The sun came out....

... and I took some pictures of my latest quilt! This first picture is my attempt at "arty"...I'm not really good at this. (Notice chickens in lower right corner- I should have turned them around - they have polka dots on them!)

The quilt pattern is Thimble Blossoms - A Piece of Cake. And the fabric is by Thimble Blossom too - I forget the name of the collection.It looks pretty spread out on the lawn in the back yard.

Here's a close up of the quilting. I love how it looks after you launder it and it gets all soft and crinkly.

I can't believe it is already Friday. I had big plans for sewing this week but nothing has happened yet. Maybe a little tonight and tomorrow. I still need to get the borders on my Charming Stars and I'm itching to start a new quilt - the one on the cover of the Dec/Jan 2012 issue of Quilt magazine. I want to do it out of my Debbie Mumm fabrics. Hopefully I'll get a couple of blocks cut out tomorrow. Have a great weekend!

Happy stitching-

  1. Beautiful Quilt! Looks like a quick on to do. And the crinkly part is the best!

  2. It's wonderful Carol! The crinkly part is my favorite!

  3. Oh Carol, it is wonderful. Looks perfect for a picnic in that dappled sunlight.

  4. I just love the simplicity of this quilt. Great way to show off pretty fabrics too.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
