Making Easy Street: Clue 5
Yippee! Clue 5 has been finished! Between my having a cold last week, having a client project to work on, and the Christmas holiday, this clue was slow to get finished. But finished it is! You can see the final product for this clue above. I'm getting more and more curious as to how all these pieces will come together! How about you?
Since I mentioned the client project, I'll show it to you. :) My sister-in-law asked me to make a quilt to be a given as a gift. Since I was going to see her on Christmas Day, I decided I'd try to get it done so I could deliver it when we gathered together for Christmas Day celebrations. I managed to pull it off, putting the last stitches into the binding the morning before the celebration. Talk about squeaking under a deadline LOL.
The person to receive this quilt is a big fan of the University of Oregon Ducks. Can you tell? LOL! I used Ducks-themed fabric in the body of the quilt and a different themed fabric for the outermost border. I found other fabrics in similar greens and yellows, in a variety of interesting prints and patterns, to round out the rest of the materials for the quilt. The pattern I used to make this quilt is called Wicked Easy Quilts, and it surely lives up to its name. It was a free pattern that you can find here:
So, that's it for now. I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and I wish all of you the very best in the New Year.
