Pie? Anyone? Finished off the apple tonight. Still have some cherry and pumpkin.
It's been a quiet Thanksgiving break here - I managed to finish pieceing 2 quilt tops, made a pillow case, and am nearly finished piecing LaLa's quilt. I just need to run it through the iron and sew two long and potentially wonky seams.
Replaced the iron in the process. The other one must have finally shorted out - it just wouldnt' heat up anymore. I have to say that I spent more on the replacement iron than I could have ever imagined spending on an iron in my 20's. Even up to my early 30's. But it had all the features that sounded important and a good reputation.
I didn't take pictures of the pillow case, although it's sure a sight. LaLa spied some Halloween fabric that I had bought on a whim (remnant's bin. +75% off) Orange, with pumpkins and sparkle. I decided I could make a pillow case out of it, but it was too short and she had to pick something for the end. What does she pick? Something from the top of the heap - lavender gingham-print flannel, of all things. It's an interesting combination.
The quilt for LaLa. Here it is in thumbnails.previously....
this weekend it became:
This is the quilt we like to call "Electric Sherbet".
Here it is all pieced, it just needs "squaring up" and then it will be somebody.
A shot of the color sequence.
I picked out some crazy zinneas for the background fabrics. I swear those ladies at my LFS are total enablers. This quilt is destined for Project Linus. And the bonus? The quilt batting I lost in the closet turned up again.
Chinese Coin Quilt. I'm still not sure of the destination of this quilt. I really like it. It's sort of a bizarre size, what we might politely call a "napping" size.
The picture totally does not do it justice. I have some periwinkle flannel for the back, that I had to end up piecing with a small section of the (now ubiquitous) lavender gingham flannel.
