Marmalade Memories

I can't believe it's been a year!  I did finally finish the Marmalade Malady quilt.  It's gorgeous.  I mean, it's full of that 1/4 inch problem, but it's soft, it's warm, and it's in a very loving home.

I took a week off from work last November to move and get settled and use up some vacation time before the end of the year.  Oooo.  Can I just say?  And I know all you quilters out there know how delicious it is to sew in the winter compared to the summer....

...It was magical...

Anyway, so I had moved and had all this extra space to spread out and leave my projects out in the open.  My dining room is my sewing room.  I should probably get a dining room table for when I have friends over, but it all ends up working out.

What was I saying?

I made this quilt for some dear dear friends.  A bunch of us signed the edges of it with thanks and love notes.  It has a permanent home on their bed.  I love this fabric because it reminds me of the friends.  I've been able to add a splash of it here and there in other projects for friends.

Design wall in the beginning stages. 

Ha!  Wine glass on the ironing board.  I must have been finished for the night. 

I didn't do a traditional border, I layered it, sewed it inside out, and then flipped it.  I found bobby pins helpful instead of pins.  It came out to be 90"x90".

On the table, ready for signatures in fabric marker.
