I'm glad you were wondering what I have been doing this week because I really wanted to show someone these matching farm-themed tops. I have decided to make two of every top again--if I have enough fabric of course. I guess I figure if I am going to go through all the work of finding the fabric and cutting it out--I might as well make two! I used Cluck Cluck Sew's Road Trip Quilt pattern--a very easy pattern to cut and sew and guess what ladies, it has no matching seams--perfect for when you are having one of those days where perfectly aligned seams are the least of your worries!
Yes, that is my back yard. And yes, I left the toys there on purpose because
I am too lazy to move them I thought they would add to the playfulness of the quilts. And yes, I did crop out the broken plastic patio table and chairs that I am also too lazy to throw out my kids use for all kinds of imaginary play. You're welcome.
And after what seems like FOREVER I have finally allowed myself to play with pink fabric again.
In May of this year I put myself of a special boy-only quilt diet. There are a few examples of my boy-themed work Here, Here, Here, Here. Six months later I still feel a bit icky about making girl quilts--and my eyes are now drawn to the sport prints on equilter.com. I wonder if I have poisoned my quilting life forever.......
On a completely different note, many people have generously offered to send quilts for our prison giveaway coming up on Dec. 4. This is a friendly reminder that if you were planning on sending us something-you should probably be doing it within the next week or so.
One more item I should mention--I am adding 25 more kids to the 'Wrapped in Hope' list tonight!
Please take a look at the available children and e-mail me if you are interested in quilting for one!
