I didn’t steal the actual shown-and-tell.
I’m just going to show someone else’s show-and-tell. I have been too busy to finish my own things and anything I have been finishing can’t be shown quite yet, so that’s my justification for stealing someone else’s show-and-tell. That someone is my sister, so I’m pretty sure she won’t mind. She’s been on a mission to finish a few things. She has a deadline, with her second baby due within the next month.
That means little Addi is moving to her big girl bed and needed a new quilt for her bed.
My sister chose to make the Sunday Picnic quilt from my book Livin’ Large. (The book came out last fall)
Here’s the original –
Lindsey chose to use the fabric Objects of Desire by Sandy Gervais.
The fabric is very bright and cheerful, and if you look closely, you will find little high-heeled shoes. I quilted it with lots of flowers and I let the brown pop so it would stand out.
Addi tested the quilt out, but prefered to use the lattice as a road for Thomas and Rosie. (Trains are the current toy of choice at Grandma’s house right now)
Even though we all think she looks great, I didn’t think my sister would want a current, very pregnant picture of her on the web so this is one of my favorite shots of her and Addi. I took the picture last summer – and wow has Addi changed!
Little does Addi know that it won’t just be her and mom anymore . . . . Things are about to change in a big way!
Sorry, I’m getting off the subject of this post.
I have one more of my Sister’s quilts for show-and-tell.
It’s Square Dance, again from the book Livin’ Large. Here’s the original –
My Sister’s version uses the last line that I designed with my Mom, called Rebel Roses.
The large squares in this pattern are perfect for showing off the large-scale rose prints
and some machine quilting!
I think Addi approves!
Either that or she just really likes Peet-a-Boo
