Rich and I have been working hard on some projects. Here it is all completed (with little N-man joining in on the fun):
We got a new bed in May. So we needed something for the bed, and I originally wanted a beautiful comforter. But I was not a fan of how bulky and heavy they are. So then I got this crazy idea to make a quilt. After searching for weeks, I decided on this pattern by Miss Rosie. found here.
First I picked the fabrics. I got them all at Cactus Quilt Shop on Orange Grove and Oracle. I was in love with their whole selection.
Fabric all cut out
First squares all sewn
Big center star. If you look closely, you can see that I had to unpick it after taking this picture. I'm not telling how many times I unpicked the stiches in this one big square so the seams would match.
It's actually looking like a quilt!
Almost done...This was all the piecing that I used the pattern for. Just have to add the borders to make it fit the bed.
In the meantime, Rich built this beautiful headboard for our bed. I am so in love with it!

Completed quilt! Such a great feeling. The borders are on, it's been quilted, and the binding is complete. I am sooo happy with it.
