Hi there! I’ve been working behind the scenes here on my challenge for the week – I hope you have gotten started on your challenge too! Today I am enjoying the last day with my girls, before 1st and 5th grade begins. How is the summer gone already!?
Over the weekend I received my Doll Quilt from Marilyn, aka Spiced Coffee on Flickr!
Look at this beauty–
I even hung it on the wall in our living room – the colors are a perfect compliment. Oh, and look at her beautiful hand quilting, and appliqué —
Marilyn also sent stickers for my kids, this fun book and adorable pot holders —
One of the potholders says, “When I learned to sew, I forgot how to cook!” and the other, “A clean house is the sign of a broken sewing machine.” Spot on for me!! There’s also a teeny pair of snips there, with a cover the shape of a puppy. Wouldn’t you know that’s what my girls really wanted, but who knows what they would be cutting….they are safe with me! Thanks again Marilyn – I love it all!
On the other side of the coin, my DQS quilt is done and ready to be shipped off! I had to get a label on it, and had put it off long enough.
Here’s the back side, including the label —
I just covered the name so I don’t spoil the surprise!
One last glamor shot —
I did a double layer of batting under the Dresden plates, faux trapunto, I hope my partner washes it, but wanted to let them decide.
Are you wanting to make Dresden plates yet?
Hope you are having a great day. Blessings~
