Spools, Stitchery and Romance!


There, it's finished!
A quilt for the Quilter in me. Spools!
I got the final border on and I have to say that 
I am happy about the finished quilt even though
it looked like @#!*@! on the design board...
once those rows came together and the sashing went between them
it started to take shape. Someone suggested a checkered fabric for the inside border...
but the weekend came and I wanted to "get it done" so I thought I would
make my own checkered border. Then to finish it up... I used the larger 
print fabric for the outside to give it some weight. 
 I would like to make another one because I think it would be a cute wall hanging 
in the sewing room 
and it would be sweet for a baby... yes, a certain sweet baby, hehe!

Here is a little stitchery project that I started...
It would be cute for a little girl...
but this one is meant to be for me! 
You can see the picture of the whole pattern at the top of my blog.
It''s for the little girl in me-- I couldn't resist it!

This is for the romantic side of me.
In Robyn Pandolph fashion.
I was able to whip this quilt up as a special assignment project
for Fat Quarter Shop... and I just noticed today that it is up on their 
web page, kitted and ready to go!

Here is a quick picture I took of it before I mailed it off to 
the wonderful Ms. Jolly for it's photo shoot!

Wonderful things to see on your blog today. Love the Robyn quilt, so soft and pretty. Good for you stitching the little Betsy stitchery for yourself. Someday I hope to make that spool quilt, I really like the staggered spools.

LOVE your spool quilt - perfect!!!

The quilt for the FQS is beautiful.

Hey, I'm making Betsy's Closet for the little girl in me and for another little girl in my life. Reminds me so much of the paper dolls I enjoyed so much.
