After he surprised us all last weekend, I immediately went home from the hospital and started cutting out a quilt. I thought I had another 5 weeks to get one made. Uh, . . . no. I decided to use the sweet fabric I purchased from Creative Thursday and when all was said and done, I was two blocks short of making the design I wanted. So around midnight I was on the computer ordering fabric!!
These were my options:
This was my original design, but I ran out of the blue fabric with words on it.
So, I mixed it up and came up with this option, but I thought the spinning stars got lost in the design; hence the trip to the cyber mall for more fabric. I'm good to go now as the fabric came last week and I purchased enough for a few more quilts and the backing, etc. Silly me!
After failing at my first attempt to get a quilt made, the next morning I was up and at it again. This is the quilt I made. It just needs some binding and burying of threads and it's good to go. It's bright and colorful and I think the little guy will like it!
Then there were some envelopes that were calling my name:
I also worked on a reconstruction project. My coworker gave me a pair of her son's ripped jeans and I'm refashioning them. I'm really liking the results and when it's complete I'll post some pictures.
Hope everyone ENJOYed their sewing weekend!
