Botany

I've been slack huh!?!
Well, as far as the blog is concerned, I have been.
It's the wedding plans! There are so many things to do and organise!
There is only 10 weeks to start fights with people so we can keep the guest list small enough that we don't have to sell any of our organs to pay for it!
I have been sewing a wee bit.
I have a few quilts to show but only one at a time.
(This is me trying to make sure I blog more regularly.)
First up we have my Botany Half square triangle quilt.
I really should start to think of names for these instead of the fabric line..


I tried a few different poses for this lovely little thing.
Her she is on my painting stand.


Here is the good ole chair in front of the lemon tree.


And here she is on the clothesline. I can't quite manage to get that "blue steel" look from my quilts yet.One day...
Each finished block is 16", so she is a great size!
Fabric is the lovely Botany by Lauren and Jessi Jung.
I am really happy with this one, except... Not sure about all that white. I don't know where she will eventually live but she sure is pretty to look at huh?

Ha ha ha, your "blue steel" comment cracked me up! My favorite pic is the one on the clothesline because I can really get a feel for what the quilt looks like. Oh, and I love all the white! It makes the quilt look nice and fresh without being too busy.

LOL! What happened to the calm bride, just looking forward to her day with Elvis??? Poor Kelli! Have a drink...it will also help pickle those organs in case you need to sell them later.

p.s. Quilt top looks beautiful, as usual. Love the white.

Only 10 weeks to go - it’s getting closer.

Love the quilt. I love all the white. I seem to be doing lots of 'white' quilts too.

I can't wait to see what else you have come up with!

Kirsten said...

Gorgeous! And I am definitely a fan of the white! Can't wait to see your other projects, and good luck with the wedding plans!

I love this quilt!! The white is perfect!! You made me laugh when you said you've got ten weeks to start fights with people.
