This finish was worth a frolic!
I rarely make anything this big.
I'm still not sure what the "occasion" was but I like the results.
This was a very fun fabric line to play with as well.
It's a good thing there are LOTS of amazing fabrics out there to play with or all of us quilters would get bored.
Up next... well, where do I start? how long do I have? ;o)
Should you feel the need to give this one a good home with lots of snuggles, it's in the shop.

But another quilt added to the stack!
I love when my stack grows!
Ladybug applique 33" x 34" baby quilt in Flutterby by Tula Pink for Moda.
I pulled the ladybug design right from the brown fabric to make something pop.
I've actually made a lot of things now out of these fabrics and the husband thinks I should be tired of them by now... but I can't get tired of them.
I like them too much.
It's in the shop.

So I made this little coin quilt 35" x 40".
This one's in the shop.
I like the funky factor in these fabrics.
I've got a LOT of projects "on deck" right now so hopefully I'll find the time to finish them soon.
It's "Giveaway Day" at SewMamaSew and I've decided to play along and giveaway a little something to you:
This little table topper in Sunkissed by Sweetwater for Moda.
It's about 17" x 23".
To enter just leave a comment (with contact information if you are a "no-reply" blogger) and if you want, tell me what you like to do Sunday nights before the week gets started and crazy!

So I thought I'd share this little pattern with all of you.
I would sell it but I wouldn't want to be blamed for someone's frustration with the time commitment, etc. of this pattern but I enjoyed it and most of the fun quilting projects out there are very time commitment heavy.
The smaller sizes are VERY do-able.
It's designed for raw edge applique with charm squares but you could also use any scraps that are appoximately 2.5" x 5" or larger.
Anyway, I'll stop talking so you can start quilting!

Oh, and that "sneak peak" thing in the background...
Fabric is "Summer House" by Lily Ashbury for Moda - large appliqued flowers - some patchwork not shown... just needs some binding.

After months of slowly working on this project it is finally done.
Doesn't everyone have a hexie project in the works??
It definitely seems like it out there in blogland.
Oh, and confession... I follow WAY too many blogs.
I'd be scared to count them up.
I'm sure I could double my productivity in life if I didn't, but I love them all.
And now that this hexie project is done I have the impulse to start another...
Oh, those cute little ADDICTIVE hexies.
The fabric is Nostalgia (April Cornell, Moda), a lovely little floral line with soothing colors.
More pics in the shop too.

A rainbow - also a first for me - in Just Wing It.
Love this one.
It's just so happy.
These are in the shop.
Charlevoix Table Topper 20" x 20"
Up next, diamonds.
I saw this really cute blog picture and tutorial of an argyle pillow.
I thought to myself, "self, that argyle looks pretty easy, and I can quilt the crossing lines."
I really didn't think this one through very well.
Turns out diamonds are incredibly tedious to pin and sew... incredibly.
Especially when you make them this small.
But I like the look so well, I'd do it again.
Charlevoix Table Topper 17.5" x 24"
They look like a wonderful picnic at the park to me!
More pics in the shop.
Ooo, and I have more to post in a minute.
