New finish

I totally fell in love with these fabrics & this quilt. I used a variety of fabrics (Amy Butler, Jennifer Paganelli) along with a subtle white-on-white. 
This is a wedding present for a bride who likes Lily Pulitzer, green & pink, very girly.
I quilted it with my all-over swirly stitch.
It measures 72" square after washing and drying.
For now I am calling it "wedding star" but I am open to suggestions for a name!

so, I've been away for a while

I lost my father in August.

His illness and death ripped the rug out from under my feet.

We banded together to support each other, my mother, brother, husband, sister-in-law and son. Family and friends have taken care of us. I really didn't feel like sewing, quilting or blogging. I retreated, taking care of Mom, and myself.

But, I have begun sewing and quilting again. I am planning on maybe a weekly blog post. Unless I have something fantastic to share.

For now, here is one of the projects I am working on, the Metro Hoops pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful.

Please check back, I have other stuff to share!
