Well, last Friday my hubby asked if I could do a quilt for his mom by Christmas! EEEK! Of course I said yes (thinking OMG WTF!) lol Well, I got it done but it wasn't easy. First, the flannel backing was a smidge too small after washing to match up the lines in the plaid. Soooo, went to another LQS and bought more, washed the same (twice since it's red) and they weren't even CLOSE to the same red anymorel. I know, I know, rookie mistakes, but with work, holidays, and a deadline......
So, after thinking for awhile, my DD, DH, and I decided I should do squares with the flannel backing. The top is cotton and was a kit I got from Hancocks of Paducah last year. She loved it!! I was so worried.
The Second is a storm at sea top I made. JUST FOR ME! How often can we say that! :) I used the book "More Traditional Quilts Made Easy" from That Patchwork Place. It all started with the green w/ brown paisley (almost chartuese) fabric. I started it in early summer. I definitely learned alot! I will definitely be pressing seams open on the next one.
Thanks for looking! I am so glad they are both done! :)
