Introducing................

I feel like I have a new bed when really it is a new quilt for my bed.  New,warm,snugly and...well.......nice!

I chose Kona Bahama Blue for the binding and it tied it all in quite well in the end.  I think the other colors are thankful!  I have some left over too..better than not enough right?

There is a light and airy feeling in the room presently.  Calm comes to mind:)  I am really enjoying the size as well----------------BIG!!!!

The white sort of worries me,but that is what they made a washer and dryer for I guess;)

Newsflash to myself I can hand quilt a whole quilt this size in about a month and 1/2 if need be and enjoy it!!!!  Because of the light thread I used to quilt it,it was not very photogenic---I tried!  I am very pleased that all my flower markings came out in the washer!!

All of the paper pieced blocks went into the backing,but I think they may have gotten lost a bit back there..you live,you learn.  A solid backing probably would have been the better route.  It's on the back:)  Who cares----lol!


finished these girls up the other day too...once those darn snaps are on it's all smooth sailing from there...but that darn snap press is something else!!  I snapped a pic right before the storm as you can see;)

:::::Ready for their debut at the craft fair:::::

Gorgeous quilt... and the Bahama Blue for the binding is perfect!

Love your wallets... admired the one you were using last Saturday and wondered how you got the snap on there so nicely!

Tell your cute son "Hi!" from me!

The quilt is so calming! I love the prints you chose, too. My quilting always doesn't show up as good when I take it out of the wash, lol - ugh! It's seriously gorgeous though!
And I loooove the wallets. I bet the snaps stink. :( But, it all is okay in the end!
