This is the last quilt I have to share with you from our book…For me, it’s my favorite.
Scrappy quilts are always my favorite!!
Some of you might remember the quilt that I made for our daughter Kayla’s wedding….At the time we were asked by MANY people for the pattern. We didn’t give it out though as we always had an inkling that we might someday put it in a book, and we did. The quilt looks very different though.
What do you like better, the dark prints or the light?? Sometimes I look at one and think dark. The next time I look I think light. I had so much fun making the light version for the book.
You might remember a year ago Kelli and I had a blog post asking all you faithful readers to send us either a 2 1/2″ square or a 2 /2″ strip of fabric. We promised we’d use it all in a quilt and this is the is the quilt we used the fabric in. It was so fun to see all the different fabrics you sent. There was a wide variety from tone on tones to novelty prints to polka dots. Goodness know I love polka dots. I put it all in this quilt. I would just smile as little pieces of this and that would show up. Once in a while one print would be a little dark and Kelli would say, “you’re going to use that”??? I would say “you bet”!!
You might remember that we promised a free book to one of the people who sent us fabric….we’re still going to do that but as of now, I have no idea where in the quilting room the box with all the names is. UGH. I looked once and didn’t find it. I’ll look again soon, I promise. Right now I am scrambling. I have a tax appointment for the end of the week and I haven’t kept up on my book work since August of last year or so. Be patient with me just a bit longer please.
Anyway…that’s the quilts from our book. If you haven’t ordered a book yet and would like to, please follow this link. Kelli and I can’t thank the many of you who have ordered enough. We appreciate your order. We’ll keep our book order tab up under the banner at the top of page. Feel free to order anytime.
