This cute quilt was made by Jeanette. She made it for her grand-daughter.
She wanted it to look like a Holly Hobby style quilt and I think that she succeeded.
What a great view of the entire quilt top. Can you imagine piecing all
those tiny pieces? It was definitely a labor of love.
Can you see how small the pieces are for this block? This is one of
the 2 different blocks that made up the entire quilt.
Here is the second block that makes up the quilt. Again, alot of tiny
pieces sewn together. I don’t think that I have the patience for that much
piecing any more.
Here is a close up of the border section. The blue floral fabric fits nicely with
the rest of the colors of this quilt.
The backing fabric matches the front too. Jeanette wanted a pink polyester
thread for the top and back. It does look nice for a tween bed. Jeanette also
chose a “Daisy” panto for the quilt.
Last week, I managed to complete 2 fabric postcards. I reproduced one that I
had made for Janet, over at whatcomesnext.blog. There was a fabric postcard
challenge for Canada Day. The theme being “maples.” Here is a second one
because the first one was misplaced, stolen or lifted on its way to BC. I guess
I should take that as a compliment, as it was good enough to steal.
Summer has me thinking about flip flops so I made a postcard of flip flops.
One of these days, I will make a quilt depicting flip flops. I love them but I
don’t even own a pair.
The tongs on the right side are a bit smaller than the left but I will say that they
are 2 different sizes of flip flops. It is good to share mistakes that we make, right?
And lastly, I went down to Toronto last week, to the Ripley’s Aquarium. I was
very impressed with the design and layout of the building. There is also so much
for young kids to do-crawl into holes, touch wierd fish and sea animals and
activities for them to participate in. No, I am not being paid to say all this. Then
there is a conveyor belt you stand on and go through a glass tunnel with fish,
sharks, a saw fish, and other marine life swimming all around you. It is totally
freaky when the sharks are swimming right towards you. The hair on the back of
your neck stands up for a little while. It is amazing!!!! I took so many
pictures, it was crazy! Can you tell that I enjoyed it?
This is one of the eels that lives in the huge 20-30 ft high tank. Isn’t the coloring
on him gorgeous? I couldn’t help but take his photo. Maybe I will make a
postcard of him and send to my dad.
Have a great week!
