February 1st, 2007


I finished my little shop quilt WIP, and I have to say… it was so much fun making it I kind of hated to finish it. Sort of. I’m always happy when a shop quilt is done and I can turn it in. It’s one thing to put my stuff off, but I can’t do that with someone else’s stuff especially sister friend Karen!

I did change the butterfly that came with the pattern into an “Anna Lena butterfly”. Karen did the beautiful machine quilting (maybe you can see it in the second photo)… and all the beautiful fabrics are from Karen’s Wash Tub fabric line. It’s hard to see in a photo, but with these vibrant 30’s fabrics it looks like candy on a quilt IRL.

It’s not often I want to make a shop quilt a second time (or for me for that matter), but I think with this one I’m going to get a kit and make one for me too. How can I not… it’s so beautiful and packed with all that Snyder goodness!

    This quilt is adorable and looks much better in person, than photo can show. Your blanket stitches are perfect on your butterflies and the quilting is fab.

    Wow, they actually quilt your store quilts? At my LQS they piece them and back them…no batting, quilting. So sad. They’d be so much prettier if they were finished. Yours is beautiful!

  7. The fabulous Anne Sutton allegedly said:

    Your quilt is just darling! I love 30’s fabrics! They NEVER go out of style and your selection is wonderful. Cute, cute cute!

  8. The fabulous Cynthia allegedly said:

    I’ve just decided to start quilting, for no paticular reason and this quilt is simply beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration, hopefully some day I’ll be able to turn out quilts as wonderful as this!!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
