The weather is finally making a nice turn to warmth, sunshine and blue skies. I’ve been outside a lot this past week, and it has really given me an energy boost. I am so grateful for it! I had a baby shower for my friend on Saturday morning, it was a lot of fun! She is having a boy next month. I am really excited for them.
I wanted to thank those of you that left comments about my mom on my last post, she is an amazing person. The dialysis treatments she is now getting are helping her out quite a bit, and we are all counting our blessings.
I’ve been stitching away for an exchange coming up next month! It is close to being done now. I can’t wait to share it with you. It has been pretty time consuming. You know me, go big or go home!
On the quilting front:
First off, I am totally excited for my LQS (local quilt shop) Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe. They were featured in the Quilt Sampler Magazine as a TOP 10 shop. That shop is totally amazing. Everytime I go in there I get inspired and can’t wait to get home and make more quilts. So, if you are ever in Portland, be sure to get out to their shop, you won’t regret it.
I’ve been using up my scrap bin, I made this baby quilt top from my scraps. Most of them are Amy Butler fabrics. How cute huh? I like these coin quilts, really easy to make and a nice pattern. I am currently quilting my May Schnibbles, so far so good.I’ve busted more stash… oh yes I have. I pulled out a lot of my blues/reds/creams to make a scrappy Americana quilt. I cut a whole bunch of 6” squares and then made half square triangles out of them. I am now playing with layouts. The blocks shown are only about half of what I have. What layout do you like? Well, off I go. I hope you all have a great week.
