There were over 800 unread posts in google reader when I opened it up this afternoon, my e-mail in-box is even more overwhelming, there is no way I'll be reading everything. The internet keeps chugging along even when I wander away, maybe I should stay home for a little while. Instead of dealing with all the pesky chores that have piled up over the last few weeks I'm going to show off my new quilt.
This is Random Reflections, the pattern is by KarrieLyne of Freckled Whimsy, and it was very, very simple to make. All it really takes is two jelly rolls so the cutting is minimal and the top almost sews itself. It wasn't until the top was almost finished that I realized that I'd used the same fabrics as the original, a strange thing because I hardly ever come close replication when knitting. Luckily the chances of anyone in real life realizing that I just plain old copied the original are slim so I still love it.
I used used Fandango & snow jelly rolls and co-ordinating prints for the backing and binding. While the backing is nothing special I love the quilting. Once again I worked with a long arm quilter and the results are amazing. I need to make an appointment to take a few more tops to Julie for her special treatment.
