My sister occasionally has a What's Up Wednesday on her blog. I thought it appropriate to title this post the same. Not because I have had anything quilty happening lately, but she has been busy as my personal photographer while visiting the family in Mississippi ;-)
harasses me endlessly gently reprimands me for not blogging about all of my quilts. Sometimes I forget just how many quilts I have made. Some quilts were made before I started blogging, and I have been thinking about posting about some of my earlier (like, 2 years ago...haha) quilts.
This quilt was made for my mother, Christmas 2010. The pattern is called Strip Search, which just cracks me up!!
The quilt was made during my initial quilting frenzy when I made my first, hmmm, FOUR quilts during a span of about four months. Talk about stressing out and getting very little sleep.
This was also when I realized two things...
I LOVE batiks!!
My machine HATES them...well, hates to FMQ on batiks.
I finally gave up (temporarily) on FMQing and stuck with my organic lines. I was able to finish it Christmas Eve with just a few tears of frustration and aggravation ;-)
I have to admit, I love looking at pictures of quilts taken by Rene'. She really knows how to showcase them. Or, like I often tell her, "You make my quilts look good!"
Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog! And thanks, Rene', for some awesome pictures...you are the BEST!!
