First, a finish:
|With the angle it's hard to tell, but this is sideways|
|Fabric is Pure by Sweetwater|
|Close-up of the quilting that almost killed me. I will find|
another way to get a neat circular design--this was
absolutely draining. And there isn't really that much.
|Backing, brown and a tan/white gingham|
|My little label from spoonflower. I think I need something spunkier!|
The other one is still in progress--in fact, I'm taking a break from quilting it right now to post this. Not going to lie my arms are sore. Mainly because I chose to back it with the moda snuggles (or cuddles or something cute like that ) which, while soft and snuggly/cuddly, is not very slide-y in the machine, so it takes a lot more effort. But, I'm doing a flower type pattern all over (that I got [stole] from Flo @ Butterfly Quilting) so it's going to be great. And it's actually going pretty fast. Anyways, here is was before I basted it and stuck in in my machine:
Check out that cute duck tape!
Also, yesterday I did the Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL. blocks for the week.
And, I picked out fabrics for the Sparkle QAL.
Whew. That's a ton of pics. I'll be linking up to Finish it up Friday with crazymomquilts and Sew & Tell with amylouwho. And when the day comes, I'll link to Sew Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations and Manic Monday at Sew Happy Geek. Happy Friday!
