HAPPY NEW YEAR! ^_^ My resolution this year is to finish my clamshell. Its my biggest unfinished project (king-size hand pieced applique) and I just dont give it enough time. But I will finish it! Hopefully very soon 🙂
Today im happy to share a quilt that my sister Mindy made for her boyfriend Andrew. He is a graduate from Texas Tech and loves red and black! This the quilt that we based our nephews red and black comforter quilt on, and is much much larger. Measuring about 89×95, its a little oversized for a queen. Its made with the same ‘patience’ nine patch, with solid sashing and red and black borders, all tied together with a simple black bind. Its machine quilted in the ditch, and I must say that it turned out beautiful. I love how even with the sashing the blocks turn into sort of stair-step stripes. I love this pattern!
Did I mention that this is her first quilt? It is unbelievable how amazingly she did.
I hope everyone has a wonderful year in 2012 and that everyone gets lots and lots of sewing done 🙂 Next quilt is another big one and will be up very soon!
