2016 FAL FABULOUS FINISH: Cozy Throw Quilt

This one has been finished for quite a while, but it's taken ages for me to remember to take photos.  There will either be a string of dark and cloudy days, or sunny days with no quilt holders available when I suddenly remember I need a quilt photo or two.

Yesterday started out really overcast, but in the late afternoon the sun popped out, so I grabbed the quilt, the camera and the HUSBAND and we went outside.

Pattern: Cozy Throw by Amy Gibson
Fabric: Craftsy Kit containing Kona Solids
Backing: Dixie 108 wide from Cluck, Cluck Sew for Moda
Size: 60 x 67
Started: Jan 2017
Finished: April 2017

Here's a close up!

A peek at the backing fabric. 

This little one turned out to be pretty cute!  I wasn't too sure while I was putting it together, but I found myself smiling as I snapped the photos.  Time to tuck this one away because it will be a Christmas gift for someone special.  

Hope you are having happy quilting adventures, too!

DAUGHTER'S City Sampler

Over the last couple weeks I've helped my daughter sew up all 100 of her Tula Pink's City Sampler into a quilt top and I thought you might enjoy having a peek!

DAUGHTER used a couple bundles of Kona solids and combined it with Pepper Kona for the sashing and borders.  I think she made a really great choice with the Pepper.  The combination really makes her brights and pastels POP!  

Hope your day is filled with color, too!
Happy Stitching!

Hands 2 Help: Summer Slices!

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

A Layer Cake of Sunkissed from Sweetwater has been tucked in my stash waiting to come out and play, and the time has arrived.  I'm making a quilt for Happy Chemo as part of the Hands2Help Challenge. 

First I sliced up my layer cake.

Then I swapped the slices around and sewed up some sweet blocks.

The blocks had a little trimming so they were perfectly squared and it was time to toss them on the wall and shuffle shuffle shuffle!  Lots of smiling while shuffling these lovelies. 

Now that I have a final arrangement it's time to turn these summer slices into a very sweet quilt!

This is one of my favorite fabric lines ever--so happy and summery!  Love these colors, love the swirls and the text prints--So nice to work with on this dreary cloudy day!

Happy Stitching!
