Missouri Star Quilt Company Friday tutorial was for a simple ‘wave’ type quilt that I thought would be perfect for my
stinker Sami a new quilt. She hasn’t had one for a while so I thought this pattern would be good for her. Jenny’s pattern showed more of a wavy effect but for some reason I didn’t go as wavy. The next one I do will not be wavy, just straight across.
I purchased a cute pattern called Speak Love recently from Slice Of Pi Quilts Blog Spot that showed the white area used for messages. This is where I got the idea of putting a little message in the this quilt. Check out Laura’s patterns. She is so creative and I always get so many ideas from her blog. I plan on using Speak Love pattern for my new great-grandbaby that is due in June. (Oops…that is a surprise, so Glenda don’t tell)
The letters are not permently attached and only used for the photo op. This way they can be changed as needed. With the new great-grand it can be used as a monthly age progression quilt showing the picture at age one month, two month, any special occasion, etc.
On Sami’s quilt I used a charm pack in American Basics from Windham Fabrics and Kona White. Of course, I still haven’t quilted it yet. I have added it to my stack of tops to be quilted. I am waiting for the quilt police to haul me away for getting so far behind.
Sami was SO GOOD this time. As you can see when I put the quilt down for the picture she was so eager to jump on it to check it out but she restrained herself, almost. As soon as I said it was OK, she bounced over and sat in her picture posing position. She is such a diva!
