It's been a crazy week here. Hot and crazy!
My husband was gone hiking for a week,
and right before he came home, our internet and phone went down.
So now I have a large black cable running through my backyard,
waiting to be buried (someday soon, I hope!).
But at least I have a working internet again!
I did get quite a bit of sewing done this way, though --
when you can't read blogs or create new posts, there is definitely more time to sew!
I'm so happy with this little quilt!
I followed Jeni's Warm/Cool Quilt Along and made the smallest size.
Not sure yet what I'm going to do with it, as it only measures about 20 x 20,
but it's so beautiful and really makes me happy!
Both of my girls have told me repeatedly how much they love it.
"It's the most beautiful quilt you've ever made, Mommy! Can I have it?"

This week I did some catching up on the Farmer's Wife Quilt along.
It turns out that I am not good at keeping up a steady pace of 2 blocks per week.
I did 4 blocks right away, took a break, and just finished 4 more.
Oh, well, I'm not too far behind (yet)!

ooh! Love your warm/cool quilt too! And that yummy dotted star block!ReplyDelete
Think you might have to make another warm/cool quilt! Then they can have one each. Perhaps you could turn them into squishy pillows for the girls.ReplyDelete
Awww, your girls are so sweet! I'm a big fan of your warm/cool, too - there's just something about these warm/cool quilts that I love. Maybe it's all the saturated color? I love your starflower block too! I like the idea Lynne had about making your warm/cool top into a pillow, and making one for each of your girls :)ReplyDelete
Love your FW blocks and theStarflower block.ReplyDelete
The warm/cool quilt looks fabulous as well. It sounds like a great idea to make another one so both your girls can have one.

PS... I think your WC HST 20x20 project would make a great wall hanging, or put it on batting and put in a picture frame. It sure looks like a work of art to me!ReplyDelete
