More quilts! More quilts!

Quilting & sewing August 18th, 2009

Little-known, but interesting, fact: In Kim-landia, tomorrow = four days from now.

This quilt was sitting in my UFO box, blocks already sewn into rows, and thus was an obvious candidate for my get-finished-quick scheme.   It’s a bit difficult to see, but I quilted puppies into two corners.

Amazingly, there is no intended recipient for this quilt — it’s just a spare.   I’m trying to build up a reserve.   We’re in a recession, you know.

Special note to Corrie: Pictures of Steven’s quilt to follow.   It’s going into the mail soon, although “soon” in Kim-landia = possibly never.   If you want an early peek, it’s after the jump.

Special note to everyone else: More quilts after the jump!

I wasn’t too excited about this one to start out, as (confession) I don’t like sock monkeys, orange or lime green, but I love the finished product.

Steven's quilt

Steven’s name is in the corner.

The key to finishing Steven’s quilt was facing reality and realizing that the pattern I’d originally planned was never going to happen.   This is actually the same pattern I used for Poppy’s quilt, and you’ll likely see it again. . . and again. . . and again.

Although I have to admit, I’m getting tired of quilting.   Good news for those of you who are as well: STAR test results came out today, so you can look forward to a heated Kim-rant “tomorrow.”   Teaser: I’m working on graphs right now!
