    My first quilt just for me!

    I've made a few table runners and quilts for others, but wanted to make one just for me. I chose Jenny's Herringbone and used Daydream fabric. I sent it off to MSQC for quilting with champagne bubbles (I think because I love champagne!). I didn't want the quilting to be too tight, so this was just right. I have extra fabric from the backing that I will use to make a valance for my bedroom. I'm very excited to have this completed. I owe all this to a friend who introduced me to MSQC (although she wouldn't take over my charge card bill!!). I keep buying and tagging the material with the name of the pattern I wish to make and for whom. It will all get done eventually. I'm still working a full time job and don't know about you, but I just can't sit down to sew every single night. Housework, time with friends and line dancing/west coast swing get in the way. I like to say that I'm purchasing now while I am employed so that when I'm retired and "living on a limited income", I'll have plenty to do. HA HA> Hope you like my pics and check out my album in the gallery as well.

          What a happy quilt. I love the Champagne bubbles quilting motif you picked. It is perfect with that fabric.

            Oh wow, your quilt is so pretty! Congratulations on a job well done. Sometimes you just have to step back and say the next quilt I make is mine, all mine!!! And it feels so good to keep something that you worked so hard on!

                    I love this quilt! The colors and fabrics are beautiful, it's a light and airy feeling quilt. I work too so know what you mean about time to work on quilts when there are so many other things to do also. I just do the best I can.

                          You did good. I think we all need to make at least one for ourselves while we are making quilts, runners, pillow cases for others. Personally, I have made myself a few since coming to MSQC. LOL. I've made plenty for others, but I keep about every other one too!.

                            Your quilt is gorgeous and the champagne quilting pattern is wonderful. I'm a big fan of Kate Spain fabrics. Her color schemes are always spot on.
