Just because no quilting has been happening around here doesn’t mean that I can’t TALK quilting!
If you are a regular reader you may remember that about two weeks ago I was working on this quilt…
It’s going to be a quilt for my daughter, Maggie….it’s called Science Fair by Jaybird. Wellll…my quilting daughter, Erin saw it, said she loved it and wanted to make one for herself! (the ultimate compliment!!) I told her that I would mail her the pattern and the special Hexagon Ruler when I was finished…
Well…in just a matter of days Erin had found a pattern, the ruler and fabric at a local Quilt Shop…and had the fabric cut out and ready to go!! Throw in a week of Spring Break…and Erin has herself a drop dead GORGEOUS quilt!! I mean FINISHED, beautifully quilted and she even tackled bias binding to go around those hexagons!
I’m not showing you any pictures of her quilt…nope, not going to do it!! If you want to see her quilt then you are going to have to go to her house…BUT be warned…you are going to be amazed!! This is a quilt made by someone who has been quilting for LESS THAN SIX MONTHS!! She didn’t even own a sewing machine (and had never operated a machine) until she tripped over one in a thrift shop last summer and thought “hmmm…I could use a machine for mending!!” Yup…you are going to be amazed!! I know I am!
Maybe I should bundle up my bits and pieces of my Science Fair project and have Erin finish it off for me! It’s a thought…but I have a feeling Erin is already on to another project!
Go ahead and check it out…I dare you!! :0))
Have a Thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting~P
