Hey! Someone Made Me A Quilt!

 Out of my fabric scraps, no less.

~ Can you believe it?! ~

~ Well, neither can I ~

It was completely unexpected and a wonderful, thrilling surprise.

~ ta-dah! ~

This is what I happened to have on when she gave it to me.  One of four of those "Hot House Dresses" I've been making lately (but haven't been photo-ing), last seen here.

And here's a close up THE QUILT:

~ sigh ~

I've already slept with it.  I even shared it with my True Love.

Jackie, the quilt-maker, told me she made it with both of us in mind.  The various grays for him and the the peachy-rusty-beigey-blushy colors for me.  How did she know?!

From whence it came...

~ my cotton stash ~

Here's the tower of quilting cottons that Jackie perused for scraps and remnants.   Other shelves hold other types of fabric, but you get the idea.  She actually ended up with two Whole Foods grocery bags full.  Still I had no idea.  Do you think she was thinking of doing this all along???

 Wrapping up now with a shoe shot.

Jumping Back to the First One

~ Wearing Jumpsuit #1 ~

What do you think?  Certainly a far cry from the previous one I've shown, hereBut I luv it just the same.  Well, in a different way.

~ Sure is comfy ~

It's like pre-painted painter's overalls.  Jackson Pollack overalls?

Made from challis using McCall's 7936, a Learn to Sew pattern.  Only the size I had was too big, so I made a button up flap to take up some slack up the middle front.  (I didn't make that up.)  

~ buttons from stash, as is the fabric ~

Oh, and I lengthened the sleeves as usual.

Off to Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like when she goes live, and why not Spy Girl's Summertime?  Hope to see you all there.
