Am I nuts. Oh yes.
Am I smitten with myself? You better believe it!
This was an exercise in discipline and commitment, but the results were totally worth every step of the journey!
I had a lot of fun quilting this one too. I called them organic loopies and put them around each of the diamonds.
Doesn't it make you want to just jump into this hammock?
This was also the first time I used cotton batting. And I'm loving how easy it was to work with. It really helped me cut down on the wrinkles and movement I am used to when sandwiching. I also like how it reduces the bulk, but is still nice and heavy.
Looks great all rolled up, doesn't it?
I adore the mix of neutrals, reds, and blues! I tried to make it girly with a pinch of boy thrown in. The mister is still hesitant about all the fru-fru and flowers, but is excited to see it completed!
I also didn't realize this in the moment, but the red binding matches the red color of the animals! Total win!
The question I bet I will get is so, do you think you will make another king size?
My answer. Heck yes! In fact, if you tune in tomorrow you will see what I am planning next. And yes, it's another big one!
Oh, yes I could really cuddle up with a book and just stay here all day!
Thanks for following along with my journey on this one. I really enjoyed your encouragement and input along the way!
Have you see the Summer Fair going on at Gen X Quilters?
Who doesn't love a day spent with quilts and food!
I am also checking in with to Lily's Quilts for Fresh Sewing Day!
And last, but certainly not least, you can see me at Fabric Tuesday at the lovely Quilt Story and Fabulous Friday at Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust
Much love for Japan
