and I am ashamed to say, I didn't take before pictures. This was one of my very first quilts. The binding was terrible and I wasn't thrilled with the quilting. I removed all the stitching and redid it with simple straight lines. At the last second, I decided to add some applique flowers. 


Now I really like it!
