Thanks to everyone for their kind birthday wishes for Charlotte. The day I wrote that post and complained about her sleeplessness- she started sleeping 8pm-8am uninterrupted! It's been going on a full week now - somebody pinch me.....
I am excited that I have finished three quilts within the past week:
I decided to share my most favorite finish first, the DS 36-Patch. It measures about 90 x 108. I did a double loop squiggle (technical term) at the longarm quilter's studio to finish it up. It is backed and bound in two Hope Valley prints that I got on a super sale over the winter.
The funniest thing about this quilt is that I didn't really like it until I put it on my bed. I just think it looks great when it's in use - I had my doubts all along as I was piecing and quilting it. It's so traditional and this has made me realize how much strength there is in simple, classic patterns. I also love, love, love Denyse Schmidt fabrics - some of them seem kind of ugly but then you use them and it's like, "wow - that's a genious print."
Thanks for reading!
