Yup, it's my 100th post! *does the electric slide* Woot!
So yeah, I can't believe I've sat in front of my computer 100 times and blogged about little morsels of my life for you all to read about! Pretty cool!
I was actually going to hold off and save this post for the 31st, which is my 1 year "bloggiversary", and do like a super mega post. But I couldn't even stand to wait that long and not share my newest creation with you all! *moonwalks* (I know! I have no patience when it comes to secrets or surprises.....I'm the absolute worst! I get so excited and want to tell so bad! It's almost like when you have to pee really bad and.......okaaay...I'll shut up now.) Moving on....^_^
So, I haven't made a quilt since the Doll Quilt Swap last year. I started to get the urge to do another recently, especially since February is Quilting Month over at Sew, Mama, Sew. You ever have an idea and need to get it out of your head right away? Well, that's basically what happened to me on Saturday. I wanted to do a another small quilt but had an idea to make this special little quilt a little more fun!
I'll show you the back first....tee hee.....
I was having my breakfast of homemade Honey Banana Bread and a glass of OJ and decided to stick them in the shot! haha Yeah, I'm a dork.
I've been seeing all of the cutie pie hexagons around blogland and decided to give it a whirl....then I got lazy and decided I need more instant gratification! Here's what I did with the front.......
Checkers anyone? Yellow polka dots vs. Linen!
I made a mini quilt measuring about 10 inches by 10 inches and used covered buttons for the checker pieces. Easy peasy, lemon checkers.....uhm....eesy. ^_^ Checkers is a fun game ....why can't the board be fun too?
I wanted the quilting on top to be invisible so I used nylon thread in the needle of the machine and put matching yellow thread in the bobbin so the color would show up underneath. (You can see the yellow quilting in the first photo.)
Who's going to win I wonder? Yellow Polka dots or Linen?
