When I first started with this quilting kick, I went through a "buy every bit of fabric in sight" phase. I got over it, but I'm still working through the fabric that I bought.
One jelly roll that I bought was this line:
Freebird, by MoMo for Moda (click to see, obviously...)
When I got it, I thought - fun, but... loud. But I cut out the pieces for my planned squares... and then put it away. For quite a while. Then I finally got it out again and did a few more. Theeeeen - put it away.
You know the old saying, "absence makes the heart grow fonder"? Not so with this fabric. The longer it sat in my drawer, the longer I wanted to ignore it.
But, I finally pulled it out and started working on it again. I got the squares done, and then put it away while I mulled over what how to pull it all together. I had seen a few other quilts made with this line and I'll be honest. I wasn't really liking them. So finishing this was a trial for me. But, I decided what to do and got busy putting the top together. And...
I fell in love. Really. I finished quilting it today, so I have only the binding left to do, and I can honestly say - this is my favorite. By a lot.
It's funny - I haven't made a quilt for myself yet. I have a hard time picking fabric for me. So I said that I would just keep making quilts and when I made "the one" I would know it.
I was SURE this one would not be it.
But I think it might be!! I'll post pictures when the binding is done. And that point, I'll decide if it's mine - or if it goes in the shop. But I'm thinking it's mine!! :) Stay tuned!
