If I Kept Everything I Made, I'd Be On an Episode of Hoarders
Then my supervisor's daughter is also due that same week. Grand babies galore and in the middle of Prom Season, too. I made this quilt a few years ago but it was too feminine for a friend's baby boy. It's been sitting around just waiting for the right baby to come along. I just loved the colors on this. It's so cheerful! Again with the purple...the backer is also a really sweet lavender polka dot. Everything but the backer was out of my stash. It's all about the stash this year, too.
My most recent design is a quilted, removable cover. I appliqued their monogram in her wedding colors. It's a black and white wedding. I made my first ribbon milliner's roses. I just used polyester satin ribbon. Don't know if I want to start collecting silk ribbon. That could be another big investment.... The same reason that I avoid wools.
I also finished my Floral Fantasy quilt for the quilt show but I'm not sure if I should post it or keep a secret for the quilt show in June. Hmmm....I'm not a very good secret keeper.
