2 updates in a week?


Well, I have another quilt top to show you.  My Godchild is getting married Sept 3.  I am buying a gift but I thought a quilt would be special too.  I was 15 when she was born.  I can't believe she is getting married.  So excited! 
A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Jeni Baker at one of her fabric launch parties.  She is a great girl. So sweet.  I just loved all of her fabrics.  She has decided not to create fabric any longer but is big into making patterns.  Last year she came out with a book, Patchwork Essentials-The Half Square Triangle.  I just love this book.  Sometimes it is hard to decide on a pattern.  And I am always looking for easy!  I started this quilt on Friday.  It's her pattern Opposites Attract.

I found 84 different fabrics to make 168 blocks.  Sara was born in 1985 so I will use a different color for the back to give me 85 fabrics in this quilt.
I was able to finish this last night.  It was a great process and I will be making more just like it.  Is it sad that I have 85 different fabric scraps?  I could probably make 5 of these quilts and still not run out of fabric. 
I will be quilting this on my home sewing machine.  Wish me luck!
