Two Headed Sheep

Yay! I finished the customer's quilt on Sunday afternoon. She doesn't need it til August, but it's nice to get it out of the way before my trip.

This is the front of the quilt, 36" square. I quilted wavy lines in the cream fabric.


This is the back of the quilt. I didn't have enough yardage to make a seam-less backing, so I took all my leftover HSTs and basically made it a double-sided quilt.


While I was handsewing down the binding I came across what would happen when cloning goes wrong...

Those poor sheep make me laugh - what are the odds of me sewing something like that, unknowingly? :)

I made an order for books from an online site - should give me plenty to read when I'm visiting my parents! I also placed an order at Dharma for handdyeing powders and chemicals. I'll have to buy the muslin when I'm there. I'm not sure when I'll have time to dye, but I really wanna show my mom and sister how to. :)

That cloned sheep is too funny! You're right I don't think you could have planned that to happen easily.

Have fun on your trip!

Your work is just wonderful! I'm sure the customer will be pleased. Can't believe you wanted to do all that extra sewing to get a backing, but what a great gift to the owner!!

I think the Universe has a sense of humor too, what are the odds that the sheep fabric would come together like that???? LOL...neat!

Lol* I love it Leah! It looks really kind of antique to me...I bet it's going to look gorgeous after a few washes... :) I like old puckered up quilts! :)
