On Friday, I went to Joanne's and loaded my niece Raney's graduation quilt, Raney Days & Mondays. You can see my post about the fabrics and the piecing for this Disappearing Nine-Patch quilt HERE.
It looks huge on the machine, but it is really only about 60x90, a long twin size. I did iron it - promise! - but I had to fold it up in the bag for transport, and it sure doesn't look like an iron ever came near it :*) It quilted out just fine though!
This is the fabric Laurie (Raney's mom and my sister) chose for the back...
Raney's baby quilt was a multi-colored polka-dot like this, so Laurie felt this piece would make the quilt even more special. I think it is the perfect fabric :*) Doesn't the quilting show up nice on it? So cute!
My favorite panto - Daisies Galore. Simple and fun and a little flirty - just like our sweet Raney! :*)
Here is the whole quilt (this was taken before quilting).....Don't you just love the design the Disappearing Nine-Patch makes? And it is SO easy too :*)
I have the binding all made and ready to apply, which I will do this week. And I also need to make a label for it so Raney will have the provenance of the quilt if she ever needs it someday :*)
Also completed this weekend - this block for the Promises & Borders BOM....finally!
I really like it laid out on top of Raney's quilt...
I'm thinking I may re-think the layout for this quilt! I really love these colors surrouding it and giving it a lot of color punch! Jenny's design calls for a 3-fabric sashing & borders, but this peek at what a bright scrappy sashing might look like is enticing me to experiment.... stay tuned! =^..^=
And I completed my Twister Tree - woohoo!!! But I'll wait until another post to unveil that because I have lots of photos to share & I don't want to overload this post :*) However, I will leave you with this little tease of the tiny tree our instructor made with her scraps from her big tree....
I didn't measure it for exact measurements, but this tiny quilt is only about 8x10 inches!!! And it is TOO cute!!! I've started trimming down my scraps to make mine... I can't wait!!! Many thanks to Starr for teaching us this fun new technique :*)
