[three more]

I have been buried under an avalanche of snow. No joke. We got the most snow accumulation since the late 1800's. I haven't left the house in OVER A WEEK.
Instead I stayed inside and made three more quilt tops. The multi colored one is for me, made from Moda's Urban Nest line of fabrics. It made me think of summer. The next two will be donations to Project Linus.
I loved the fabrics on the third quilt top. I followed a pattern and this is how they suggested it be pieced together. I am not too keen on the placement of the brown right smack in the middle. Maybe it won't be so noticeable once I get everything quilted.

Now I am busy digging myself out of the snow, and strangely enough I ran out of thread. How is that even possible ?

[ project # 5 ]

I love taking these random fabrics and turning them into this :
Red, white and aqua cherries ! So different for me, but I love it, love it, love it !
I quilted it using the stippling technique ( squiggles with a fancy name )
I love it so much, I might make another just like it !
The back is fun too, red polka dot with a small strip of floral red and white fabric. The finished size is 39 inches by 39 inches. Just perfect for a little girl !
