my favorite quilt of all time.... since i have been making quilts.
i don't have a fancy smancy camera so i did the best that i could with what i got. if you read my blog you know the story behind this quilt. if not, check it out here. its from a class i took from Tula Pink last year.
a few close up pics of my favorite parts of the quilt. i love the squirrels.
the pinwheels intermixed with the other various sizes of fabrics makes this such a fun and happy quilt.
more squirrels. i love fussy cutting fabric.
the back. i found the fabric in a quilt shop not to far from me called Material Girls in their clearance section. that is one of my things i do when i visit quilt shops. i seek out their clearance section and see what they might have for possible backings.
Teresa from Quilting Is My Bliss quilted this quilt for me. i met her at the Tula Pink class last year. she did a honeycomb pattern all over the quilt and I LOVE IT!!! the quilt was waiting on my door step one evening when i got home. once i opened the box and saw Teresa's amazing quilting i was so happy. like Christmas morning happy when i was 6.
this quilt has so many happy memories for me. i love the fabric. it was a great trip to Walla Walla for me. an amazing class where i met some really cool quilt people. Teresa being one of them.
i had the binding ready and waiting so it went on the quilt a few days later.
this quilt is headed for my bed. i made 4 pillowcases to go with it and i just ordered a purple dust ruffle. silly i know but I LOVE THIS QUILT. once its all together on my bed i will share a few more pics.
Stacks - my favorite quilt of all time
it makes me so happy during a time when i really need it. that also might have something to do with why I LOVE IT so much.
my Grandmother passed away this past week. she lived to be 92 and had a great life. i have lost 3 people that i was very close to in the past 9 months. my Grandpa, my Dad and my Grandma. i know we are never given more then we can handle but........ we could really use a break so if any of you are into sending good thoughts out to people we could really use some right now.
