Hey Elton John...Wanna Buy a Quilt? Got your 'Candle in the WInd' right here!
I don't sew much in the summer months...unless it's something for a swap, freelance toy design projects, or a little something for my babygirl.
To me, sewing just feels like a fall through spring craft to be doing...more cozy like. Now that fall is upon us, I'm feeling pressed to dig out this project of mine from this past spring...to finally quilt & bind it...but when will I have the time?
I might be more motivated say if someone like Elton John called me up saying they wanted to buy it from me. Then I'd have a concrete deadline to get her done by at least!
I love this project dearly...and really couldn't part with it...unless it was going to someone who appreciated Marilyn Monroe as much as I do...and since Joe Dimaggio is gone...well, maybe Elton John might call!
Ironing in my kitchen...why my projects always end up in the kitchen...I just can't explain.
Detail of the back...there were so many pieces to piece!
Hanging on the line...while I tacked the backing fabric to the front....red satin...ooh la la!
Someone on craftster dot com mentioned that I should have an electric fence around my clothesline. I really got a great laugh from that!
Thank you craftsters!
It measures just under 60"
