I've started working on the back to my Sugar Pop quilt. The alternating trees are going to make a strip across the back. I love those little trees.

I started this 9 Nine Patch quilt top just a week ago. It was fast because I just used 2 Sugar Pop charm packs along with Kona Snow. I will hopefully start the back this evening, if time permits.
I have a few new items in the Rose Room. First I broke down and purchased a new iron. I was tired of my old Rowenta spitting and leaving marks on some things. This is the Oliso TG1100 with smart touch technology. I love it. You just touch the handle and the little legs retract up in. When you let go, the legs pop back out so you never have to set it upright. I also purchased a new ironing board cover and pad on Etsy.

I finally finished the binding this morning on this quilt. I actually finished the quilt top back in 2010, but had put it aside. For the binding I used a print from Rosemarie Lavin from the Feelin' Groovy line, it had the pink, orange and green that tied everything together.
I got it back out and quilted it with squares around the stars, then I quilted around the green blocks.
I tried this morning to get Troy to hold the quilt for pictures, but he just wanted to stand in front of it.
