December was a little…non-existent…here in bloggity blog land. One could say I was busy and out of town and sick and okay there is no really awesome excuse but I have some super secret quilty stuff that I’ve been keeping under my hat until after the holidays. Like this:
Here is what it finally looked like when all was said and done. Ahhh the 1990’s colorway. FYI, all hearts are hand appliqued and that center star, also on two corners, was hand drafted by yours truly, it was a y-seam o-rama I clearly had no idea what I was getting myself into.and this is the back…pre-label.
The quilt itself was pieced mainly with hand drawn templates on subscription cards (because I guess I was too poor in college to buy card stock and no one made template plastic back in those days anyway). No rotary cutting until I pieced the back because back in the day no one used rotary cutters…needless to say the back took me one day to piece. The adventures of this quilts’ making are tagged in the work-in-progress section.
The duffle bag is quite large
it could fit several quilts but my sister is a sky diver and a singer and voice over person so she does quite a bit of scooting around (in Germany, where she lives). The bag pattern is from Craftsy, it’s called the Travel Duffle Pattern by Studio Cherie. Here are some details:
More projects I have been keeping from you to come…soon…really soon.
