TGIF: Urban Home Goods Swap

I think I'm safe to post this, because the recipient is busy filming a segment for Craftsy! 

Front Range Modern Quilt Guild is hosting a holiday swap, "Urban Home Goods." Since both Amy and I missed the meeting where swap partners were assigned, we decided to partner with each other. Amy, of Stitchery Dickory Dock fame, is filming a class for Craftsy this week.  So I very much doubt that she remembered this swap. But I know she loves Denyse Schmidt fabrics, so I made her this "dresser scarf" from DS Quilts Flea Market Fancy.

Duncan approves.

 The pattern is from the August/September issue of "Quilt" magazine. It's called "Dresden Stars" and was designed by Tanya Finken.

In case you missed it, Amy made a quilt last month from Denyse Schmidt's Shelburne Falls fabrics. That's what inspired me to make her a "dresser scarf." Or dresser quilt. 

Lizzie doesn't like it when the camera flash goes off.

If you pray, pray for the Sailors of the USS George Washington who are helping to provide relief to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. Including, of course, My Little Sailor!

WIP Wednesday

Somehow I had the bright idea that the March Jelly Roll Party sample, designed by Kristy and Shayla Wolfe of "Sassafras Lane Designs" should be machine-quilted by Kristy.

Which would be fine, except in order for Kristy to quilt it and get it back to me, she needs the quilt  by Friday. This Friday!

I fell in love with this image of the quilt on their blog:

And decided I would make a batik version also.

There are 216 Flying Geese in this quilt, in case you're interested.
