Maxine Quilt

I love Maxine from the Hallmark store.  No I REALLY LOVE Maxine from the Hallmark store.  The things that she says are things that everybody thinks, but probably would never say to someone.  I have the cookie jars that Hallmark sold, I have the Christmas ornaments, (I try to do one small tree with just her on it), I have probably just about everything that Hallmark has sold with her on it.  If you have never seen her then you need to google Hallmark Maxine.  She will make your day with her sayings.

Last year I was looking at different fabrics to find a project to work on.  (You know because I obviously don't have enough to do), when low and behold I saw her.  The face that I have come to love, Maxine, the fabric is made by Robert Kaufman.  Maxine must have a bigger following than I thought since she has her picture on fabric. When I bought the fabric there was only one print with her picture available and then some other prints with her sayings on it.  I saw where there is some more added to the list now, so, I might have to make another quilt or maybe a tote bag.

With the fabric that I purchased, I was not really sure what I was going to do with it, then I decided to make a lap quilt for my office.  I did not follow a pattern,  I just made it up as I went along.  Probably not the best plan but I thought it turned out fine.  I just cut the blocks apart and then added white fabric to them, which made rows and then I attached the rows together and then quilted it with the fabric on back with some of Maxines sayings and then added some orange fabric for a binding.  For not having a plan or pattern I am very happy with the results.

Hope you enjoyed my Maxine quilt.
