Our days are in the 100 degree range here right now, so binding the quilt that just came back is not on my list until cooler weather arrives, but it is cute! It's one of the quilts I pattern tested for Sue Abrey at QUILT TIMES awhile back. The pattern is called Red Sprinkles. We dubbed my version Honey Bee Sprinkles.
Since we have a bee theme going on I requested this panto with bees on it! I had no idea the motif would be as large as it is, but we're loving it! My husband likes that there are stingers on the little bee butts!
It is backed with flannel 'cuz I wanted as much snuggle power as I could get into it without going all Minkee on it.
I mentioned somewhere in the last post or two that I had done some recent pattern testing. It was Charming Pachyderms, a new Quilt Doodles pattern by that Cindy wanted to have ready by Quilt Market. To see the original pattern, including her cute pudgy little elephant and enter to win the pattern or the fabric to make it with click HERE! Here's my version.
I love her little elephant, but since I used fabric I have on hand, that has a bunny theme, I'm thinking the peek a boo applique will wind up being a bunny, rather than the elephant. It's a quick, easy baby quilt that doesn't come off looking like a quickie! It can be done in a multitude of fabric themes and I'm contemplating primary colors on a second version.
The top secret baby projects have been sent away to be quilted, as the baby shower date has been moved up into August. Once those were in the mail, I rushed through getting Miss Butterfly Quilt's 2016 birthday present done. I did some experimenting on this 3rd version of Tuffet making, and there are some things I would have liked to have redone a little, but time was of the essence and her birthday fell within one of my work weeks so time was at even more a premium!
I couldn't resist the gorgeous knotted head on the tassel...it was a must add!
I spray painted them with black hammered finish paint.
Now her roommate wants one!
Today is the beginning of my 10 day stretch off and I have to catch up on Buttermilk Basin's "Let It Snow" free BOM. I did get the 2nd T done, but the S for Snow & Sled have been out a week and I have it traced onto fusible but haven't picked the wool yet.
Grammas work is never done!
