Life has taken me away from my quilting blog, it was already a pretty busy year, with the addition of our fourth child, but then we decided to move, again, back to texas, and my life is just now starting to feel normal. I am almost unpacked, and we are starting to feel at home.
I honestly feel like I miss this blog and my quilting friends, I hope to be back here more often this year!
I have found time to quilt, and have a few to show here on my blog that I finished back before we put our house on the market (and I had to put my sewing machine away)...
this quilt is big, so excuse my not so pretty pictures. It's an oversized queen, and very difficult to photograph. I love this quilt, it was fun for me. I made it for my daughters bed.
I stuck with a blue and pink pallette.
I opted to send it out to have it quilted, my first time ever, and what a treat that was! It turned out perfectly, and I probably wouldn't have finished it otherwise. I had Emily of Emerson Quilting do it for me and it looks sooo good, and she was FAST!
I bound it in a blue and white stripe.
I let my daughter pick the backing...pink mermaids, from sarahjane (I love everything she does!)
