Quilt love...

The quilt is finished.  

Around lunch time yesterday it was thrown into the wash and then the dryer to get all that soft, crinkly goodness into it.  Can't even think of using it until its all soft and crinkly.  Especially when it was expected to be used while watching Downton Abbey last night.  So awesome!  Is there anyone else starting to have issues with the fact that next week will be the last show of this season and we will have to wait a whole year again for the next?  I wasn't sure if I was the only one.

And of course I can't have just a plain backing on it.  So one lone block and left overs of a fabric roll was used to liven things up a bit.  Perfect.

 Since there was proper lighting going on in the craft room, Em's quilt was taken away from her for a few quick pics.  Here's is her triangle masterpiece in all its glory.

And the back, of course.  All polka dots, front and back.

All quilt modeling was accomplished with the help of the new shelves I finally put in the craft room.  Love them! they are so perfect when going out in the cold is just not an option.  It is so nice to be able to look over at everything and be able to see things to make choices.  Now if I can get the closet in the craft room looking half as nice.  Soon.



  1. Beautiful work!!! I always enjoy looking at Quilts. I find they are an art in itself. Plus it doesn't hurt that they keep you warm. You have done a great job again.

    Thanks for sharing with us

  2. B E A U T I F U L !!! You all are so darn talented and these quilts are amazing! Your room is so clean and organized... Okay now off to clean up my shelves...
    Have a great day buddy!

  3. Your quilt is gorgeous. The square you did on the back adds a personal touch to it. Your daughter's quilt is pretty too; she certainly has your talent. Your craft room looks great. Have a wonderful day. Heather

  4. Wow! Both quilts are gorgeous!! Your craft shelves look nice and organized. I wish I could say the same for mine. I am very sad about Downton Abbey, too. They need longer seasons!

  5. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous. And you know I think Em's is pretty amazing too. The bookcases are a nice addition and great for organizing your materials. You keep me motivated!

  6. Wow, love the quilts. They are very pretty. Also love the way you are so organized. I think I just have too much craft stuff, if that possible. lol Thanks for sharing.

  7. Oh Kar, they turned out so beautiful!!! I need to get organized with my fabrics and yarns, you have inspired me :)

  8. Loving that organisation!

  9. Oh my! Those quilts are fabulous!!!!
    It's so nice to be organised! MY craftroom has turned into a nursery so all my stash and crafty things are stuffed in boxes in the attic.
    But it's okay, with a baby on the way :)

  10. Wowzers! Both of those quilts are stunners. I've seen Em's before of course but I still marvel at it's beauty.

    Nothing better than pulling a brand new quilt out of the dryer!

  11. You already know that I love your quilting and crocheting so I'll skip straight to the problem...DOWNTON ABBEY!! I cannot believe that next week is THE last episode of the season. What's wrong with these people?! They film three episodes (that's what it seems like) and call that a season?! Harumph!
