Button Up Buttercup

>> Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Wow, is Jessi a lucky girl! She got two quilts in a matter of three days. First, "Clara", and now "Button Up Buttercup". Someone in my quilt guild showed this pattern about a year ago, and I loved it. So, when Moda's Spring Fling line came out, I thought it would be perfect for my girls. (Now, keep in mind this quilt is a year in the making--that's about how fast my kids get their projects from me because I take on too many personal projects and am busy quilting for customers.) Anyway, after I was sufficiently tired of hearing Jessi whine for her "Clara" quilt, I decided to push myself to get this one done. Maybe if she had this one, she wouldn't be so anxious to get the one from the LQS, right? Well, I finished this quilt about the same time she finally was reunited with "Clara". Go figure.

This is a closeup of the ragged flower in the center. I did mostly a stipple and swirl pattern in the center of the quilt, the borders were flowers, leaves, and swirls.

The back is minkee and I did it in Jessi's other favorite color: blue. Mmmmmm . . . blue minkee, so soft.

And finally, here is a close up of the borders.

About . . .

Quilting is good therapy. It all started about 18 years ago when I had two little kiddos running around the house in diapers and spent my days as a stay-at-home mom. I soon discovered that I needed something more interesting than sorting laundry to keep me going. That's when I discovered the joy of quilting. Now, years down the road, I've added another kiddo to the mix. We've said goodbye to diapers and hello to driver's licenses and college (yikes!), and I have many quilts behind me. I now have a studio in my basement with a long-arm machine where I keep myself busy quilting for others and for myself, too, when I get the time. I hope you enjoy looking at what I've been working on!
