Baby Brit QAL finish!

post signature
Almost 5 years ago, I hosted a QAL.
Six people joined me, along with 2 of my daughters.
You can see the quilt I made here!

My daughter Lindsay made this quilt.
I just love the colors she used!

I never would have thought of using green and yellow, along with the traditional red and blue!

Every time I visited her home, I would see the quilt top folded neatly on her shelf.  
Almost a year ago, I offered to machine quilt it for her, because I really wanted to see the quilt finished :)

I would have liked to have done a "custom" quilt pattern, but I was pressed for time.
I did an organic vertical pattern.

It's always wonderful to get a quilt finished :)

Normally, I would have used a red binding.  
I tried thinking outside the box and chose pink because it picked up the beautiful little pink roses in the fabric.
Lindsay gave me the blue and yellow to use for the back, she has a great color sense!

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Case

post signature
I bought this pattern at Pine Needles in West Jordan, Utah, and have been dying to make it!

I made this cute little case for my Kindle Paperwhite and it was so easy!

I love this "quilt as you go" method and had such fun finding the cutest little bits of fabric to use.

Look, my name is even printed on the fabric!
It's "bowling team" by Cotton and Steel and just happened to have my name on it :)

Here is the back of my little case, I love it just as much as the front.
Each little piece of fabric brings back happy memories.

Farm Girl Vintage Sampler quilt top finished!

post signature
It's taken 2 years, but I finally finished my quilt top!

48 - 6 l/2" blocks, plus the 4 in the corners = 52!

 Here is a closeup of the blocks that I put in the corners.

It's going to take me a while to find the time to quilt this beauty, hopefully I can get it done before the second week in July :)
