A couple of years ago my darling daughter gave me some fabric for Christmas. In my own sentimental uptight way I have never been able to cut into any of it. I really wanted to use the Yoga Monkeys on the back of my Texas quilt. I measured and it was not quite wide enough or long enough so I thought I would add a piece of aqua. I cut the aqua and sewed it and it was not wide enough. So I took it out and decided to add purple, I cut again and again it was not wide enough!! So I measured twice and cut three times! This is the way it ended up.
It is different but I think I will like it. I am hand quilting this one.
I am doing free hand fans. If you have never hand quilted I would encourage you to try it. It is so relaxing when you get in to the rhythm of sewing.
I had a finish this weekend.
This might be my very favorite quilt ever. I read that many folks wash their quilts for that "old" look and I did that with this one. I love the way it turned out and it is now on the way to a brand new baby boy. I hope they enjoy it.
