I heart making quilts

This last month has been a juggling of stitching whenever I could and still continuing my goal of healthy new family meals and just the rest of life as I know it, pounding impatiently. I've had little ones on my lap and crawling around 'helping' me safety pin quilt after quilt. This first one was a 24 hour extravaganza! I still can't believe the miracle that I was able to finish in time for a friend to fly out to her sister and new niece.
  
This quilt was long awaited. I believe Katie has requested a quilt from me for the last 4 years at least! I have to say being able to be in California this last weekend and hand deliver this was beyond satisfying! Katie was over the moon! I really love what a departure this quilt is from my usual. I love it's retro modern feel. It's cheerful and simple. It was a pleasure to make for Katie and I am just so pleased to have a new skill under my belt.
I made this quilt for one of my bestfriends. She just got married! I am so excited that this quilt will follow them to the beach and snuggle them on a cold night. Mary and Adam were showered with homemade blankets, lucky couple! I had so much fun doing something of a Mary Ingelbright feel, for my very own Mary Ann. I love this quilt and I love you Mary!
