All Sewed Up

Finished - last night around 8:30.  I like the stripe running vertically.  Little quilts have their own set of benefits - the sense of accomplishment from just one day's sewing and packability (to name just two).  The plan is to layer today for evening hand quilting.  This might be a pipedream as hotel lighting is subpar - you know what I'm talkin' about.  


 I have a quilt hoop that breaks down for travel and offers two hoop sizes while lifting the quilt off your lap - creating space for your 'stab hand'.  



Jan is probably surprised at this post, as I usually work on full-size quilts.  To add to my list of vices, doll beds are now included in my 'just browsing' list.  My first official doll bed purchase was made New Year's Eve day in Princeton, KY while visiting family.  My sister and I were given doll bunk beds for Christmas years ago (one set to share).  Now where did I stash my half?

How fun! I love it! And I must say I am in love with the quilt in your header! It's going on my list! Happy Sunday!

I was enchanted by little quilts, briefly, until I figured out they took just as much time and effort as the big ones. The only savings is in fabric, but they do charm don't they!

Cheryl said...

Great job!! With fabric prices expected to soar, I think most of my projects will be small quilts this year!

Love your new bed.

Charming little quilt, and I love the green block down on the bottom row....adds even more charm!

Lisa said...

Love the quilt, and love how the one block draws your interest to it. I like your's better than the original!

Jan said...

Yes, I am surprised! I love it, though - much nicer than the original. Doll beds are great for display for the little quilties.

Nancy said...

Sweet! I like the stripe, too. Oh my.. hotel lighting for quilting? They're like quilting in a cave! Good luck.
