I had won a jelly roll of Snap Pops by Sandy Gervaise and thought this would make a perfect quilt for a Tween, or maybe useful as a picnic quilt? The colours are so fresh and vibrant that it makes me think of Popsicles, so I present to you "Popsicles"!
I found the colours a little faded in this pic...another beautiful sunny day in Paradise, so I hung it on the line for a few more pics.
It was just a tad windy...perhaps I should rename this "Popsicle Kite!"I stood under the quilt as it waved in the breeze...the neighbours must think I'm crazy when they look over and see me snapping these shots...
but who could resist seeing these vibrant colours with the sun shining through!
I plan on doing the machine quilting myself. The quilt is not very large...48" x 62", and my repertoire is pretty limited. I think I could manage to do stitch in the ditch, cross hatching, or checkerboard. Any suggestions?
Aren't blog friends the best! Karen of KaHolly gifted me with these adorable note cards that arrived in the mail yesterday. She is so talented! The cards are incredibly well made, each quilt picture framed with a different colour. I love note cards and am always on the search for quilt-related ones. Thank you, Karen, you rock!
I was also the winner of a giveaway recently. Thanks to Liz at Moments , I am the recipient of three new tote bag patterns designed by Sara at Sew Sweetness. Her bags are all so sweet, and it was pretty tricky to decide on three. Here is what I chose...
I love the pdf versions...within a few minutes of getting an email from Liz to say I was a winner, the pdf files arrived from Sara. Thanks, gals, these will be lots of fun to make!
Yesterday was a full day of attaching bindings and making some progress on a few quilts. I finished off my day in front of the TV, watching Master Chef and putting a few stitches in my Schnibbles Dulcinea quilt...
Today will be another great day for quilting!
