I really like the simplicity and quietness of this quilt. It is small, 7 1/2" x 14". It reminds me of sea shells, hence the name. I don't like the whole idea of naming quilts, maybe I should just go with quilt #----? I also am not a label maker. I take a Sharpie and write my name etc somewhere on the back of the quilt, then hit it with the iron. My feelings are a label can be taken off, writing straight on the quilt with a Sharpie is there forever!
If you remember from an earlier post, I received these is the mail as a gift. I have another one too but am saving it for later. If you are interested in finding out more about these you can go to Umbrella Prints (I love the name).
They are also having a Pinterest Contest, check it out!
In keeping with the simplicity of the quilt, I did some straight line quilting that does not take away from the fabrics and has a modern feel.
It really just evolved. I started sewing like size pieces together.
Cut them apart here and there...
then sewed them back together in another spot. Sorry for the shadow, it was a rainy day.
The other day I was watching my granddaughter, Maddy.
I was parked in their cul de sac that is a no parking area, but there is no other place to park. There was myself and 3 other cars there.
While we were upstairs changing into her play clothes, we notice a police car in the cul de sac. Oh no I am going to get a ticket I said to Maddy. The following conversation went like this......
Maddy---What's a ticket mom mom?
Kelly---They put a piece of paper on your car and you have to send the police man money.
Maddy---and then does he get to go shopping?
I almost fell off her bed laughing!
