But first things first.
Yesterday afternoon I cut and made 4 heart blocks for 2 ladies from our craft group. I'll take these over to Khris' tomorrow. I finished sewing the appliqued hearts on, at about 10.30 last night.
Today I decided was some me time with my sewing machine. Check out my first ever completed quilt top.
Its called Bennington and its from the Schnibbles time two book.
Bit of info on the quilt.
- Fabric is Moda Luna Notte charm pack.
- Finished quilt size 29 1/2 x 29 1/2 inches.
Okay now you get to read about my thoughts about how I feel at this very moment.
Firstly I am just so excited to think I have actually finished a quilt top. Its not a big one, just a lap quilt. Thought for a first quilt I'd start small and see how I enjoy it. I feel that the last 2 years of watching and asking questions and making countless small items has paid off.
I'm thinking each time I look at it... I did that...I picked out the fabric, cut all the fabric and sewed it together.
While I am writing all this I am eating the most divine local Adelaide cherries I have ever tasted. Like I said I am so excited.
Now next payday I'll see if I have enough pennies to go to Hettie's Patch (where I bought all the fabric) and see about a backing fabric. I know they have the inner boarder fabric, for backing there and I so hope its not all gone.
So for the time being it'll hang on the coat hanger and look absolutely fabulous.
Lookout tomorrow girls as I 'll have a awesome show and tell. Then I get to do it all again this coming Tuesday.
Okay, now the give away......
To celebrate my first awesome quilt top been completed..... I have a charm pack to give to one lucky reader. Keeping in mind its Valentine's Day soon, I thought this would be a great charm pack to win. Then you too can make an awesome "whatever" from this charm pack.
Now what do you have to do with go in the draw.......???
Not a lot really...
Leave me a comment. That is all...... you can blog about it (that would be cool if you did) and become a follower if you want (that would be even cooler), but it's still only 1 entry per person.
I'll get one of the Tuesday girls to draw a name out of a vase......and you'll have 5 days to contact me. If I don't hear from you...I'll draw another name out.
Okay cherries all gone and I have a quilt top to drool over......
You're only limited by your imagination.
