the fact that I haven't blogged since May. I'll give no excuses . . . you ask no questions, ok? ;) (I just don't want you to know that I'm lazy!)
I have actually finished some things, though! I'll do it all a bit at a time so as not to overwhelm you!
First, I'll show you the quilt for my dad's 60th birthday!
I've been wanting to do a triangle quilt for a while now. I used the tutorial from Fancy Tiger Crafts!
The triangles are a mixture of green, gray, and black Kona solids I had lying around (sorry, I can't remember exactly which ones) and an Architextures print by Robert Kaufman. The back is an old gray sheet (so it's super soft)!
For the label, I used a tea-towel with a calendar on it I bought from Spoonflower. I did the same thing on S's birthday quilt! (2013 is a big year! My niece was born, my husband turned 30, my MIL and dad turn 60 and my grandmother turned 90!)
He really liked it! My measurements were a bit off, so it's kind of skinny, but so is he, so it works! ;)
I'll show you more next time!
PS: for posterity sake, I completed this quilt on August 2!
