all girls considered

It was time to do a girl quilt and since my friend's daughter, Reagan's B-day is coming up in Jan. what better colors to use than pinks, greens and oranges 8)  Simple cuts coupled with simple hand piecing and viola---a girl quilt top.

The back was pieced with a very soft color scheme of flannel and Chez Moi with some beautiful mint green panels (one on each side).  Squealing with excitement over these colors folks!!

Some gingham in dark pink  I picked up yesterday for the binding.

Pinned and ready for some free motion action.  Yes since this little recipient isn't going to be looking at my quilting job AT ALL probably, I am psyched now to practice away.  Aren't those Kona colors just a rainbow of yummy goodness??!!  So glad I pinned with the special plastic colored clip on thingies and used my Kwik Clip too--try it for yourself--so worth the money.

Between all this sewing I have taken on some more cooking in the kitchen and here are some delicous and EASY donuts I created the other morning for Ayden and I.

Biscuit mix, oil, a wok, sugar, cinnamon and lemon sprinkles= Heaven!!

Why then I had to go lose some of those calories and quickly if I might add;0)  So off I went to my favorite quilt shop!

Walked in the door to It's a Hoot first off!!!

And a few other FQ's waiting for me to snatch them up and love on them!

Then of course I had to have this and I think it was about 5 sec tops for me to snatch that up!!  Central Park I LOVE every last bit of this fabric line by Kate Spain<3  <3 <3  The colors are gorgeous.

I also received this book in the mail a few days ago from a giveaway that I entered over at Learn to Quilt.   Thank you Chris Dahl!  It looks to be very interesting and I cannot wait to dive into it.

 Maybe if  I stay away from the sewing machine long enough and OH the kitchen too eh?---he,he,he,he,he!

See ya''ll later!

Oh yes, I do love the girly quilt! Such fun colors to play with. Easy donuts? Oh my, they look so delicious. We love donuts in our house, so I might have to try those. I really much purchase some Central Park fabrics too, so I'm drooling over your charm pack.
