I finished a quilt for my bed this week.
I used two layer cakes of Kate Spain's Fandango for a 72 x 90 quilt for my bed. You can click on the labels section on the left of this site to see some of the progress pictures.
Ok, now for the story of the label. One of our favorite authors as kids was Bill Peet. So when my sister had kids, I tracked down some of his books. The one we read all the time is titled No Such Things. Everyone in the family was assigned an animal from the book. My mom is a blue-snouted Twump, the middle nephew is a pie-faced Pazeek, one sister is aspooky-tailed Tizzy while the other is a great Gullagaloop. I lucked out with the cover creature, the fancy Fandango. So when I found out that Kate Spain's new line (new at the time anyway) was called Fandango, I knew I had to make a quilt for me out of it. I printed up the poem and the picture at Spoonflower for a label. Please ignore the part that says I made this in Sept 10, that's when I thought I would finish it.
I'm linking up with the Blogger's Quilt Festival (check out tons of other quilts, I find a lot of new blogs to follow here) and Finish it Up Fridays (hosted by one of the nicest bloggers ever). This is my 13th finished quilt this year, yay!
