My excuse for not posting is because I've been swimming in quilts to be quilted! I can't believe how many of these quilts I want to make! Problems of a longarmer - I need to search for fabric and add quilts to my to do list! I even asked one of my clients how much she'd sell me a quilt...I mean really this is becoming a problem.
But I have been editing the pictures I take - and am throwing together some posts as I have SO many fun quilts to share with you all.
This quilt I'm sharing today has been in the works for awhile. Ever since I made this quilt for Marta last year my sister Whitney has wanted one of her own. I gave her a layer cake for her birthday - in FEBRUARY. Telling her the quilt would be ready by Christmas.
I made it just in time! Who knew a quilt would take 10 months to make! I didn't love this fabric at first, but it has grown on me, and I really love this quilt. I used the Double Slice tutorial from Missouri Quilt Star. I would say this has been the pattern of the year for me. Uses just 1 layer cake, is scrappy looking, quick and easy to throw together. Perfect go to quilt pattern if you need a quick gift. (Or a gift that takes 10 months to make)
I quilted this using the Glacee pattern. Probably my most favorite Christmas pattern I have.
I love it even more on minky - I think I need just a quilt of this!
Glad to have one more quilt checked off the to do list!
