Press Pause

Earlier this week I learned that quilt #2 
was to be delivered this friday!
That gave me only 4 days to pull it off.
So, quilt #1 was put aside for the week.
I'll get back to that one next week.

I used my Brody pattern and copied borrowed this color palette
from the lovely Sew Katie Did.
She made a fabulous triangle quilt some time ago and 
I have been drooling over it ever since!

Anywhoodle, back to the matter.....
this quilt is for my brother in law
(I'm 1000% positive he will not see this post).
He's all young and single and hip and cool!

I'm hoping that he'll find a girl he's crazy about 
and use it for some quality snuggle time.
Tomorrow, I'll be binding, wrapping and delivering it.

The shame!

I don't normally make any Christmas presents.
I feel horribly guilty about this when I see 
all of my quilty friends making such lovely things.

Christmas is pretty stressful on it's own without adding to it 
the anxiety of sewing late into the night 
So I just don't.

But that all changes this year!
I am making, not one, but two rather large quilts 
for loved ones this year.
First up.....

I spent some time on Saturday basting this quilt
since it was horribly cold and gray outside.
I have had these fabs on ice for the last 2 years.
I won't say who it's for just incase.

Now it's time to get busy top stitching!
Thanks for popping in :-)
