Woohoo! I am so glad I was able to finish this quilt for the hubby before Christmas. Just in the Nick of time! I personally think that is where Old St Nick gets his name! And this was no small task since I only started it on December 21st! And since I totally made up the design as I went along. And it turned out wayyyy bigger than I had planned!
The fussy cut tumblers were really fun. I especially like the "Late and Dirty" one .It describes my hubby to a tee since he is usually coming from the Barn or hay fields!
I don't know if those Duck boys noticed, but there are some pretty colorful geese flying overhead! I don't use Cheddar fabrics enough. I really like the color it adds!
A very sweet friend, Chris, (actually she is an Angel), quilted it for me. I chose a Maple Leaf pantograph. I really love how it turned out!
I am not crazy in love with the backing but it was what I had on hand that wasn't pink or floral . It is flannel, which I love. So it will be warm and toasty in the truck!
I used Aurifil 4173, which was a perfect match . Overall I guess the quilt makes me Happy, Happy Happy! (especially that I finished in time for Christmas)
Now I need to choose a name. I didn't have time to make the label before I took it to Chris for quilting so I will just hand stitch the label to the back. I was thinking maybe " Low Tech Livin' " or "Low Tech Life in a High Tech World". What do you think? Any Duck Dynasty fans out there? Any name suggestions?
Merry Christmas dear friends! I am so grateful to have ya'll in my life. One of my New Year resolutions is to spend more time blogging! I hope each and everyone of you have a wonderful Holiday season filled with love,good health, friendship and joy!
Merry Christmas ya'll!
