If your name is Kelley and you're my sister - No Fair Peeking!!!

Update: The quilt is done (except for binding)! I dropped it of at Wendy's yesterday around 4 and she brought it back to me this morning at 8. Wow! I think she must have a magic wand somewhere and bippity-boppity-booed it done. And it looks amazing! If any of you need some quilting done, I'm happy to put you in touch.

I finally assembled the whole quilt top and sent it off to be quilted just this afternoon. The colors in the quilt are most like this small picture to the right (as opposed to the picture at the bottom) - very Shabby Chic.

There's no way I would have ever finished this quilt without the excellent help, suggestions, and very important piece of blue fabric from my friend Chris. Many thanks Chris!

I wish she kept a blog so I could give you a link - because all her quilts are amazing! The next best thing: a link to a fun blog she told me about - Little Cotton Rabbits

I hope to get this bound in time for Christmas.

Thanks for the compliment, Corrie. So relieved to see there was enough blue to go around! It looks great. And those Trash Ties . . . I was eyeing them all night. Stocking stuffers?

So beautiful! Is that all hand appliqued? My favorite! I can't believe you are giving that quilt away.

I looked at those trash ties too. What a great idea! But I'm wondering why we can't just make our own. It doesn't look complicated. I think I'm going to whip up a batch.

I think it's unanimous. The quilt is beatiful!

Corrie said...

Chris - I even had enough blue left over to applique little circles to the points of the diamond in the center block. Come see it!

Jennifer Lavender said...

That is definitely a very beautiful quilt. What a lucky sister you have.

Wow - amazing quilt! I am constantly amazed by what you are able to do and the grace with which you are able to do it. I love your organizing ideas, but I also just find it inspirational that you can do all you do. It keeps me going some days!

BTW, you've been tagged!

I was wondering where you were living.... because if you're in my neighborhood...I'd be interested in being in touch with your quilting gal. I've got several ready for gifts...but dunno a quilter!
I live in Eutaw.
U in my State?

Corrie said...

lammy - yes I am. Email me from one of the comments I've left at your blog.

She is leaving Dec 13 so I'm not sure how crazy her schedule is until then - I got extremely lucky. Thank goodness!
