Maison De Garance Quilt .1.

The Christmas just gone I decided to make my Friends Dale and Sue a quilt for their well deserved present.   Not knowing exactly what the theme for there house is.  I thought, can’t go wrong with making a quilt out of the lovely Maison De Garance fabric by French General.    I love their entire range, so when Gail showed me this wonderful kit from Moda, “How could I resist”.  Well I couldn’t.  So I brought

I really enjoyed making this easy and relaxing quilt, and talk about left overs. I was able to make those two matching pillows and still had enough to make a few more if needed. 

Sue and Dale loved the quilt ( well Sue has taken ownership of it, so I have found a brother quilt to this one that I will have to make for his birthday). 

Last year wasn’t a big flop in the quilt making area as I thought.  

I will be back tomorrow to show you another Christmas/Birthday present I got to finish for 2010.

Take Care everyone and enjoy your stitching

A BIG Thank-you to SIL Sarah for the Super Handy Sewing Caddy.  It has been working wonderfully over January along side me.  Love the fabric and the cute little pins.  Also thank-you for my MIL Gail who gave me these fantastic 3 set vintage style box’s, and fabric.  You girls know me oh so well , made me feel so special…. It’s good to be 21 …
