My lion quilt top is complete!!!! I absolutely love how it turned out and can't wait for it to be quilted! This went together quickly. Probably because I was rather obsessed and was working on it in most every spare moment. What is hard to convey in the photo is the size-- 60" x 60". It's practically as tall as me! I'm hoping to enter this at Quilt Expo this year! ☺
Over Christmas, I added the borders and quilted my Strawberry Quilt. I'm making this as a donation to Lutherdale's annual quilt auction. It seems perfect for a little girl to take naps under, play picnic on top of and just to decorate a room! Hopefully it gets a high bid! Just a little bit of binding left before this is complete. I'll see if I can get better pictures at that point.
Now that the lion is off the design wall, I can use it for other things. I have another charity quilt I would like to finish up and send on it's way. I assembled the top 2 years ago? And it has been hibernating in my closet. Instead of purchasing yardage for the backing, I've decided to purge my stash of fabrics I am not in love with anymore. That is how the top started!! I had some fabrics that were taking up precious space, so I started making large nine-patched for a 'disappearing' quilt.
The back is all improv with 2 orphan blocks. It is about 75% complete. This quilt will be part of Mad City Quilt Guild's donations to Project Linus.
Lastly, I've started pulling fabric for a baby quilt. I'm quite excited to get this started!
