Today's main project was a doll sized quilt for a niece who is also receiving a Hidden In My Heart Doll from my shop. Oh, giddy! It is so sweet and fresh and vibrant. I LOVE it! Just look at that color combination!
This was my first attempt at free motion quilting...random circles. And that rickrack edge was super easy to add (after I did it wrong once)...beats taking the time to hand stitch the binding. I see all my mistakes, but I don't think my niece will even notice! She's three, after all!
I find myself moving farther and farther away from the primitive country colors I have loved for years and being pulled toward these bright, modern takes on country style. I just purchased an inspiring quilting book that features the style of the doll quilt above...a home library keeper, for sure! Imagine a whole quilt this color! How could you be gloomy on a NY winter day snuggled under something this bright and cheerful?!
Maybe I'll put that on my sewing project list for the New Year! But for now, it's back to the Christmas sewing...
