It's Friday and I am in Minneapolis for my quilt retreat! Before I left I uploaded pictures for Sew and Tell thinking I would write the post and publish on my new iPad from the road (left my laptop behind) but I guess I should have practiced beforehand as I am having issues. So excuse the lack of format....all the writing will be in one spot with pictures at the bottom.
I really love this laundry line quilt for my new laundry room. As I mentioned when I first started this quilt, the inspiration came from Jacquie and this adorable quilt. All that is left is the binding....and it needs a little something next to the laundry basket at the bottom to make it look grounded rather than seeming to float in the air....oh and I need to add little buttons on my husband's Tommy Bahama shirt....otherwise it's done ;-)
All the fabric used are scraps, even Max's bandana (see guard dog) is from one of his bandanas. I love the FSU shirt for my son Eric. This is leftover from the apron my daughter made with my mom. My daughter suggested I add "strings" for Alex's board shorts. Ally insisted on a bikini for herself, even though I added matching mother daughter dresses...not that we ever had those when she was little;-). Ally had other opinions and suggestions for this quilts ....in fact so many that it got to the point where I told her to make one herself;-)))
One aspect of this quilt I love is the addition of the three mini quilts hanging on the line. These are also from quilts made. I even pieced the backs and did some FMQ on them. I velcroed the little quilts so that I can change them out for a change of pace or seasons.
I hope you like it. I know you will see things you like at Sew and Tell Friday headquarters. Go check them out. See you Monday.
Have an amazing weekend!!!!!
