Fresh and Modern.
Black, white and red has always been a striking combination to me and although this baby quilt does have a "gothic" element to it, it's also really cute. I added a black and white polkadot binding which I love. Washing it in hot water really made the fabric tuck up into the stitches of the quilting - setting it off quite nicely. I really like how the quilting came out on this one. My Janome machine is the BEST.
Also on the table this long weekend are some cool birdies that I've cut out some great bold fabrics. Birdies are turning up everywhere - and I love them. So I decided to make a few just for fun. I vaguely remember seeing a pattern in one of my quilting magazines for a blackbird that had a beaded hanger. I'm replicating this from memory. I wish I could find the pattern - but I have about 50 quilting magazines I've saved and don't feel like sifting through them so I'm improvising.
PUPPIES My son is getting ready to head over to the house he is renting (1 block from the beach on Oak Island) in order to start college in the fall. Guess who's going with him??? Yep - Harley (the little black and white sheltie/australian shepard mix). We had the son (and his girlfriend, Lindsay) and the two pups for dinner last night and with Tobie and Gizmo in the mix - Puppy Palooza!
Because Sabrina has exams next week and then a week or so after that we are all heading in different directions of the country - we're hanging around the house this weekend. Be sure to check back Tuesday as I'm going to have a giveaway for one of the birdies that I'm putting together.
