If you missed my last post, this one is for my wild thing for Christmas, and it was made entirely in secret. That's a little bit hard to do around here because he's pretty observant. Even though the sewing happened while he was at a retreat this weekend and finished while he was at school, every single incriminating scrap had to be thrown away in the outside trash. He can spot LSU colors from a mile away.
I pieced the backing with some leftovers, of course, and framed all of the busy pattern with a solid Kona Purple binding.
A snuggle with a quilt is almost as good as a hug from mom (though I still steal those when I can), and it makes my heart happy to know that he will treasure this quilt for years and years to come.
So, before we link up this week, let's check out some of the awesomeness from our last party. Carole at From My Carolina Home linked up this perfectly pretty Autumn Jubilee table topper-
This lovely is from Myra at Busy Hands Quilts, and it is her brand new pattern, called Castle Dreams.
I love this In the Pink quilt from Kris at Sew Sunshine.
and finally, I cannot help myself this week. I have to show this improv stunner, called Crown of Orchids by Jess at Quilty Habit.
There is so much fantastic eye candy every single week! Time to link up your latest projects!
1. You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!
*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop" when selecting your thumbnail photo. For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work! :)
