Hello and happy Tuesday! I was able to finish up some works in progress this week end…and while it was fun to finish up every one, the first one I’m going to share was extra special.
A couple of years ago I received a layer cake of the “Oink-a-Doodle Moo”
collection by Jen Ski for Moda fabrics. I quickly sewed the layer cake squares into a cute little throw, thinking I would donate it (sewing Layer Cake squares together in a 5 x 6 or 6 x 7 lay out is my favorite way to make donation quilts). But then I just couldn’t give this quilt away. I kept thinking maybe I would have a cute little one to gift it to someday!
I absolutely love the fun hexagon quilting my friend Kaitlyn did that mimics the chicken wire prints…so fun! And…I do have a happy home for this quilt to go to for Christmas this year!
Kaitlyn also quilted my Coney Island mini quilt. Now this wasn’t a work in progress for very long, but it still feels good to have it finished and bound, and out of the drawer!
Kaitlyn did a fun all-over swirl pattern on this one which she sized down to fit this smaller quilt. I think it turned out perfectly (if you still need quilting for Christmas, you can email me and I’ll give you Kaitlyn’s contact info.).
I’m hoping to get this hung up on the wall today!
I have another work in progress to share tomorrow…but along with getting three quilts back from Kaitlyn, I also received my Quilts and More cover quilt home…so happy to have it here since it’s been away since last May!
I really, really love this quilt…I sewed it while on vacation last March on the Oregon coast, and so there are lots of fun memories along with this quilt!
Hope you are having a wonderful day…thanks so much for stopping by!
