Prayers for those of you who are having weather woes!
Here is the reveal of the quilt I made for Humble Quilts Doll Quilt Swap.
"V" is for "Vermont"
My swap partner is Lorraine who happens to live in....you guessed it....Vermont!
Again, many, many lessons were learned in the making of this quilt.
I appreciate Lorraine's kind comments regarding the quilt.
We have become friends on Facebook, and I think we will be long time quilting friends!
I just received my quilt from Carolyn of Lee Prairie Designs.
Carolyn selected some really great blue fabrics, and the over all feel
of the quilt is quite masculine and I love it! She hand quilted it as well!
She and I have become Facebook friends too!
Thank you so much Carolyn!
In other news...........
It's beginning to look.......AND TASTE.......a lot like summer!
Caprese Salad with fresh tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, olive oil,
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper!
I am still working diligently on "Talkin' Turkey" which will be my very own Christmas quilt!
READ THE PATTERN!
LOOK AT THE PATTERN!
SEE IF EVERYTHING IS CORRECT ON THE PATTERN!
Bonnie has given us plenty of notice to check the Errata page on her
blog for any corrections that need to be made to patterns in her books.
Well, guess who didn't!
We are all human, and we are bound to overlook things.
Thank goodness the goof up I made will work itself out in the end.
However, if you are going to make this quilt, please follow the link I gave to
see the changes that need to be made.
The geese are literally flying out of the machine at this point!
So here are all 67 gazillion flying geese units and some can't keep their wings from flapping!
Here is the problem........the border unit geese call for the goose center to be red.
I just followed the number of geese to be made in the pattern.
Oh well, Bonnie provides the easy fix....just sew the units together and flip it.
The seam will be running through the red instead of the neutral (my green).
Again, I am not mad, or upset at Bonnie.....trust me! I thank her for sharing her beautiful
creative patterns with us!
I should have paid more attention to the actual quilt photo!
It'll all work out just fine!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
