I finished the last of the three quilts last night. This quilt is going to one of my closest friends who just had a baby boy a month ago (I can’t believe he’s a month old already).
I saw this fabric almost 6 months ago and knew from the start that I was going to make a quilt for my friend using this fabric. The problem was that it wasn’t due to come out until mid-to-late March. *sigh* That is the only reason her quilt was the last to be made (I had to wait for the fabric to be released).
I LOVE the bright colors, the fun patterns, and the classified ads just make me laugh. It’s totally boy! So cute! I even found ribbon that goes with this fabric line (who does that?) so I HAD to buy it, knowing I was going to roll it up and tie it with a ribbon (stole that idea from Andrea).
And now I’m done with my sewing machine for a little bit. It’s actually moving on to my niece this summer. Jason got me a new one for Christmas that still needs to come out of the box (yep, I’ve been that busy that it’s still in the box…seriously). I know, I know…it would have made much more sense to have sewn three quilts with the NEW sewing machine. Don’t think I didn’t think about that. I’m so overwhelmed with several things that the thought of unpacking a sewing machine and learn something new right now just might send me over the edge. LOL!
Side Note: The fabric is a Riley Blake Design called “Peak Hour” by Kellie Wulfsohn. If you’re looking for fabric, check out Fabric Seeds first. Her prices were more than $3 less per charm pack than anyone else that was selling it. She wasn’t selling any yardage of this fabric, so I just emailed her. I found out that she has a Riley Blake store near her and has access to many of their fabrics and was happy to get what I needed for a very reasonable price. Everything shipped in one envelope, so the cost of my shipping didn’t even go up even though I added two whole yards to my order. She was amazing to work with and I will definitely buy from her again.
