Rainbow Bricks Finish

I finally got this first NICU quilt of the year finished. I just couldn't find the time to work on it like I wished, but it's all done now.

I used a loopy stitch on the border to give it a little more personality. Not that it really needed any.

So, now I can move on to a new project. And I'm going to use the pattern I found here as inspiration. :) Can't wait!

Thanks Tonya for the beautiful fabric!

Pig Sooie Part Deux

I decided to add some kitchen towels to the pot holders I made. I took a little Me time Sunday afternoon and whipped them up.

I very much enjoyed doing this project and am thinking I might like to make more. Easy shower gifts eh?

If I could get some other big name team fabrics, I might just make some for fans of our rival teams.....well, I dunno about that.

Linking up with Marcia again with Minutes for Me!

Hogs in the Kitchen

Last week, I found a little Me time and created these pot holders/hot pads for a cousin.

Most Arkansans are dedicated Razorback fans, so it is a safe bet she'll like them. I've noticed Razorback decorative items in her house so I think I'm good to go with it.

I have a matching hand towel in the works and will share that soon. I'm linking up to Marcia's Minutes for Me.

First Quilt of the Year

I've begun the first charity quilt of 2012. I'm using lovely rainbow colors that mostly came from my blog friend Tonya.

I don't know if there is a pattern out there some where like this, but I drew several designs one evening while watching tv. This is the one that I liked the best and the one I thought would look best with these colors. I have the top all done except for one more border strip. Since it's a rainbow, I'll use a simple pale blue for the backing to mimic the sky.

I learned the hard way to pay close attention to my drawing. Again, the seam ripper was my best friend.

And I'll leave you with a game of hide and seek with  LMW and Nanna....
