Beginning a New...

Quilt! Yeah! It's so fun to get started on a new project, especially when it is a quilt. I put together a pattern from an inspiration quilt I saw on Pinterest and pulled fabric. Here is a sample of some of what I'll be working with:

I named mine Round-About Diamond Quilt and can't wait to get started!  What are you working on?

In the Woods...

Over at Stitched in Color, Rachel is having a fabric bundle contest and I decided to do an's been a long time since I put together a fabric mosaic and it seemed like a fun thing to do the day I put it together!

So here is my entry into the Ice Parfait mosaic contest:

This was my inspiration photo from off Pinterest... It's fun to do fabric things that distract for a few minutes :) and that it includes the chance to win the fabric!

Finally Done...

Many years from the first thoughts of making my husband a has finally happened!

This quilt has been a very long work-in-progress! Started over 3 years ago it has gotten pushed aside and neglected for other projects and priorities. Chad was always graciously accepting of the holiday's going by with his quilt still not done.

This morning my little helper helped remove the safety pins after the quilting was completed! She figured out how to open them on her own and was quite excited :)

The quilt is a plus design made up of a flannel top and a fleece backing...with no middle padding, which is good because it was heavy enough as it is! However, without the extra lining you can clearly see the place where the backing fleeces are joined together through the top with it laid on the bed. (Yes, that is a world map hanging above our headboard...doesn't every homeschooling family have one in the master bedroom? lol)

There is probably a little more pink in it than what would nor…
