Domestic Bliss

I finished my Domestic Bliss quilt top! I used a simple bowtie pattern in 6" blocks. It's a medium throw sized quilt with 56 blocks for my sofa. I already pieced the back together. I just need to go buy some batting so I can get started on the quilting, which I'm still undecided about. Any suggestions? I'm thinking straight lines maybe?




I used some left over scraps to make a Kindle/Nook case. I love how bright and cheery these fabrics are. It's now in the shop if anyone is interested.




Lighting has been terrible around here with all this gloomy weather. It's been raining pretty much non-stop. But I'm looking forward to Valentine's Day tomorrow. I'm going to spend the entire day with my two loves. What could be better than that? Have a great day!

  1. Love those bow-ties. I've never tried that kid of square before. I've "pinned" yours for future reference. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am so impressed with your patience!! I don't think I could handle a quilt...although I am going to do one for each of my kids very soon. But a lot more simple than yours. I love the Kindle case!!

  12. Goodness- I don't sew so when you ask for advice on whether you should use "straight lines", my thought is, "or what? crooked ones?" I have no idea what you're talking about. BUT, I think the quilt pattern is beautiful!

    Pinning the nook holder. I don't have one- but if I did, I'd get one of those. :)
