A very dear friend of mine came to the house for Eid and saw this Domestic Diva panel and fell head over heels in love with it. I can totally understand the feeling lol...This gorgeous line by Emily Taylor is everything retro & domestic & so much more that only a woman would appreciate.
So I was pleasantly surprised when she called last week asking me to make something simple using the panel as a birthday gift for her mom, which coincidentally falls on 10th of October. Today, 10.10.10, only happens once in a lifetime she said.
I kept it simple. As she wanted the whole panel, I just used the whole cut + a stripey backing + polkadot binding. I then simply quilted the panel print squares using for the first time my walking foot.
I really am a novice quilter. And my machine, oh my...it's just not made for quilting I guess. Very small arm and narrow space to work the bulky quilt sandwich through. Took some muscling around to quilt the whole squares.
