A quilt and a winner

The LAMQG had its second anniversary meeting on Monday night. It’s crazy how quickly those two years have gone by and how much The MQG has grown since then!

We coordinated an anniversary swap and I was sewing for Liz. Her adorable little baby girl is right at the age where they can always use one more quilt to put on the floor, so I quickly put together a little one for her.

I had to use scraps she gave me and I could only add one new fabric. Obviously I added the yellow. Oh and I cheated and added the binding too. Figured a stripy binding was worth a little cheating!

And thanks for all of your comments on the Quilt Retro blog tour post. I used the random number generator and the winner is Anita! Congrats and keep an eye out for an email from me.

    I am completely in love with this! I think I need more friends that want me to make quilts for them. I don’t need many more myself, which makes it hard sometimes for me to make them. I really hate for things to sit around unused!

    That’s gorgeous! & the stripy binding was definitely worth a bit of cheating!

      Thanks Jenny!! I just checked my Kona card and it’s closest to Curry on there but I know it’s not Curry… it’s definitely a shade yellower than Curry is.

    Oh, P.S. Thank you for showing me how to photograph my quilts when no one’s home to help! Excellent.

    Darling quilt – the striped binding was so worth bending the rules a bit!
