Here is the first panel all finished, yeah!!! This is the top, only 2 sides and the bottom left, lol.
Don't faint, I actually have a finished quilt. This is Gatsby and the fabric is by Timeless Treasures. I made it into a queen size so it would fit the bed.
This is a little Christmas tree made with yoyo makers. The dingy thing on the top is some yarn I was messing with trying to make a pom pom. I took this to my Tuesday quilter's meeting and some of the girls made some. We have little demos from members ever so often and I figured it was my time.
This is as far as I have gotten on Figgy Pudding. I am determined to get it done in the next couple of weeks so I can send it to the quilters. Wish me luck.
Just a word to the wise, if you have bought a kit for this quilt, be sure you check your yardage. The instructions for it call for 44 inch wof, and the only way you get that is if you don't cut off the selvedges. It is a Moda pattern, and I am not real happy about that. I do not want selvedges in my quilt, so I have had to buy extra fabric to make it to suit. Since I am making it larger than the pattern calls for anyway, it isn't too much of a problem, but just keep the measurements in mind when you cut, especially the background. I just love this quilt however.
I took a class Friday on Quilted Postcards. Just as soon as I get mine finished I will share it with you. It was so much fun. The teacher was Bonnnie Sable, who published a book on them called Positively Postcards. Check her out at http://www.quilted-postcards.com/. Great teacher and a great class!!! Thank you again, Bonnie!
