I have two quilts to show and tell today. One I've already shown the top without the quilting, so I'll start there. It's my Valentine Pumpkin Seed that I picked up on Valentine's Day. Too late to display it anywhere, but I'm going to use it as my example at my class next week. I had Dixie Anderson quilt it for me because she does beautiful custom work without grumbling. :)
My second quilt is a 38" lone star that I started early in January. It's Christmas fabric and I didn't feel any rush to get it done, so I took too long on it. Then it popped up in the middle, which hasn't happened to me with any of the lone stars I've made so far. Boooo. I let it sit for a long time (after re-sewing the main seam in the middle twice) because I didn't want to have to un-do the whole thing just to fix a little puckering. Bah! Then my friend came over and we played twister on my quilt top and it stretched out fine. Off to the long-arm quilter it went!
Katy, but it's really too Christmas-y for her. I fell in love with this line of fabric (it's Benartex - I know, WHAT?), but I only bought enough for the star. When I went back for the border and maybe the back, all of it was GONE. I missed a 40% off Christmas fabric sale and... duh, of course it was gone.
I don't know about y'all, but all this black and white and red and serious fabric is making me crave some fun Easter colors. Yes? Maybe someone over at Amylouwho's is in a Spring-y mood.
One last thing. This is what my family room and dining room looks like right now, minus the babies:
