2016 Finish #7
Thursday I finished my string quilt.
The one I've been working on as part of the Scrap Problem challenge from
I brought it out and layed in over the recliner and
before I picked up my phone to take a quick picture,
Miss Polly jumped up and made herself comfy!
I love that cat!
I posted this picture on Facebook because cats on quilts are adorable.
I knew I would get great comments from my friends and family.
It always makes me feel good to know they like what I do.
I did not expect Cousin Julie to want to buy my quilt.
This is the first time I've sold a quilt.
I love that she loves it and wants it.
Today it will get de-threaded and take a spin through the washer and dryer.
Then I'll lovingly box it up and get it ready to ship.
One of the funnest things for me is after 2 blocks or rows are sewn together,
I look at the back. I never worry about if 2 of the same fabrics are next to each other.
I call it blind artistic expression.
It is a great way to use up my not favorite fabrics.
It's also amazing how much I really like some of these after they have been used in a quilt.
Weird, I know!
Thanks Julie for loving what I do so much that you want it to be part of your life.
Now I need to decided what to focus on for my next Scrap Problem challenge.
