Well, I didn't mean to be away so long.
I was waiting for my "purple" thread so that I could finish Ella's quilt and that took about a week to get here. Wouldn't you know, when it came, I realized I had ordered "green" thread instead.
In my head I wanted purple to match the quilt, but they didn't have anything that matched, so I ordered a green to compliment/coordinate with the background fabric.
When I saw the posts about the new Pantone color for 2014 - orchid, then orchid just stuck in my head. Oh well.
I quilted "angel wings" on the quilt and I think it looks so girl-y. I hope Ella's parents love the quilt when they get it.
I finished the binding today.
So here is the completed quilt with a peek at the backing.
This quilt is sooooo warm. I enjoyed having it on my lap while I was hand stitching the binding down. Of course with the arctic freeze we are suffering over a good portion of the US, I think it will be greatly appreciated.
So this will be off in the mail this week as baby Ella was born this past December.
Now....what will I post about from here on out? I am working on a dual challenge (killing two birds with one stone) and I won't be able to share it for some time. I guess I am going to have to get out some UFOs and work on them simultaneously so I have something to report.
Well, I hope everyone is warm where it is cold and cool where it is too warm.
Me? I am praying for an early Spring....very early. This sub zero weather is just way too cold for me.
