the shark has been tamed!

Well, it is finished!

This has been a big challenge for me! I guess challenges are always a learning experience though.
It started out like this... so I guess it has progress a long way!
If you haven't seen the previous posts, this is supposed to be a stylized version of the San Jose Sharks logo. My daughters boyfriend is a big fan, and they requested a duvet cover ...and gave me complete creative control   LOL.
 It was more difficult that I thought it would be, working with large pieces of fabric, no pattern and crawling around on the floor moving pieces around!

But I is done now!
I made an envelope closure on the back, and used buttons.  I put the buttons on the inside so that you cant see them. (and the puppy cant chew on them!)  Fortunately my sewing machine has a button hole maker, and even a button sewing is pretty cool! and fast!

Then last night I washed it up and stuffed the duvet into it. I will take it out to Calgary next week, and hope they like it.

Linking up to TGIFF..this week over at Quilt Matters.(this week I am TRULY happy to finished!!)
And over at Quilt Matters,  check out M-R's beautiful "Modern Totums" quilt...I love it!  


  1. It turned out great! Very modern. Love it. And I can just imagine you crawling around on the floor. I've often thought those gardening knee pads might be a wise investment when I'm doing the same thing. Anyway, congrats! It's wonderful!

  2. Wow, you are brave. But it turned out great. Congrats! and your hidden buttons are impressive.

  3. Well done!! Love the idea of the buttons reversed.

  4. wow!!!! That was fast Flo.....wonderful job on it too!!!!!

  5. Yay! Yay! Yay! So cool, Flo! Way to go!

  6. This turned out great! I like challenges too...they make you think and use all of your resources. They will love it!

  7. OK, I am really impressed with this one. Great design, nice buttoning construction for the cover.


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
