The early bird catches the worm!

Well, the sunshine anyway!



Wonky Stripes lap quilt is finished and ready for posting off to Siblings Together. So that is kind of half a tick on the list, as I have enough fabric from Jennifer to make one more quilt.

Everything is wonky about this quilt, the stripes, the quilting....lets just pretend it was all planned, yes?!

Love how some of the birds look like they are sitting on a 'telegraph line' of quilting, that was planned too, of course.


Obligatory folded shot

And of course the hanging on a barn door shot, you all have one of these right?!

I must of course mention Jennifer, who donated the fabric and Sarah who donated the batting, without the kindness and generosity of these lovely ladies it wouldn't have been possible for me to make this, thank you.

Quilt Details:

Wonky Stripes for Siblings Together Lap Quilt
Fabric used: Donated by Jennifer, includes Erin McMorris (the only one I can pick out and name!)
Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Batting
Backed with fabric donated from Jennifer and my LQS Serendipity Patchwork & Quilting
Machine Bound
