Happy to get another one finished this week, the Key to My Heart quilt.
Such soft, snuggly goodness! Jelly roll and backing fabric is Oasis by Three Sisters. The Key to My Heart pattern is by Sweet Jane. Quilted in an overall meander with Aurifil in the top and bobbin.
It's a nice size for a crib quilt, or a lap quilt for people smaller than we here in the land of the giants. (Although not as gigantic as the perspective of this photo might imply. I'm standing on a cedar chest for this shot with the camera held above my head...in case anyone was wondering.)
I'll probably hang onto this quilt until the next baby girl comes along via friends or relatives.
Meanwhile, the next one is on deck.
I basted this top together last night during American Idol.
I'm enjoying the dynamic between new judge Harry Connick, Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban. They seem to have a lot of fun together and make me laugh. It doesn't hurt that they're all nice on the eyes either.
I'm glad there aren't as many time-wasting awful auditions to suffer through too. Seems they've whittled it down to decent stuff worth watching. The past few years, I've skipped this part of the show and just tuned in for the actual competition.
I haven't talked much about thrifting adventures lately because there has been a lack of them. Last Sunday, however, I stopped at the local Goodwill and found something useful for the sewing room, one of those suction-cup grab handles. It was brand new, so nothing gross about buying it second-hand. At $1.99, I could hardly go wrong.
I attached it to a wide ruler and tested it out on trimming this quilt. Works great!
