The quilt blocks are Granny Square quilt blocks by Blue Elephant Stitches. There's a great tutorial here.
The pillowcase was mine when I was a little girl. Really neat to have S using it now all these years later. And I was lucky to find the matching bed sheet at Savers in great condition!
Really happy with the way the binding turned out.
Here is a bad picture of the quilt back so you can see how I did the quilting.
Remember this Waste Knot quilt way back when I first started blogging? In fact, it was a year ago this month! Well, it's still here, unfinished and waiting... I can't seem to figure out what to do about the center. I have two pinks so I think I might add another green. I would love to add black but I think it might be too much for this quilt. I tried a block with several colors but that was a flop. Ideas?
I'm loving Savers still but I don't get there as much as I once did now that I'm working at a quilt store. I try not to miss out on the 50% off days that occur every couple months or so. This is my latest and greatest find - some cowboy Moda fabric from 1997. A great selection and a ton of it that would make a great quilt for my dad (someday) who collects Marx cowboy figures.
And on the same day, I found these wonderful 30s repro fabrics in black, red, purple, and yellow! I love these small prints and after doing my Waste Knot quilt my collection was really low. I haven't been able to find much of the black color so I was super excited! These were a great find for me and at an incredible price. And they were all pre-washed! What a blessed day!
My Mouse in Hammock ornament is coming along. I should be finished by the end of the month as planned. I had a terrible cold last week that ended up in some sort of infection. Needless to say, I was out of it all week. Here are some samples waiting to be finished. For the pattern, I am including a few pictures of finished ones in different styles - traditional, vintage, and modern. Please check back for the completed pattern which will be listed on my etsy shop. Everyone needs a sleeping mouse in a hammock on their Christmas tree.
I am linking up to WIP over at Freshly Pieced and We Did It! at Sew Much Ado.
