Like most quilters, any quilt I make generally heads out the door faster than a kid who wants to be anywhere but home with Mom the Dud. With a milestone birthday quickly approaching, I decided to remedy that little situation.
Is it tacky that I’m doing a DIY gift? Who cares! I’m doing it anyway!
I intend to snip off the ends so everything’s even (unlike my last haircut) and the whole shebang will get a really wide white border. I foresee straight-line quilting in its future. We’ll see how that turns out as I’ll be quilting it New Year’s Eve while partying with my Mama. Can you say ‘margarita machine’?
I suppose now would be a good time to mention that I’ve never been a fan of pink and yet, here I am, making a pink one. Crazy lady! But it’s batiks (my favorite) and it has lots of orange (also a favorite) so it’ll all work out in the end.
I haven’t landed on a name for it yet but hope to have one by the time it’s finished.
I’m linking to Richard Quilts!
Happy Friday, y’all!
