Give Away

The very very talented Lila Tueller is giving away this fantastic quilt. I love it! Especially the colors and the cute little ruffles and the scalloped edge and the flower in the middle. Head over to her site here:

Since, I know this won't get to you ON your birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It is in the mail!

This is Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane. I first saw this new line on-line. But I didn't fall in love with it. BUT (and there is a but) When I saw it in person- I FELL (fell hard) in love with it! This just looks like you Tiff. Of course.... like most of our quilts..... I have one too! And I will finish mine! (hopefully)
(finished product)
notice the little pink border. It is only .75" cut. So sewn it is like less than a 1/2" thick! And.... do you notice the cream border fabric? Yep, it is from your old curtains from your first house.
back of the quilt/ pieced together to add some PIZAZZ! (actually I just didn't have enough to cover it--- but this is TOTALLY the cool thing to do anyways!)
back of the quilt
stitched with circles.

Of course---- the staples. Quilting gloves a MUST have..... and the Mountain Dew.... And even MORE MUST HAVE!!!
Another must have- Sharp Sissors.
My helper, helping me pin it.
getting ready to quilt it.

Don't you just LOVE the holiday quilts.......

Decorate with a quilt that says "LOVE is in the AIR". Here are a couple Valentines Day Quilts.

These are fun Valentines Day quilt ideas-
the hearts are all pieced together. (above)

Table runners

Hand appliqued hearts.

Stitch hearts on your quilts and have them fray as they are washed.

The OLD stand by- strip quilt!

P.S. unfortanately only Shannon can take credit for all of these. Yep, I don't think I did one of them. My valentines quilt TOP only is in a box waiting to be quilted..... huh No surprise!
