I actually finished this quilt about a week ago, but hadn't gotten around to taking any pictures of it. Not that the ones I'll show you today are exceptional or anything, but it's better than nothing, right?
I used prints from (I think) three of the Denyse Schmidt lines for JoAnn's on the front and just made a simple pieced back using a few of the same prints.
For the quilting, I just did wavy lines along the horizontal seams, much like what Holly shows in this tutorial. After quite a bit of deliberation I used Kona Chartreuse for the binding. At first it seems a little bright, but it is actually a really good match for the green in several of the prints.
These two hooligans kept jumping in my pictures and demanding that I take one of them, so here you go...
In other news...
I'm officially halfway there. The first 20 weeks has flown by and I'm sure the next 20 will too. In about 4 weeks we will find out what this baby is, though my money is on another boy.
I spent all morning making a shirt for myself that I was really excited about. It is awful, but at least I was smart enough this time to use fabric I didn't care about. I think I am going to attempt to draft a pattern for myself from a very simple maternity top that I have had forever. Or not. Maybe I should just stick with quilting.
And did you see the fabulous tutorial that Elizabeth did this morning? I had decided last night to go ahead with the Rolling Stones blocks, but perhaps with color placement more like the quilt from Red Pepper Quilts that I linked to, on a white or light grey background. Now I can just direct everyone to Don't Call Me Betsy when it is time to make the blocks. How cool is that timing?
