Sweeny Todd Baby Quilt - Yikes!
So, a couple of days ago I told everyone about the baby quilt I'm making for the Little Guy. I was so very excited, nah, I would say I was all a twitter to be using my Woodsy Wonders fabric that has been in my stash for two years. After posting the blog, I got to work. Progress was good.
Then, that evening, I got an email from my son Drew... the father of yet to be born Little Guy. The email was titled... "A Little Eerie", and the text said, "Is this based on Sweeny Todd?" He attached this photo:
Holy Schnikes! This looks bad... really, really bad. What's that frog doing? Is that a sinister look in his eyes? Sure looks like the razor Sweeny Todd used!!! No, no, no I tell myself. It's a sweet print. It's adorable. It's a butter knife used for spreading jam. Must be... has to be!
Well, one of our lovely readers, Bonney Teti, had emailed me to let me know I could still buy the fabric from Fabric Attic. http://www.fabricattic.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=159. I want to make a couple of matching things and needed more fabric. While I was at the site, I noticed a companion fabric...
So, see Drew!!! Not a Sweeny Todd reenactment... just a very hospitable frog, with a mirthful twinkle in his eyes, preparing a lovely strawberry jam sandwich for a friend.
As far as the quilt progress goes... I've finished the top of the quilt. It is a "quilt as you go" so if I wanted, I could just add the binding and be done. However, I want to do some hand stitching on the quilt, so I'll wait to bind it til I'm done.
Just a little aside... Knowing my family, this quilt will forever be known as the Sweeny Todd quilt. Thank you, Drew ;)
