Ode to Pearl

I started this mini quilt last Fall for my Modern Quilt Guild’s mini-quilt challenge.

And then I stuck it in the UFO pile where it sat for a year.

Thank you Faith for the little kick-in-the-pants I needed to finish it up!

You kind of need sunglasses to look at it, but I love it.    It was inspired by my sewing machine.  Her name is Pearl.

We spend a lot of time together and she seldom disagrees with me.   A girl’s best friend! 😉

Hope your week is off to a great start!

  1. Aww! I love it! Did you draw all the pieces? I like the mix of fabrics you used. Sometimes, projects just need time to rest in a UFO pile for a while.

    I sent a quilt top off to be quilted today. Tomorrow, I have to tackle making a motor cover for a jon boat used for duck hunting. 😦

    • Thank you Anne! I did draw out all the pieces and then appliqued them on. Good luck with the motor cover, I hope it goes together quickly so you can get back to sewing something you want!

  2. OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. If it ever needs a new home, you can rest assured it would be happy here. 🙂 JK I know you probably can’t part with it but it is super cute. Girl, you have so much talent!

  5. Wow – it’s fantastic!!!! And the quilting is amazing!

  6. I LOVE it! I’m sad we didn’t see it last year, but I hope we’ll see it at Show & Tell? I didn’t even know this existed : ) I have plans for a Featherweight version soon…. someday….

    • I will for sure bring to show-n-tell. I can’t believe it didn’t jump out at you in my sewing room, it’s been stuck to the wall unfinished all this time. Make one for your Featherweight!

  7. Very nice! Love the way the thread comes off the spool!

  8. Oh my gosh, that is amazing!! I’m so glad you finished it, wow, totally creative and inspiring.

  9. Looks great! I love the quilting on it! I saw the pics of the Kona quilts on FB and I’m trying to decide which one you made. I’ve narrowed it down to 3 (I think!)
