got 'er done

this is the only quilt i finished this month. my in-laws can take this to my niece and then i won't have to ship it which is nice. the fold mark is bugging me but oh well. you get the jist. :)
the back is fun to me. that stripe is in the middle. this will fit a twin size bed. my mother in-law said that this should match the room REALLY well and that lilly should like it. hope so!! it was very fun working with pinks and greens. hope you have a great day!! :)

i didn't fall off the face of the earth....

i've just had a lot going on. it's been a busy and sad couple of weeks around our house. i'm on pto this year at the school and we have a function coming up on friday that i've been working on. last saturday our church had their carnival that i help with. big to do. and lastly and hardest thing was i had to take peter parker my cat to the humane society on the 10th. boy that was HARD!!!!!!! i cried A LOT!!!! he was to stressed with ruby and i couldn't see him sick anymore.

but on a better note i was at target yesterday and found these sheets that i thought went well with my quilt. they are 400 thread count, king size and they were only 37$. i LOVE target. i don't always have sheets that match because i get cheap when it comes to things like that. but i can NO longer sleep on nubby sheets. does anyone else know about nubby sheets. i can't stand them!! :)

i am working on things - i just have to get through this weekend and maybe i'll get a few things done and share them!:) have a FANTASTIC day!!

i just couldn't help it. i saw these pinks and greens and couldn't help starting a new project. why? who knows. :) i haven't done a log cabin in a LONG time and i just LOVE this look and the colors.
i am also working on my 9 patch. i found more scraps of my fabric and so i think i'm going to be able to make it bigger than i thought. i really don't like messing with sashing so i'm boxing them in as i go. origanally i wasn't going to use sashing but i didn't want to match up all those seams so i reconsidered! :) hope you had a great holiday weekend. have a great day!

i got the fabric for my quilting bee yesterday and here is what i came up with today. she wanted a star in it somewhere and i really like these stars. i have a blue and green quilt started with these stars. she also wanted some of all the fabrics sent in the block (check), star (check), 10.5 x 10.5 (check) the only thing i'm not ready to check about is the randomness. i need to get better at that. hope you have a nice saturday!!:)

i was afraid...

since it had been so long that i might have forgotten how to sew!:) this is my neices quiltop that i finally finished. i'm now back into the swing of things. i think.:) hope you have a great day. the pinks and greens aren't showing up as well as i'd like but i LOVE this quilt. i think i'm going to start a nine patch with these fabrics. i still need to work on the other nine patch but this would be more fun!!!:)
