It's Official

I just finished the insides of the pattern today and dropped them off at Cottonpicker's this afternoon. From Grammy With Love is officially on the market. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I do. I promise you it is as simple as they come with a few tips and tricks that you may find helpful in other projects.

Here are some more pictures of From Grammy With Love. I had so much fun doing this photoshoot that I hope all of my future shoots will be as enjoyable. I took these photos at my Nana's house (how perfect!) and I couldn't have asked for it to go better. My Nana has wonderful floor to ceiling bay windows on the front of her house. Now I'm not so sure about everyone else, but around here in Northeast Ohio we don't get many sunny days in winter which seems to last 8 months out of the year. I hoped and wished on a prayer that I would just go and take the photos and things would turn out and they did! The sun was perfect and as soon as we stopped taking the pictures, the sun went away.

I think this also in a weird way was almost like a wedding. Here, see if you can follow my thinking. I borrowed my mom's antique crib for the photo shoot (something old) to hang the quilt off of (something new). I borrowed the animals from Nana (something borrowed) and used Gpa Joe's blue blanket in the bottom of the crib (something blue). I just thought it was fun. My mind just works this way, I can't explain it.

I made the color option quilt out of fun bright bug fabrics. I absolutely love love love the 1930's fabrics, but you have to admit, it looks girly. I wanted to see what this pattern would look like in brighter primary colors and more boyish. I have loved this bug fabric since the day it came into the quilt store and I needed to do something with it. I hope you like it, it's definitely not the typical color scheme I've done in the past, but it was a fun change. Especially in the winter, I think I make some of my most colorful quilts when everything outside is white and grey.

Like I said before, this quilt is currently hanging at the Lake Metroparks Farmpark Quilts 2010 Show. The show just opened last week and it is marvelous as ever. Don't forget to make it out to the show and also try to make it out there for vendor weekend (March 6 & 7). There will be atleast 14 vendors there with all sorts of goodies that I'm sure you'll want to gobble up. Make a day of it, bring you're friends and have lunch at the cafe, the caterer is phenomenal!

Alright, what else is going on? Still working on other up and coming quilt projects. A little applique, some small things, other big things. Basically I like to hae multiple projects going at the same time, each in a different stage of the quilt making process or a different technique because I love them all so much and it's hard to pick just one to work on. And it works out most of the time so if my time is broken up or like last week when my machine had to go to the doctors, I had a backup project. And let me tell you, I forgot how much I enjoy applique! I haven't done any of it for about a year and I am enjoying it so.

Let me know what you think of From Grammy With Love and if you've made it out to Farmpark to see it and the other 200 some quilts hanging there. Thanks for all of your support and hope to see you soon!
