The reason I need the sticky dots is because...look what came home from the quilter last night
The two slideshow quilts :) and yes, I'm using the red Christmas Cheery Circles fabric that's laying on the table for the binding. By the way, this is the third cut of this fabric I have bought. Wondering why? Read the story here.
There's a new project swirling around in my head that I may want to make for the mother of one of my daughters' friends. Both of my daughters have been friends with this girl since kindergarten. Her Mom is giving Emily a full size mattress set that has been in her guest bedroom and has been used only a couple of times. What a fabulous thing! Since she won't accept money for the mattress set, I'm going to make her a quilt. Here are some candidate fabrics.
I have to find out what colors she likes though - the colors and patterns in these fabrics are very bold and may not work in her house. I purchased them quite some time ago, and if they are right, I'll need to get a yard of the olive-ish green fabric to mix in. I checked the Kona Cotton color card and the peridot green is also a perfect match in case I can't find the coordinate I'm looking for. My daughter is going to scope out the colors in her home when she goes to pick up the mattress set.
Finally - and most importantly - Angela from Quiltingismytherapy has agreed to quilt the ladybug quilt. I am so excited because I wanted the green/blue nine-patch blocks quilted with green thread and the ladybugs quilted with matching/blending threads. The local quilt shop does a great job quilting as long as they can set the computer and just let it go, but that's not what I wanted for this quilt. Can you imagine green quilting all over the ladybug blocks? Since Angela does such fabulous quilting and knows just how use quilting to turn a quilt into a work of art, I couldn't imagine handing this quilt over to anyone else. I want Emily, her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren...to enjoy this quilt so the quilting has to be just right.
Have a great day :)
