I slept in today.
I've been spending the last two days looking through my quilt books...trying to find the perfect pattern. I am making me Mum a quilt for her bed. I'm using the Dandelion Girl fabric collection, which debuted back in 2007. It's a Fig Tree for Moda line...always wonderful to work with...(thanks, Cathy!) I am very much looking forward to working on this one. (The 'jelly stars' quilt pattern shown in this photo is not the quilt I'll be making.)
I was totally inspired by this quilt...

I made me Mum a lap quilt back in 2009...click here to see it. This will be the first quilt I've made to actually be used on a bed...and the largest quilt to date! Mum had recently started talking about redoing the colors in her bedroom, which would involve buying a new bedspread. I suggested that she let me make her a quilt for her bed. And, I just happened to have this luscious fabric here waiting to be used!
I am very much looking forward to getting started...I'll keep you informed as to how it is going.
I still need to lay out the bowtie quilt to check it over one last time before I sew the 6 rows together. Then, that will join the others waiting to be quilted. ~sigh~ I really must start getting those done!
Have a good evening.
