Close to my Heart!

You know when you walk into the LQS and the new fabric slaps you in the face and says 'take me home - now!' well that happened to me just before Christmas. And thanks to a pattern on Moda Bakeshop, and a few fq's of Astor Manor, hey presto, we have another quilt!



The quilting ladies I was with laughed and asked it I always dressed the same as the fabrics I use? That day I definitely had!


I'm not normally one for a pieced back, but this really works well! So, although the fabric is called Close to my Heart by Moda, this quilt really is close to my heart, I just LOVE it!
This was on my 2010 UFO list, (well it was a UFO at the begining of the year!) so that's another one done, though not the one I should be working on this month .... shhhh!


In other news, I had a little Ooops/ Doh! moment earlier today.....


.... I usually do my quilting on the frame, but often those little quilts are just too small, and it's easier to just free motion it on the Bernie. More of this tomorrow :)


Happy quilting!

Beautiful quilting (I zeroed in), worthy of the beautiful fabric. We all have those oops moments.

I love it when I find a favorite fabric.. good use of your find! I am tempted to do a bunch of straight up whole cloth quilts, just because I love the fabric so much I don't even want to cut into it!!!

happy picking! your right, it's universal pick out the oopsies day!

The big quilt is beautiful, I love the border you did, and the backing too. As for your oopsie, I think we've all been there, done that!
