Simply Play

4.24.2012

I thought you would want to see the happy couple with their quilt. =) 


I finished up the Simply Play quilt I was working on playing with the other day. 

I wanted to do scalloped edges on it, but it don't go so well and I gave up.  The mitered corners at the bottom of the scallops wasn't happening and it bugged me. Perhaps I need to start with gentle waves on the edges instead. 


This quilt quilted up perfectly. I didn't have on bit of trouble with shifting fabric or any puckering at all. It was a dream to quilt. 


My favorite part....The back.

Isn't this vintage sheet perfect for the back of this quilt? 


I cut a strip off the bottom of the sheet and sewed it to the top so I could make sure the top of the sheet with the eyelet and the row of flowers were left intact across the back. 


Size : 60 x 60

  7. I just found your website after searching for a windmill quilt. So far, I *love* it!! I have never quilted anything because I'm scared to death of it. But that doesn't stop me from looking at different quilt block patterns and enjoying quilts made by the hands of others. I look forward to reading back further on your site, and I'm happy to have found another redeemed sheep!

  10. What a great way to take a pic of the happy couple with their quilt!
    Love the other quilt too; the back is perfect!
    (It did remind me of a silly story that went around here a few years ago - a not-so-bright couple spent the night in a bed that didn't work out so well, partly because the sheet wasn't long enough, so their brilliant plan? cut off a piece of the sheet from the bottom and sew it to the top - that should help, right?! LOL)
