yummy quilt!




So this is my latest brainstorm. I made this quilt for a friend who just had a baby. i thought that Vienna's descriptions was perfect, she sat on the blanket and said " yummy, mommy". I totally agree, it is just so bubbly! So not only is this a cute quilt but I must brag a little! I finished this quilt in record time! I let my kids hold me back a little sometimes. i don't start things unless I can finish them and i just proved to myself once again that i could do more!! I started this quilt Monday night after putting the kids to bed and had it completely done and quilted except binding that night! I spent a couple hours hand sewing the binding the next day here and there and wala I was done!!! I couldn't believe that I cranked this out in my old style of when I just had one little baby and not only that but it was actually the most sane quilting project I have done. The world didn't stop and yet it was so quick to do. Now I am ready to take on a world of projects.

P.S. i was snooping around on the usual blogs and came across a friend of a friends blog. She was painting and had a couple pics. Reminded me that with this new found sense of accomplishmet I should really find the time to fit in my drawing. I miss being able to call myself an artist. Look for projects to be posted in the future.

Very cute! I love it! Is it just strips of fabric? Very creative. I like the style of the whole thing. I may have to steal the idea one day.

Very cute! I am jealous! Gail would love it if I were a quilter... I dunno. Anyway, it is absolutely DARLING. Good work, looking forward to seeing you guys next week. Hopefully I won't be barfing my brains out the whole time you're here!
