|Hope you had a great Easter!|
Me: If I had to describe you in one word, then that word would be KIND.
Paul: Awww... you are so sweet
Me: Your turn.
Paul: My turn?
Me: Yes. If you had to describe me in just one word, what would that be?
Paul: Hmm... STRONG
Paul: Yes. You are STRONG.
Me: But that can be good or bad.
There was nothing left for me to say? I am glad he did not say headstrong.
Little does Paul know that this month I have been anything but strong in resisting fabric.
First, there was the fabric shopping spree at the Mook Fabric Store in Amish Country.
Then I found some amazing deals on Etsy - materialgirlchic. She has a sale section with FREE shipping at $75.
|50% off Layer Cakes - Yes, I have a plan for these!!!|
And finally, I went to Joann Fabrics and splurged only because the premium brand fabrics were half-off PLUS there was a coupon.
|Love these florals and paisleys|
|Spring has sprung|
|Cuteness & Passionate Red|
I do have a finish to share. Surrounded by scraps, a scrap vortex quilt is always in the works.
Trust me, it is the same as the one on the design wall above.
|Paul - the quilt model!|
And then, I quilted gentle curves in between those straight lines. It was fast and easy!!!
Since all my scrap vortex quilts look kinds similar, the best way to tell them apart is by the backing. So let's see the backing on this one.
No, let's get closer.
Two out of these three fabrics came to me in a scrap bag and I was not too fond of them. Combined with another orange/fall fabric from my stash and a bright orange near-solid, resulted in this pieced backing.
Here is the funny part - Paul thought that the backing was the front :-)
I used the same bright orange for the binding.
What shall I call this one? Already have Side Effects and Whatever Works. I may be getting low on names for my scrap vortex quilts.
I know I am so full of it :-D
Actually, I see leaves and some fall colors on the front as well. So it is settled - Falling For You.
Falling For You finished at 40" by 44" and it is my seventh finish of 2017. Yay!!!
But that is not all.
Remember this scrap vortex in the works picture from my last post?
I finished this flimsy!!!
This is a separate quilt from Falling From You. Yes, they all look the same.
Here is Paul holding it up.
|Flimsy Finish - To be Named|
This is what he had to say.
Why are you photographing this?
It is not even finished.
No batting. No backing. No binding.
It is just patchwork.
It is a flimsy finish, I clarified. And I was laughing and rolling my eyes at the same time.
With a finished quilt and a finished flimsy I am declaring that I have achieved my April OMG!!!
And here they are both side by side, to prove that they are indeed two separate pieces.
I will be linking with Elm Street Quilts for the April OMG completion and all my favorite linky parties.
I wish that you are surrounded by kindness and hope you stay strong through tumultuous times. I look forward to you thoughts.
