In a Shoebox

Another finished quilt! 2009 has been a very good year for me when it comes to actually finishing things. Maybe it’s this blog writing thing… it makes me accountable to the world for the things I start and then I feel obligated to eventually show a finished product of what I talk about here!

This one is another shop sample (probably the second reason why I’m finishing more stuff!), it is Shoeboxes, from the Atkinson Designs book, Time Out Quilts. You can purchase this kit from here. I think it is $52.99 plus the cost of the book if you don’t already own a copy. Everytime I go to shoot a new quilt, the handsome Kato insists on modeling it for me…I wish I could remember the name of this line of fabric, the colors are gorgeous and the designs a lot of fun! I quilted it in simple, straight lines to accent the pattern, and backed it with one of my faves, from the Katie Jump Rope collection by Denyse Schmidt. It matches this line of fabric very well…
I did a quick binding, sewing it on by machine, which actually makes it good and secure for a quilt that is going to a young person and it may be facing several washings. I love the deep coral color of this binding print:I hope 2009 has proven fruitful for you as well! Any grand sewing plans for 2010?

  1. Wow! That's a beauty Doris! I agree, blogging definately focuses the mind to get things finished! I've found the same phenomina! In 2010 I'll be concentrating on finishing some UFO's, and getting some charity quilts done too! Merry Christmas and aHappy New yesr to you and yours :o)

  2. That's a very pretty quilt, and looks like a straightforward, simple design. It will make a great gift.

    I am setting my 2010 quilting goals right now. I'm writing a little poem about it, and will publicly declare it on my blog soon, so as to keep me accountable.

  3. So Doris, isn't that nice that all your quilts get a cat scan? How on earth did I miss so many of your wonderful posts. I'll have to pay attention, your finished quilts are always a joy to see.

Let me know what you have to say on the subject....
