Ah, Friday. Hello, my lovely!
I managed to finish up the quilting on my older sister's quilt on Wednesday, and I should be pleased as punch, but I have approximately one million threads to bury, so it will probably take me as long to get that done as all of the quilting. *Sigh.*
In more fun news, I finished this crayon roll up for a one year old who had a party this weekend. Since she's already a bit of a girlie-girl, I went with all sorts of pink on the outside, including some leopard print, houndstooth, and big polka dots. She's possibly a little young for crayons, but I went with the fat ones that are washable, so it should be okay...right?
This project was made exclusively from scraps (yay!), and while I wish I had a better brown for my brown crayon, I think it all goes together quite well. I put this together in a few hours by trial and error, meaning I had no
idea what I was doing and kind of figured it out along the way, and my kidlets liked it, so it looks like I've got more to make in my future.
And, for a friend of mine, this mug rug. I used a few prints from Tula's Salt Water line, combined with a Bella solid and a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton. I think that's the last of that shot cotton, and I'm really quite sad to see it go. (Meaning, get more, pronto!)
I hope she likes it! She's a graduate student and a huge tea and coffee lover, and I thought it might be good for her desk. I used a block from the Lucky Stars BOM (January, I think?). It should have been the 6" version, but my printer didn't print it right, and it turned out closer to 7", but in the case of a mug rug, it worked out just fine!
I'm linking up with TGIFF at Pippa's Patch and Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts. You are too, right?
