IT’S A KEEPER!
In my post Ugly Sunflower Fabric Challenge I shared how a friend had challenged me to make a quilt with fabric I was going to give away. I completed the quilt top and pieced a sunflower flannel back and sent it off to the long-arm machine quilter.
The plan was when I got it back, to either give it as gift to a friend or sell it on the tierneycreates Etsy shop. That was the plan, until I got it back from the long-arm quilter, and fell in love with it!
My long-arm quilter, Betty Anne Guadalupe of Guadalupe Designs, did a sweet all-over flower quilting pattern. I sat under the cozy quilt (with the sunflower flannel) while sewing down the binding (we did have the A/C on) and decided it needed to become part of my “quilt family”.
So it is staying in my home, and will be nested on the top of one of the overstuffed reading chairs for cozy winter tea and reading sessions. If we lose heat this summer, I can pile the quilts on top of me and stay warm!
This quilt was one of the 5 quilts I got back from the long-arm quilter that needed binding put on and sewn down to be completed as I shared in the post Progress and Fear. I have completed a second quilt and have 3 more to go. The remaining 4 quilts I will make myself list on the tierneycreates Etsy shop as originally planned. Maybe.
