The latest baby quilt
Here's the latest baby quilt. I just gave it away yesterday. I used fabrics from two different collections. One was by Jason Yenter, called "Camelot", for In the Beginning fabrics. I can't remember the other one's name! It was a woman that designed it. When I figure it out, I'll let you know. But, they are gorgeous fabrics in my humble opinion! These pictures never do justice to the piece. I realize, now, that I should've taken a close-up of some of the fabrics. :(
I have "key-tags" that my local quilt shop, Boersma's, sells for $1.00. (Yes, they should give them away, but.....) I think I have six of them saved up now and when they are full (which mine are!), they are good for $25.00 worth of merchandise!! I've been wanting to make a quilt for my husband and I, but our bed is king-sized, so I knew that I'd have to quilt it on one of the long-arm machines.
So, I'm going to get the top all sewn together, first, then go take a class on how to use those machines! My SIL has used them a bunch, so she will help me, if I need it.
The other cool thing is that if you shop on your birthday, you get 25% off of everything! So, I'm going to go in on my birthday (I hope!!) and buy all the fabric then. I think I'm going to use a Fig Tree Quilts pattern with Fig Tree fabrics. Not sure, but I have to get it all figured out before my birthday!! Oh-no!! Wish me luck! (I only have eight days!)
Enjoy the day!
