Last Friday in THIS post I shared that the Fons & Porter Love of Quilting facebook page was gonna feature my work on Sunday!!!!
Well they did... here is what they posted around Noon EST Sunday...
National Craft Month Dedication – Kathi from Port Orange, Florida: "I
loved making the "Sunny Side Up Charmer" valance because it used many
of my quilting skills, including design. This was inspired by a table
runner I found on a blog, but this is my design as I could find no
quilted valance ideas anywhere before I made this one.
valance is made just like a quilt. I used 42 charms with no two alike
from the Sunnyside Collection for Kate Spain by Moda and 1 1/2 yards of Moda Gray for the background and backing and hanging sleeve.
This is a fun weekend project. I made mine a mix of machine and hand
quilting. I also used all Aurifil thread on this project and love the
Kathi wrote more about this project in her own words here!"
With these pictures....
Since it's posting I have helped a few with more explicit directions for making your own custom sized quilted valance. If you are interested in more information please leave a comment.. I always answer them ;)
And here is the exciting part for me... It has over 2500 LIKES and over 300 SHARES on facebook!!!
I am in awe that so many would enjoy something I did just for fun :)
Thanks for reading and thanks for your support! I won't let all this attention go to my head! lol
Instead today I plan to finish the slow stitching on Kaydence's Baby Quilt and maybe even sew on the binding! Yippee :)
Linking this post (and a chance at a giveaway of a charm pack like I used in the valance) to Freemotion on the River Linky Tuesday here!
Until my next post...
