I finished the commissioned Monkey quilt and I think she will like it - it's cute and colorful and I like the binding now - orange is a great color. But only I know what misery I sewed into the quilt and it seems like my sewing machine caught onto my vibes cause it was a total pain in the neck, catching on seams - breaking threads etc. I have decided to get a new one and am leaning to Pfaff. Anyway here's that little quilt. Nephew Sean loved the sock monkeys - I do too! I have some left over and also have banana fabric and spotted fabric to go with it.
Now - I wanted to make something that I liked, and I had this great green and brown cotton fabric so followed a pattern for a quilt/wall hanging. I totally love the look and colors of this combo - Tony doesn't think it works for a baby quilt - what do you think? I took this picture in the basement so it is dark, I'll take another one in the sunlight and post it. It's beautiful fabrics - but I agree - different from the typical baby look.
I'm getting slightly better at adding photo's to this blog - but it still isn't straightforward!
And last but not least, my first Linus quilt - a little Cinderella fabric (actually it's the princess fabric that I used for the other quilt that I made for a friend) - it's backed with a nice cozy fleece that I hope some child will get some comfort from.
Wish me luck on the cold NH coast line - kayaking away!
