I finished the quilting for the quilt above yesterday. I'm so excited to share it with you! Hopefully on Tuesday. Just trying to finish up the pattern!
Color Me Retro, and they'll be displayed at Quilt Market at the end of this month. So not too long of a wait till I can share!
For now, they are taking a journey to be quilted by Lindsay of Eileen Quilts!
Katy Jones' tutorial and tweeked the template a bit, making it longer and doing rounded corners. I decided to make a little zippy pouch to put inside it, I'm planning to use it at Sewing Summit!
I used prints from Rock 'n Romance by Pat Bravo for both.
Anyways, I was really happy to find three great vintage sheets, another Arabia Finel heart enamel bowl, and a Dansk Kobenstyle fondue base! I was especially excited about the base. About 8 months ago, I found a lone Dansk fondue pot at the same thrift store without it's base or lid. I'm assuming it got separated, what are the chances of finding pieces from two separate sets at the same store? I'm hoping the lid will turn up one of these days!
The Sewcial Lounge for the birthday party, I picked up a few handmade goodies from some sweet local crafters! A zipper pouch made from hand-printed fabric by Erica of Golden Egg Press, and a bunny Fuzzie named Dalton by Emily of Bluestar Ink! I had such a great time hanging out with these talented ladies!
