How cute did she package it? She said that she got the keychain from Amish Country.
And look at my loot! The bag is adorable! And let me tell you, she hand stitched the fabric around the handles, and you CANNOT see a stitch! Wow! I was so impressed. Wonderful workmanship. Thank you again, Stephanie!
Now for sneak peak. I told you that I started this quilt on the weekend, and got all of the middle part of it pieced.
I have to admit, after getting to this point, I wasn't sure if I really liked it. It was a bear to piece. I had to lay out all of the pieces on a flannel board, which I really don't have, but had improvise with a piece of flannel that really wasn't big enough. I then took the pieces off of the flannel one by one and pinned in a long strip, because I was afraid that I wouldn't get them sewn in the right order unless I did that. I'm not very good at keeping pieces in order, and this quilt really requires that they stay in the right order.
Then I got the borders on.
And I am in hot love. I know that this picture does not do it justice. It such a great top, however, that I wish you could see it in person! The colors are just fabulous. Here's a close up of the borders, I think the colors are better in this picture.
It is just so wonderful!
I used the Oak Street Stacked Cakes pattern (the picture on my pattern, however, is different that the picture in this link). I also used (as most of you knew) Urban Chiks' 1974 fabric. I used a jelly roll and some additional fabric that I got from Z&S Fabrics (LOVE that store).
Now that I finished the top, I have to start on The Costume. Wish me luck.
