Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Finished Quilt

I have managed to start and complete 2 quilts this year already and finish up Eli's.  I'm very proud of that.  Hoping I can continue to get sewing in once Eli is here! 

So here it is, quilt 3.  I'm in love with this quilt.  I love the colors and the binding, and it's the perfect lap size, yet again.  It measures 42.5 x 38.  Lap size seems to be my favorite to make, so quick and easy and perfect to snuggle with and read!

This quilt is for my dear friend Andrea.  This shade of green is soo very her, I made her a knit scarf years ago in almost this same shade.  So when I dug out the Pillow & Maxfield fabrics I decided it had to be for her!  This is a Christmas/Birthday present for her.  Her birthday is tomorrow actually!

I simply quilted straight lines on the edges and then along the sashing and snowballs.  Very simple, and I wish I would have used green thread on the back, but live and learn.  I was too excited to start quilting it to wait and buy more thread.  *sigh*  Scrappy binding of course!

Linking up with Quiltstory for Fabric Tuesday!

I like the sashing with the snowballs! It really makes each individual fabulous fabric stand on its own, and still it is a unified piece. It is a beautiful quilt!
