I've finished the new project that I mentioned the other day:
Coasters! I am really happy with the way that these turned out. They are made out of cotton fabric and batting and silk screened with sweet little animal motifs on top. I've been wanting to do something like this for a while now, silk screening over quilting. I was initially planning on quilting more than this but I really like the simplicity of this. They are for sale in my Etsy shop.
In other news, my sister Lauren's birthday is tomorrow and I told her I would make her a quilt for her new queen size bed. And I haven't started it yet. Yeeps.
I asked her in February if she would like one for her birthday. I didn't want to just surprise her with one. That would pretty much guarantee that she wouldn't like it. I have such difficulty making gifts that I know that people will like...I usually just make gifts that I really like. So she said that she wanted one and I thought "It's February! June is so far away!" June 6 seemed very very far away ever since then. But now it's tomorrow. Oops. This weekend I plan on getting that well underway. I am very excited because after showing her several options that I could make for her, she chose something like this or this. I love these quilts, I can't wait to make one!
