What a fun sampler. You do really nice work! This obviously wasn't your first quilt, right?
Well your points are perfect! I also like the colorway (which if you knew anything about me a year ago you'd be shocked by that statement).
Glad you like it - I absolutely do NOT like it. I mean the fabrics fit togetehr and coordinate well, but keep that one? no way - but my mum claimed it, so I'm trying to finish it in time for her birthday.
As to the points - my mum was/is a strict teacher. She made me rip countless seams and unravel a million of projects in the past. Now I catch myself doing it on my own - voluntarily...
I agrees our point s are amazing! I really like this one... And the orange!
It was fated to be your mum's present. It looks fabulous.
Well for someone who's only done 2 other quilts, you're doing fantastic Strandkorbtraum !! Your points are pointy, your seams match up soooo nicely, and things aren't all wonky and bunched or puckered. So, kudos to your mom for teaching you so well....as crazy as I know it must have been for you, all that friendliness with your seam ripper in projects past has certainly paid off. Great job on your quilting it too...don't cut yourself short...SITD isn't so easy to get nice and neat. :)
Congrats!!! Great finish:-)
Its a wonderful quilt and the fact that your mum likes it, makes it a perfect gift for her. You did a great job!
True well I still have to go through the nightmare called binding .. I guess I have to raid the library again, I'm runnign out of DVDs
Rebeccajeffsmith - thanks, yes it really made the whole thing easier, knowing that she likes it. Of course she wouldn'T never tell me that she doesn't liek somethign I make as a present. But by claiming it that way I know she will truely like it...
Congrats on the thesis being done! That is exciting:-)
This is wonderful. I am not a fan of orange but think it is pretty in your quilt. Your mom is going to love it.
Good luck with the binding. You can do it! Have you looked into machine binding tutorials? There's a few good ones.
Damascst aye I have looked into machine binding, I just doesn't feel right, so I will keep sewing the binding to the front and then hand sewing it to the back - I had a long train journey home so the binding kept me occupied
Great finish! And love "extra" picture!;-) I have learned to machine sew on my bindings in a way I like BUT having said that I am very selective about when I do it that way as like you it does not "feel" right to me!
Lovely - and I adore orange so this is exactly the kind of quilt I am drawn to!!!
COngratulations on your finish. Love your kitty....looks very well behaved. Does the sofa panther have a name? Bastet? Memnoch? Fluffy?
Just wonderful! I love samplers..and you did a great job on each block. I am sure your mom will cherish it.
hehe no name, no - hey but maybe I should let you all come up with suggestions. Bastet sounds ok, Memnoch is hmm too hmm ... and Fluffy heavens no there is nothing fluffy about it ..
