the shay shay


so i finally finished a a quilt for me!
and
i'm in love.


i loosely used amy butlers free pattern from her site.
it was my first time paper piecing and i still don't know how i feel about the technique,

but i'm loving the rug inspired color combination!





i used some scrap pieces for the back to mix things up:





and the binding is kaffe fassett:

You must start selling these. They are amazing.

thanks for the sweet compliments! jennifer, do you think? i just don't know if all the time would be worth the price??? :)

That is gorgeous Shay. From what I hear from other quilters, there's no way to get fully reimbursed when you sell a quilt. You'd have to charge hundreds of dollars considering all the time they take to make! Truly a laobr of love... That said, if you do have enough love to go around a ways I would totally buy one from you. Lol.

Nice, nice! I'd buy and my sister Jennifer is looking for some twin size quilts for her daughters beds. She wants a purple color, but can't find any she likes. We went into a hip fabric store and she feel in love with the idea of a custom made quilt.
