Sewing goats quilt finish from Patchwork in Paris...

Sewing goats quilt finish from Patchwork in Paris! Ahh, those goats make me smile! Jennifer is a quilting mama,of a darling little boy (born on my birthday I just noticed)  look at this darling quilt she is working on with a bee for him! Love it! Be sure to visit Patchwork in Paris  for more inspiration!


I haven't posted in months and months and my unfinished stack of quilts continues to taunt me daily, but I just haven't found the time or energy to tackle it quite yet.  I am determined to somehow stay awake long enough after Louis goes to bed and after we have managed to eat dinner to finish up the star quilt I started for him before he was born.  I have (had) elaborate plans of hand quilting most of it, and could potentially make some progress over the holidays in August if I could assemble the blocks and back before then...

I did manage to finish this sewing goat quilt just before he was born in December but then never got around to photographing it and posting the final results.  I just love the color combinations of green, orange blue and yellow. I've included several different colors of Robert Kaufman Essex linen throughout the top and the back in an effort to tone down the mix of colors and patterns a bit.

The back is a men's dress shirt fabric and an orange flowered seersucker.

I love your quilt. I've been doing blocks like this with a focus center. Wish I could have found some of that fabric. It is adorable. Great job!

Thank you everybody for your sweet comments! The goat fabric was actually a gift from my very generous sister. I also have it in pink! She found it at Clothcamp on Etsy. http://goo.gl/1hYL4
