Remember this blog post? I finally got around to cutting out all these little lovelies! I'm bringing this project with me when I go on vacation in a few weeks.
|All laid out on the cutting table|
I cut out a bunch of strips with Joannie on Monday night and then finished the rest of my cutting last night. Mike made the most delicious egg white omelets for dinner with home grown tomatoes from our garden.
|Handsome husband who cooks! Does it get any better than that?|
And check out his fabulous apron!
|We have six different kinds of heirloom tomatoes in our garden. |
They are all different colors: red, orange and green.
|I'm a sucker for anything with a bow, even if it's my own fabric!|
|Can never get enough blue and purple!!!|
|All boxed up and ready to travel!|
|Maybe this is the best photo? It's hard to get 44 batiks in one picture!|
There are a couple of very special fabrics in this quilt. I made my parents a pair of quilts 12 years ago for their 40th anniversary. My Mom and I picked out the fabrics together. I bought half yards instead of fat quarters, so I could keep half for a future quilt for myself. So there are a few of those fabrics in my future quilt. The only photo I have of my parents' quilt was in the blog several years ago, but it is extremely blurry. I'll take a new one when I visit them in Florida this winter.
Linking up on Friday to Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Crazy Mom Quilts and Richard and Tanya Quilts.
Thanks for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
