Spumoni Finished!

Hey Guys!

For the record, I actually finished this quilt last Wednesday with my Janome.  Quilting it on the Janome, which would only fill half a spool at a time was like forcing a 10 year old to eat liver and lima beans, but I did it!  This was the first quilt I made for a person that I wanted to keep for myself… it is sooo pretty!  Here are the pictures:

I had to take frequent breaks because of Hello Kitty.

Washed and folded.  I love how the quilt looks after it is washed.

So guys, what you think?  I think this is my prettiest quilt yet!  With that said I am already working on another one.  I still have pictures to show you of two I am in the process of making and my shame for still not completing my friends baby quilt.   I have to finish that quilt! I will post more tonight maybe?  I am linking up to Plum and June for Let’s Get Acquainted Monday and Quilt Story.   If you are visiting from there please comment!  I love comments and finding new blog to read and be inspired by!

Until next time, Sew Pretty!

It will have to wait until tomorrow…

Hey Guys!

Well, I have been working on this quilt most of the day and I was ready to baste this pretty thing and guess what?  No batting!  It will have to wait until tomorrow.  I am so disappointed, because I would have started quilting tonight.  Oh well..here are some picture of the quilt top and the pieced back.  I used every single scrap from the block to piece together the back.  It was very freeing working with all those scraps!

It can wait until morning

Here is the finished quilt top!  I really love the outside border.  I think it frames it perfectly.  I will be calling this quilt Spumoni.  Spumoni is an Italian ice cream that has pistachio, chocolate and cherry ice cream together.  In one of the classes I am taking, the teacher suggested the ice cream flavor and I think it is perfect! 

It can wait until moring

Here is my pile of scraps….there was so much I could not toss it aside.  It was really fun making something out of nothing!

I made my scraps fit into a log cabin!

Sew Pretty!
