It's All About Weddings
My niece was married maybe 5 years ago? And, has 2 kids. I'm a little behind but at least I'm getting it done, right? She lives in Oregon and said she and her husband like earth tones. I adapted Edyta Sitar's wall hanging pattern into a bed quilt and added 2 more birds. One for each family member.
I used a whole roll of triangle paper to make the 1/2 square triangles and have around a billion left over. So, I'll be doing a few more projects from that book. I really loved this quilt until Hunter said it was trippy. I don't know what he meant by that. Trippy good, trippy bad? What? It got applause from my Applique group, so I'm taking that as good. Now to quilt it and get it shipped out. I'm a little scared. Machine quilting isn't my forte, really. And, my machine is iffy at best.
Yes, they all might read my blog and now know I'm making quilts for them. But, I'm pretty sure no one will be surprised that their wedding gift from me is a quilt...
The first batch didn't work so well. So many yellow cake recipes taste like sweet corn bread! Bleh. Sierra had the idea to change our favorite chocolate cake recipe into yellow cake. It has the perfect texture. She's so smart. Tomorrow, I have a quilty meeting to go to. I'm thinking, lemonade cupcakes?
