I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
My cat, Cleopatra, is modeling this quilt. It is made from Ellie Ann fabric using Missouri Star Quilt Company's Falling Charms pattern. I also had it quilted by Missouri Star Quilt Company. I went with the name Falling Petals because the charms that are falling have flowers on them.
Here is the Binding Tool Star quilt all finished and in place on my son's new bed in his apartment in Tuscaloosa. I like to give quilts names that are also song titles. My son chose "After the Storm" by Mumford & Sons, because his last quilt was a Storms at Sea pattern and this one comes . . . after.
This month's row was a real pain to join together. The points that needed to match were extremely bulky. I got it together as best I could, but I decided that "perfection" was not going to happen, so I'm just trying to not worry about it. The operative word here is "trying."
