Well hey there!! I made this quilt in May….as in 3 months ago…whaaa?? Time sure speeds by fast.
I made this one to take to Quilt Market, and I tried to use “gender neutral” colors…but I’m always kinda stumped as to what that means. I figure I would have loved these colors as a young girl… so hopefully someone else will too!
This was made with my Hello March pattern (previous post on the pattern here), and a “layer cake” I cut from my own stash. I quilted this one myself and apparently I was in a mood to try something new. It turned out to be a swirly/pointy/popcorn design…in a few places it looks like a hot mess but overall…not so bad!
This kid has become an excellent quilt holder-upper. Except he has to stand on a bench and he charges me for his services…$0.25 cents a quilt or ice cream is the going rate for a quilt holder-upper. Not too shabby!
We’ve renamed this quilt “Hello Idaho” in my house since the blocks kinda sorta look like the state. We had a lovely long visit to Idaho last month (Ashton) and even though I love Seattle, I sure wish I could live in both places at once.
I have to give a big whopping shout out and thank you to Sarah over at Spunmonkey Designs for helping me me move my website to WordPress last month. It was not without BIG challenges (like me making a big bad mistake and having to re-upload 1500 blog photos!!!!) but it was worth it. If you’re thinking of migrating from Blogger to WordPress, she’s highly recommended by moi!
