The finished quilt measures approx 38 in X 42 in.
Silly story #4: A dog, giraffe, and roster took a drive in the BelAir to hear the pink bunnies band. What a grand time was had by all.
I am a plastic surgeon in Little Rock, AR. I used to "suture for a living", I continue "to live to sew". These days most of my sewing is piecing quilts. I love the patterns and interplay of the fabric color. I would like to explore writing about medical/surgical topics as well as sewing/quilting topics. I will do my best to make sure both are represented accurately as I share with both colleagues and the general public.
This child’s dress made using patriotic fabric given to me by a friend was made for a niece who recently turned 3 yrs old.
These surgeon’s caps were recently made on a very rainy Saturday. Not sure who will receive them.
My blogging/twitter friend @purplesque is pregnant with her first child. I have had a lot of fun piecing this crazy quilt top for her baby. It is machine pieced. Now to mark it and do the machine quilting.
As our mutual friend @scanman suggested, a chocolate frog (well, a batik fabric with chocolate background and tan frog) was included. Also, note the owls, the moon, a giraffe, Tigger & Piglet, cats, and dogs.
I finished and have shipped the quilt (see earlier post for back story) to someone I know will cherish it. The finished quilt measures 56 in X 74 in. A nice size to curl up under on the sofa and read books/blogs or watch movies.
Here is a photo showing the originally planned background fabric and the substitution used for two blocks.
I'm not sure which butterfly I like the best, but I love the fabrics in this one.
