HOUSTON!!!!!!

Houston!!!!! So amazing...so FUN...so EXCITING!!!!! I am already looking forward to next October :o)




I am going to start off with my most exciting moment, Thomas Knauer! Thomas has been kind enough to share with me some of his super fun and cool fabrics from Andover Fabrics. His latest Frippery was over the top and I had to play with it IMMEDIATELY!  I knew I was going to make a quilt for his newest addition. I used Jeni Baker's giant star pattern and added a little funky scrappy twist. It was quilted by the OVER THE TOP awesome Lisa @that crazy quilt girl!!!! I love that girlie, her pink hair, her purple tutu and giving her piggy back rides ( true story and there are photos somewhere).



The quilt was made using Frippery and Kona solids. It was quilted with Aurifil 40wt using three colors.



I was able to nab it from the Andover booth ( they sure are a trusting bunch) and have the lovely Elena at Aurifil hold it up for me to grab some shots of the beautiful quilting!!!!!








I was also lucky enough to play with Savannah Bop! I made this adorable bib for the wee one too! The embroidery using Aurifil 12wt is a free pattern from Thomas on Sew Mama Sew and the bib pattern will be available soon on Pellon Projects.




I loved working on this quilt and for the record...all of my quilts are hugged before they leave me! Thank you Thomas and Congratulations to you and your beautiful family!!!!!!!
