I'd Rather be Quilting…

my crazy pasttime

Sometimes it just comes together…..

on April 10, 2013

Last fall I got to spend some time in our home town, which meant I was able to stop at Pieceful Pastime, which is a wonderful quilt shop you should check out. I love to wander around this shop. I found a pattern called Cheddar n Crackers which calls for a charm pack (a precut pack of 5 inch squares of fabric, usually about 40). The pattern was very interesting so I thought I would look at the charm packs. I found one that I really liked and knew that I had no specific reason for this quilt but I liked it and just felt like I needed to do it. Then I found a gorgeous tan/gold solid fabric that coordinated with the charm pack.

Later that night we went out for supper with our great friends, Steve and Velda. We have been friends so long that we no longer count the years. While talking that night I knew I would take the fabric purchased earlier and make a quilt for their daughter, Kyla. I have known Kyla almost all her life, she is a very special young lady.

This is the finished quilt top hanging on my longarm. As I am knew to this blogging I am learning to take better pictures. All of the solid fabric is called negative space and lets the quilter have fun.

Because the geometric patterns on the fabric I decided to put squares and rectangles in the negative space. I loved it. And so did Kyla.

I know that every time she crawls under this quilt I am giving her a hug. It is almost as good as being there.

Thanks for looking. I will get better with the pictures. I hope that you have a blessed week, remember to tell your family and friends that you love them.
