I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

Tammy and Jason's "wedding" quilt

I realized in looking back through my pictures, that I hadn't explained the one I use as my header, and as my FB id. This quilt is made from two blocks: Jacob's Ladder, and the Buckeye. It worked out to be roughly 64"x64". A generous throw, small bed cover.

 I first saw it as the featured quilt in one of my many magazines, and loved the country cuddly look. And since it was fat quarter friendly, I decided it was time to clean out that drawer of some fabric. Yeah....right. Nice story, isn't it?

I went a little more for the bright and jewel tone colors from my "big cut" stash, and was thrilled with the collective. But man was it a lot of cut, sew, press, cut, press, sew....
My only regret is not getting a close up of the hand quilting. I used a white thread and did a modified shadow stitch around the main pattern, with a traveling outline stitch into some of the background fabric.  I swore this was it, never doing it again....and I now have a bag with the next round of fabrics set aside for the quilt I "won't " be making again....
