Secret Santa quilt top “data letters”

I finished the top for a quilt I’m making to give away at the company Christmas party on Friday.  dragged the teen to Joann’s for batting and thread this morning after some Starbucks bribery.

I started sewing the top two days ago – marathon *I might just get sick of sewing* stitching session…  I only got the name of the intended last Friday and ordered fabric in a hurry.  It’s meant to match this chair she recently purchased from Target.

The Starbucks bribery included some butter croissants, so our quilt photo-taking roles were reversed and I had to hold the quilt and let the teen take the pictures.  Here’s what you end up with when the person holding the quilt is short, with short arms and the person taking the photo just wants to go home…

or this, which is marginally better…

also the colors in this quilt don’t photograph well.  and it’s a rainy morning in Chicago.  (is that enough excuses for one post?)  I was inspired by these…

back to marathon sewing….  I need to finish this quilt for Friday’s party and the Cinderella quilt for the Monday following and then my niece’s bowtie quilt.  and I have some sadistic fantasy about managing to finish a Christmas pillow for someone, too.  I think there’s going to be a lot of dirty dishes and dust bunnies around here!

more quilt stats when it’s done.  :-)

  1. If you had the gold one it just meant you had more money to spend on it, but in replica watches enthusiast circles rocking a steel one to this day means you likely dedicated a lot of effort in hunting. The swiss replica watches behind this tactic is that the much higher mark up on precious metal cases help cover the very high costs of both the development and the manufacturing of said new rolex replica sale or features. Time and again we see brands painstakingly develop complicated movements or other hublot replica which they will only make available in precious metal cased versions even if other models of the same brand do come in steel. Based on what I learned about manufacturing colored ceramics, I go so far as to say the source of the issue is in the rado replica sale used to color it as pigments.
