Shadowbox

I still need pillows and different shams but this sewing project kept me busy for a bit. The pattern is Shadowbox from Mountain Peek CreationsT and the fabric is City Bloom by Kitty Yoshida from Benartex




I had it machine quilted and picked a circle quilting design. There is so many circle patterns in the fabric, I wanted to continue that into the quilting.



If I was more of a quilter I would have laid out the rows and planned the fabric placement better, see two patterns right together. Oh, well, I do have room now daughter and son-in-law took the foosball table from the basement. This means I have a wide open floor to cut fabric, place quilt designs, and do cartwheels (not, just seeing if you were paying attention)





I do like my new quilt, brightens up my room. I want to take the mirrors down from above my headboard but hubby doesn't like that idea. What is it with guys, holes in the sheetrock drives my guy crazy!
One more quilt in progress, for Kaitlyn's newly painted room, then I am back to clothing. It is still warm here and I can't get in the mood for fall sewing yet. It will hit me when it turns cooler and I have nothing to wear.
