back in May.) My Little Folks voile king sized quilt, in all her wrinkly glory! I never thought I would ever make a quilt this big, but making it in the lightweight voile certainly made it a lot easier to accomplish. It is 100" x 95".
I had just enough of the pink Village Path voile (on sale from fabric.com) to cover the back with just one (almost invivsible) seam up the middle. I do like a nice pieced back, but I also love an easy finish!
As far as real WIPs go, T-Hex continues on. I think I am almost 1/4 done! Maybe pictures next week :)
And for a little puzzler, I received a fabric shipment from Spoonflower a couple of weeks ago, with this curious little return label:
Henning Mankell or Wallander.
And one last thing: a few weeks ago, the playground at my boys' school was vandalized for the third time in two years, and part of the play structure was burned down. It has been temporarily repaired, but we will have to replace it. The parents and school staff have started a fundraising campaign on Aviva - if you had the time or the inclination to register and vote for our project that would be really appreciated! You can register pretty painlessly through Facebook and so far I haven't received any spam from them. Here is the link. You can vote once a day. Thanks so much!!
I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday. Thanks for visiting :)
