Lucy is completed! This pretty quilt took no time at all to make. In fact, after all the curved piecing and ruler drama I have had lately, this quilt was the perfect answer for me. I put a couple of audio books on the iPod and stitched away happily engrossed in both the books and the sewing. FYI, the audio books I listened to were Doll Baby by Laura Lane McNeil and Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarity. Doll Baby was entertaining, but totally implausible and somewhat irritating, and Big Little LIes is so engrossing and is making me laugh out loud. Anything by Australian author Liane Moriarity is terrific. I love all her stuff. This gal's sense of humor is off the charts. You either want to kill or be best friends with her characters.
But I digress.
The pattern is Lucy by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, and the fabric is a kit that Carrie Nelson (of the same company) put together with a selection of black, grey and orange fabrics. This quilt is sensational as a Halloween or fall themed quilt, but would be awesome as a scrap buster quilt in multi colors. It finishes at 74 inches square.
My photo looks a bit rumpled, even though I pressed it carefully during and after the sewing process. I just cannot lay a quilt top on the floor to take a photo without a certain three year old child and two curious dogs lolling all over it. I'd like to have it quilted with a spider web motif, as Carrie did with her sample.
Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was full of sewing--just wait til you see what I made!
