A Finish and a Start

My "Love" quilt is finished. I think it turned out pretty well. It's about 41"x41", before washing.

Here is a close up of the quilting.

And here is the back. I used the Love selvage and embroidered 2011 along with the little blocks.

Here is my new project. I purchase the Sand and Pebbles quilt pattern from Cherry House Quilts. I'm going to be using my Nicey Jane stash on this one. I've been collecting pieces of Nicey Jane for over 6 months and have 29 of the 40 fabrics. I choose this pattern because it had some large squares where I could feature some of the large prints.

And today I started sewing and got my first section together. A lot more to go since I'm going to make this a queen sized quilt 96"x96".

And if you haven't commented on my fat quarter giveaway, checkout the post below.


  1. I just love the Nicey Jane line, that quilt will be beautiful!

  2. I guess we enjoy the same fabrics.....I just finished up a table runner using my Love Charms and have Nicey Jane blocks ready to put Bee blocks from last spring! Love both of your projects!

  3. I need some of that rose fabric there:) Great finish on your quilt!!

  4. I have Sand Pebbles here - I'm anxious to make it. Trouble is, there are so many other "anxious to make" quilts ahead of it. *S* Yours will be beautiful.
