Would you believe that there are bloggers out there that had quilts already made in January! I make little things for my home but a quilt?? I just don't have the stamina to come home after working with kids and sitting by my sewing machine. That is so hard for me. So I really just machine sew once a week. It is either Friday night with a few drinks in hand to keep me motivated or Sunday in between laundry, gardening and cooking a few meals for the week. During the week I basically hand stitch. So I will not get the quilts I want done as fast as I would like. With that in perspective I started working on my Lilybug's quilt early this year. For those who don't know, Lily is my precious granddaughter and every year I make her a quilt. Her birthday is in October but because I do get distracted I wanted to make hers first. So here it is ready to be sandwiched. I used Nannette's pattern which is a fun pattern to use because she has an adult size quilt and a child size one which was perfect for my Lilybug. I was gong to hand applique these but honestly I wanted it to be more durable for her . I used several designer fabrics from my stash so no new purchase here. Actually the second pink border was the first fabric I ever purchased from the Fat Quarter Shop 3 years ago and just opened it up! Now that I like this so much, if I can stay focused , I would like to make her some matching throw pillows and maybe a wall hanging with her name. You guys know I love ideas!
