I Won ...

12 Fat Quarters and the Picture Day pattern from Elizabeth at Oh, Fransson. I was so excited. The fabric just came today from Fabric Worm, the citrus collection is very bright and cheery. The pattern below looks like fun. It's a happy day when Free fabric comes in the mail.

A Finished Quilt

Here is my finished Whirly Gigs quilt. I finished quilting it awhile ago, but just finished the binding last night. I am really happy with how it turned out, the colors are great. I did the back with simple wonky squares. Now I have to decide what to do with this one.

New Fabrics and some New Patches

I picked up these Kona solids a the Fabric Shack last week. They had a coupon code SAVE5 and I got $5 off. Their price on Kona solids is the best I've found $4.19/yard. I had ordered school bus orange too, but they sold out of it. Oh well, I'll have to find it somewhere else.

And I ordered these prints from Hawthorne Threads. I love their website, you can login, add stuff to your cart and come back a day later and review, remove stuff, add stuff, etc. It took me a week to finally decide on these ones.

And I started putting together some of my owls into patches. I love these color combinations of pink, orange and green. It's just so happy. Now I need to make more owls. I only have 5 done. I think it's going to be a baby quilt though, so I probably only need about 9 or 12.

Play-Doh Quilts

Today Troy and I were playing Play-Doh and he wanted me to make a pillow and a blanket. I said, how about I make a quilt. He liked that idea. I ended up making 2 little ones.

Easter Pictures and Quilt Progress

Here are a couple of pictures from Easter morning. I guess I shouldn't have had them looking into the sun to take the pictures. Troy was happy, he got 2 kites from the Easter Bunny, and since it's been kind of windy, we've been flying them a lot.

And here's my progress on my quilt. It's coming along, slower than usual. I didn't sew at all on Saturday or Sunday, and not much on Monday. Hopefully later today I will have more time.

Quilt Layout

Here's my tenative layout for this quilt. I'm sashing it with the Kona Coal, it looks a little off on our gold coverlet. I've started piecing them together and will show more pictures soon.
