'Sweet Nothings' Project

Last night I finished up the handwork on this "Sweet Nothings" project from Darlene Zimmerman who designs 30's reproduction fabrics for Kaufman Fabrics. I love reproduction prints from that era and have wanted to do something with them for a long time. I finally settled on this a little before Christmas and ordered the kit. I have never ordered a quilt kit before, but it worked out well! I wish mine had come with the yellow for sashing like the sample on her web page, but oh well! I also skipped the scalloped edge. She had designed it as a table runner, but I wanted to use it for a wall hanging in my kitchen and I wasn't sure how the scallops would hang.

This is also the first project that I tried my hand at free-motion quilting on. I took a class a few weeks ago and fell in love. My skills are so-so at best, but thankfully you can't see that in a picture or when it's hanging on the wall!
