|back in november ....hurricane sandy happened and when i saw gathering fabric's newsletter i decided to make a quilt...started out with 2 1/2 " wof strips sewing 3 strips together|
|and cut them into 6 1/2 " square blocks....my first plan had a low volume idea|
|but looking at this i decided to add some solid white ...|
|put several rows together rail fence style...fell in love but then life happened....it sat for awhile...|
|over christmas break it surfaced again xoxox|
|and i finished piecing and managed to get it on the longarm|
|used some ufo blocks for the back|
|and fell in love xoxo|
white might not be the most practical but this is a HAPPY quilt...
|i took a lot of photos|
|machine quilted it w modern links by jodi robinson|
|decided on a white binding...more in love xoxo|
|i stamped a label...cuz i am a stamper now xoxox|
|and today i attached a card|
|with a special note ...and dropped it off at my lqs ...a big thank you to susan at gathering fabric for being a local drop off ...she has already sent 13 quilts to luana@ equilter and is getting ready to ship more xoxo|
