Is the title I have given to the lap quilt just completed for DH’s cousin. I have been on the look-out for fabric since last July when the first pieces were discovered at a cute shop just outside Jessup,IA. Named “Merry’s Stitchins”, it is located on a lovely rural property AND she has just moved across her driveway into her beautiful new building!!! Slowly the fabric acquisitions have continued and were completed last February when I visited a very cute shop in Cresco,IA, named “Quilter’s Garden”. You can read more on that here. This top became this as of Tuesday afternoon. The quilting went super fast and I call it “Loopy Lollipops”. The quilt pattern is from the Spring 2010 issue of “Quilts and More” and is called ‘Flower Show’. Once again, I used water soluble thread (top thread)/all purpose (bobbin thread) to machine baste the 3 layers together for quilting. So freeing not to have to worry about avoiding pins when FMQ. The fabrics come from a variety of sources: Maywood Studio “Are We There Yet” (campers, marshmallows on sticks), Marcus Fabrics (mosquito fabric), Connecting Threads “Quilters’ Candy” and borders/sashings were from Thimbleberries for RJR. It is now washed, dried and cozy, just awaiting it’s special label.
Hope to get it in the mail and headed West shortly….Yay!…..another UFO completed! Now, on to some needlefelting………….
