I finished this quilt for my sister Julie a few months ago, but I couldn't post it cuz it was a surprise for her wedding. Anyhowzit, I gave it to her this past week in San Diego. Here is the long-waited pix of The Baby Maker.
I had been saving fat quarters and other various fabrics for quite some time for this project. Just a mish-mash of awesomeness, if you ask me. My favorite part, you ask? The border. Machine bound the binding after making 1 1/2 inch bias tape. It is definitely faster than doing it by hand, but I don't know if I'd do it on another quilt. The finished size is 82"x 65". I heart the plaid!
I created this blog to post all the crap I make and all the crap I fail at making. I mean, let's be honest for a sec. I love to create but only half my stuff turns out "blog" worthy, you know? I am all about realism so this blog is dedicated to my successes and failures as a creative artist. I love to sew, make art in CS5, quilt, and play with my boys. I also get a kick out of the mistakes I make when working on a project, especially cuz it's usually do to the fact that I don't read directions. AT ALL. EVER. Here's to a blog that celebrates success and most importantly, failures!
