Woot-hoo! Friday Finish

Well, I finished Thursday night. But I’m taking it in for quilting this afternoon after work. Fingers crossed that they can get it back in time for me to finish the binding before Christmas.

It’s so ginormous because you have to add 6ish extra inches around for machine quilting. And since we know me + math = fail, I tried for and extra seven in hopes that if I screwed up I’d still be ok. Well I did good, I’ve got an extra 7″ all the way around.

I love the center fabric so much. I saw it a long time ago on Annette’s blog and her piece had the selvege with enough info that I was able to track down some yardage of my own. I think this picture gives the best idea of the colors. And oh look there MelissaC., Booty Way just for you. 😉

*Gasp* I even made a label & everything! I should get double points for that alone.

And I did!

The new issue of Quilts & More which is one of my favorite mags ever. At least right now. lol And Em-li’s had Little by Little on sale & I had to have Ann Pennsylvania Peacock. She’s just so awesome in a I’ll swallow your soul/messed up scale/primitive fashion.

  5. Hey! Congratulations on quilting a pirate’s fancy!! He’s going to just love it. And that stash of yours is great, too. I love “Little by Little,” and have used lots of pieces of her designs for my RRs in the past. You’re going to have fun, Missy. :]

    Great quilt and drool-worthy stash. I stitched the Black Heart way, way back, and I still love to look at it.
