thanks! and a full reveal


first off, i want to thank you all so much for your comments on my funny little fall circle quilt.  all the positive comments took me completely by surprise!  i was in a bit of a funk about it because of it's rumpliness.  i had hoped to sell it in my shop, but now i couldn't.  and then you all thought it was nice, and actually took the time to tell me that... now i think i like it after all...

you know what't the best part?  the fact that so many of you would take the extra minute to leave an encouraging comment.  so often i really like something, but don't take the time to say so.  lesson learned again.  i'm gonna try doing more of that, cause it's such a simple way to boost someone's day!

**********************



now finally some pics of this quilt.  i cannot seem to figure out an easy and pretty way to show quilts larger than baby size.  in desperation, i though of this idea.  so i found a couple of cleanish rocks, and here's the quilt.

you can read more about how this quilt started here.  i'm quite happy with how it turned out.  it will be so fun for a little girl somewhere.  (it's a twin size)


using up my stash on the back.  oh, that feels so good.


i guess if the recipient is really mod, they can use this side instead! i can't decide where to send it... Bumblebeans?
Texas Wildfires?
any ideas?

  9. I'm making child size quilts right now as part of Kate's 100 quilts for kids. I know that those can be donated to any charity that you want. Both of those you mentioned seem like a really great place to send quilts. I know that the TX Wildfire drive is looking for twin size quilts in particular which may be a little harder to come by. The quilt looks great so someone will be super happy to receive it no matter where you send it.

  10. I love your pink quilt! As a rule, I'm not drawn to sampler type quilts, but yours flows so beautifully. You've nudged me to try a sampler. Beautiful!
