Flower Fairy Quilt

Just wanted to share the quilt I just finished for my mom's birthday.  She and I made a little field trip up to my favorite fabric store in the universe, where she picked out an alphabet panel from Michael Miller's Flower Fairy line, along with a pretty green swirly fabric to coordinate.  At home, I added the blue flower fabric and a dusty blue print from the Metro Living line (love!) for the binding.  It's so her- these colors are all over her house, and for as long as I can remember she's loved those flower fairy prints from the 1920s

Happy Birthday, Mom!!

Kitty Cat Mini Quilt

Yesterday I tried my first mini quilt.  I needed a little mat I could put under my cats' food dish, and I figured I could do a whole lot better than the dishtowel that was doing the job up to that point.  I dug in my scraps for some fun Heather Ross (see the kitty/seafood theme?), and accented with some orange Katie Jump Rope.  I loved how quickly this project came together - very satisfying! 
Hmm... what else in my house would look better sitting on a mat?

Last One for Awhile...

LeeAnn's Block

My last block for the Freedom Swap!  Well, technically I have one more to do, but the fabric hasn't even arrived yet, so I feel like I'm off the hook for that one for now.  I mailed 15 happy little blocks off to various parts of the world yesterday afternoon.  Now I get to sit back, relax, and wait for my blocks to find their way home to me!!
