Yesterday the UPS man dropped off a parcel from my quilting daughter and her BF!! I took off the brown wrapper to reveal this gorgeous box…all sparkly and very foxy!
I thought that I had better not open it until I heard from my daughter, so I sent her an email. I knew that she would still be at work so I left the box on the couch…and waited…I was in the bedroom putting the laundry away when I heard hubby enter the RV…he wasn’t in the living room for more two seconds before he said, “WOW, what a beautiful Quilt!”
This is not an easy quilt to make!! More like an intermediate level quilt for sure! This from a girl who had NO INTEREST what-so-ever in sewing…NEVER touched a sewing machine!! Didn’t know how to thread a needle or sew on a button…and had no interest in learning!! WOW!! Seriously… I almost fell over!!
The pattern is one she found at the Fat Quarter Shop called ‘Hamptons’ by It’s Sew Emma…and the fabric is Winter Reds…LOVE IT!!
And check out her FIRST free motion quilting!! It’s a vine with leaves in the border and straight line quilting 1/4” from the seams!! Incredible!!
Ohhhh and did you see the BIG stitch HAND quilting around the edge? PERFECT!! AND she said she ENJOYED the stitching and would like to do more of it…I am amazed…almost speechless!!…do you think it’s in her genes??
Am I GUSHING?…please don’t slap me!! It’s just that I LOVE THIS QUILT!! Truly a gift of love…received with love!! Thanks SEW much, Erin!! I will treasure this quilt FOREVER!!
Just WAIT until I show you what she is making for herself…but I will save that for tomorrow…I need to savour the moment!!
Ok, OK…now you can slap me!!
Thanks, I needed that!!:o}}} P
