I call it my Fairyland Mini Quilt. It went to Jeni as she shares my love of the FFA fabric.
It is 17" x 19". I quilted it in wavy lines which has been a trend for me recently it is my new favorite way to quilt.
I got one from Christina which is awesome since it is something that I would never have made myself. It is just so fun to have something different in my sewing room. I just love it. It is the small mini on the bottom of this picture. Thanks again Christina!
Then yesterday I was really in the mood to use a different colored solid after seeing Jen's amazing mini quilt. I used Kona Cerise which is more purplely in real life then in this picture. As you can see I again did wavy line quilting, I think it compliments the Mendocino fabric by Heather Ross so well to create the under the sea waves effect.
This pillow is 18" and has a zipper in the back and is going to a friend. I made it with her in mind so it isn't staying with me :)
Kelly decided to do a Quilt Along called My Precious. It is making everyone actually use their hard to find fabrics that normally just sit in their fabric storage. Which I have actually been doing all year. I cut into my favorite fabric line Park Slope by Erin McMorris to make Penelope a quilt, I made a Wonderland by Momo quilt for me, I then made Gweniveve a Mendocino quilt for her bed. Then just the other day I made a large log cabin quilt using up tons of my HTF fabrics, ladybugs by Tula Pink , Mendocino, FFA and Amy Butler.
I decided to push myself to get my second Mendocino quilt finished with the My Precious QAL. If you have been following my blog for a while, I have been at it for 5 years or more, then you know that Maverick stars are my favorite along with log cabins. I can never get enough of them. Since this quilt is for me I had to make my favorite type of blocks. This is what I have so far. I can't wait to get this one done. It will also be sashed in the Kona Azure like I did Gwen's since it will go on her top bunk even though I have told her this quilt is mine.
Sheesh that was along post with lots of different things in it huh? well I hope you are all having an awesome weekend. We watched We bought a Zoo last night and I loved it!!
