I actually have a finish for Finish-it-up Friday! I really have a couple things to show you, but this one is actually done AND photographed!
I made a pillow top out of mini charms aaaaaaages ago, and it sat on my design wall forever while I contemplated how to quilt it. Like ages.
I found this picture of it's early stages on my Flickr. Taken in MARCH. Don't judge...
So it sat, and sat, and sat... and then divine inspiration came in the form of a blog post from Christina at A Few Scraps. She actually has a book out that is ah-may-zing, so you should get it. And she has no idea that I even exist, much less rave about her book, so you can trust my honesty!
So I saw that post, liked the design, and just sat at my machine and went to town. I didn't draw it out beforehand (maybe I should have!) but I think it turned out ok anyway. I have to say, when inspiration strikes, I don't have any patience!
I even managed to quilt it and make it into a Real Pillow on the same day! I know, right??
Doesn't she look so pretty next to her friend? Charlotte approves, though I don't have photographic proof.
I even started a little something else the other day, that I'm super stoked about. I've just hit a snag until more background fabric comes in the mail!
