Nat’s Quilt

I love this mix of fabric. It’s been the lock-screen on my phone for a couple of years. I snapped the photo in the store, but didn’t buy the fabric right away.
When I finally purchased it, I just hung on to it waiting for the right project.
I finally finished this quilt for my friend, Natalie, who graduated high school two years ago. Yes, I was WAY behind on this project.

 

I also finally purchased these binding clips. I consistently stab my fingers when working with a pinned binding. They’re great and no more blood!

Natalie is…..a great young woman. She’s sarcastic, somewhat pessimistic and pragmatic. I recently went with her to see the stage production of West Side Story. As we walked in, she said she didn’t even know what the story was about. I told it was basically Romeo & Juliet with music and two gangs that have a dance-off. At the end of the show, she commented how much she liked it, particularly the fact that Maria didn’t kill herself over a boy. “Juliet was such an idiot!” And that’s just one of the reasons why I love Natalie so much. She knows and speaks her mind. She loads of fun and I’m looking forward to seeing all the amazing things she’ll do in life.

  1. Love that quilt! You have the best eye for color and composition. And, from what I gather, it's going to a pretty awesome graduate.

    Also, I use little "snap" barrettes for my binding clips, and I second their awesomeness. You lose so much less blood that way…

  2. Natalie sounds very much like our daughter. I love the pattern you did for her . I have had 6 fabrics now for nearly a year trying to decide what to do with them. Your pattern has given me some new found inspiration. Quick question though: When I buy fabric, I usually like buy 2 yards. Is that too much/too little? Like most crafters I have a tendency to buy something "just because it's pretty", not know what or how I'm going to use it, just waiting for a moment like today…When BAM! I know what I'm gonna use _____(fill in the blank) for. Have a great day & I love your blog :O)
