On another note my friend Sharon came over yesterday and we had a great day of quilting. She made her mother a hexagon quilt for Christmas and we did not get around to quilting it before Christmas so she wrapped up the top to go under the tree. I think the fabric she used was Cherish Nature? Anyway it came out really nice. We quilted leaves and loops on it. When I took the picture I was hoping you could see the quilting. But not so much sorry. And if you can believe it Sharon and I got to talking and I forgot to take a picture of the finished quilt. Whoops.
My beautiful niece is getting married in May. And of course I am going to make her a quilt for a wedding present. Thought I would show you what I picked out. The reason I picked out this quilt is because it has hearts. Now I have a whole closet full of Thimbleberries fabric. I used to be gaga for Thimbleberries but not so much anymore. Now don't get me wrong there are some Thimbleberries fabric I like but I am ready to move on to brighter colors ( purples, pinks and yellows ). I have so much fabric from different collections of theThimbleberries from like 2004 I think I need to start sewing it up. No since and letting it seat there it needs a home.
I started cutting out the fabrics. For the heart block you have to make 80 31/2 inch 9 patches. I am well on my way. I will she show you more in a later post. It's time for me to visit my sewing machine now.
