Summer project #5, 6, & 7

This is another quilt I finished this summer.  I started this quilt about 2 years ago.  I collected and cut out the flip flops, purchased the border and sashing fabrics, then I got busy and put it aside.

I’m not sure why my picture didn’t rotate!  To finish this quilt I am looking for novelty buttons to add to the flipflops.

This is a baby quilt for Levi.  He lives in Alaska.  I made this quilt from start to finish in August.  I had all the fabric on hand for this quilt.  That was very exciting for me, because that means I have a stash.  In quilt terms that means I have enough fabric to make a quilt without going and buying anything.  It takes awhile to accumulate a stash.  Some of the fabrics in this quilt were leftover from things I have made my boys such as; pj’s, pillowcases, shorts, curtains, and costumes.  Some of the other fabrics I had bought in hopes of making those things for my boys, but they out grew it.  I bought this quilt pattern in Woodward when I went camping with the Boy Scouts in May.

I bought the border fabric of this quilt because it had brown cows on it.  You see lots of black cows, but very few brown cows.  Now that the quilt is done, you don’t see the brown cows like I was hoping.  The blocks of this quilt were made over the course of a year through a quilt group at church.  We used a method called Thangles to make the half-square triangles.  I think it was at least 3 years ago.  I pieced it together last year and quilted it this summer.  The fabric was all bought at a quilt store in Perkins, OK probably about 4 years ago on a shop hop.

    I guess this means that the package arrived in AK since you’ve now posted a picture of Levi’s quilt! I’ve been eager to see how it turned out, and it turned out great!

    Yes, the quilt is here and we’re all enjoying it. Isaac was using it the other day when he was watching a movie.
    And, Amy, I remember you going to a huge fabric store in Portland with my mom once in search of flip flop fabric. Was that for this quilt?

    I forgot to comment when I saw this the other day. You are soooooo talented. I’m trying not to be jealous!

    Sue at Curves did a flip-flop quilt and has displayed it the last couple of summers. It’s the same pattern. She used all kinds of bows and button and stuff to accessorize it. It and the popsicle quilt are so cute for summer.
