You've been asking about a pattern for Olive's new quilt, and I am happy to let you know that the wait is over! Here she is! And yes, I quilted every single one of those lines on my Bernina = I am crazy.
When I made Olive's, I was sort of playing around and found that there were a few things I wanted to change for the pattern. So here it is, in perfected form, made of Joel Dewberry's "Aviary 2" fabric. The orange/aqua/browns go really well with my living room, so it just might live here.
It seriously took me a million years to quilt. We're talking 3 whole spools of thread for this quilt. That's 1200 yards of thread if I'm not mistaken. Sheesh.
Luckily, I love how it turned out--so that solid week of quilting was well-spent.

Oh and you know I like to celebrate the birth of a new pattern, so I have a special prize today. One lucky winner will get my new pattern with a little bundle of Aviary 2 fat quarters. Just leave a comment telling me what you are making for dinner tonight. (We're having Hawaiian Haystacks...yum!) You can leave another comment (extra entry) if you share this giveaway on facebook. The giveaway will go until Saturday night (3/3) at midnight (EST) and the winner will be announced the beginning of next week. Good luck!
