And here's the top. I should have ironed it after wearing/before grabbing a picture of it! Funny story. Was with my friend K recently and was wearing the shirt.
Me: "Look at what I made. Pretty cute, huh?"
K: "Definitely. Its very maternity."
Me: Pause. Ummm. "Huh?"
K: "You know, maternity. What with all the birds and the nests."
Me: More pausing and thinking: I spent a long time making sure it was a relatively fitted top so that it wasn't too poofy...What is he talking about? Do I look pregnant in this shirt. Not the look I was after... "Oh... You mean the design is MATERNAL. Mama birds caring for baby birds!"
And how much fun did I have working on my Holiday Llama quilt this past weekend? Worked in some lovely Kona solids, some of my Modern Whimsy circles and a really pretty navy textured print from Jo-Ann's.
Quilting is now under way and I'm hoping to get it finished within the coming week or two.
Loving the way the squares from the Holiday Boxes pillow panel are pairing up with the Holiday Llama prints. I just cut everything 5-7/8" square (to maximize the pillow panel prints) and it came together pretty quickly!
