I'm so very grateful for God's Son and what He's done in my life. If you don't know what I'm talking about and would like to learn more, please don't hesitate to contact me!
Another reason for the title of this post is......I finally finished the quilt for our granddaughter's b'day, which is tomorrow. Miss Brooke will turn 10 tomorrow and they are coming into town for a cookout and b'day party.
I started it way back in January, thinking I had plenty of time to get it pieced and finished way before the big day, but then I put it aside to work on some other things and well, I hate to admit it but I just finished it late last nite. LOL Does anyone ever do that besides me?? I really put pressure on myself the last couple of weeks to get it finished on time and since this is my very first pinwheel quilt and my first quilt in over 20 yrs, I think I kept putting it off because it intimidated me just a bit. Now I feel like I can breathe a little. (now I know I showed you all the Thimbleberries quilt blocks from last yr., but I have never put it all together yet, so that one doesn't count)ha.
I knew I would NOT have time to get it machine-quilted, so I had to come up w/another idea. I found some really cute flower buttons that had matching colors, so I used those to 'tack' it down(in the center of each 'pinwheel') and hold it together. Then I followed the quilt book's instructions for stitching on the binding, etc. and here's the finished product......ta-da......
I had to clear off our big 8 ft. island, so I could pin it together and put the binding on. The fabric is 'Twirl' from Moda.
On another note, I have put lots of new goodies in my Etsy shop recently(the new Lizzie Kate kits are here) along w/several other new graphs,and wool applique patterns are on the way, so take a peek if you get a chance.
I wish everyone a wonderful Easter!!
