The Quilt

Ever have a present that you wanted to keep for yourself? This was mine. After it was pieced, quilted, washed and dried, I wasn't sure I could part with it. But it was less than a week before we were leaving for my parents and what else would I get them? So gift it, I did.


Here's the front. It was supposed to be this quilt. But I switched it up a bit. I used an old bundle of fat quarters that I got on clearance. I love them. But that was also part of the reason I hated to give it's not like I can go out and buy more fabric to replicate this quilt! It's a one of a kind for sure.


Thanks to my friend Diana, who JUST started quilting (crazy mad woman made 3 quilts in about a month!), I had to add a cute strip to the back. Extra work, but I love it!


It got plenty of use this trip. Especially because it was winter. And we got snowed in. And lost power. It really was fun, but I sure was grateful for any extra blankets :)

And I still think it would look awefully nice in my house.

I forgot to post this. Guess I was enjoying whisking my kids off for a surprise ski trip & failed to click post. But here it is anyway, albeit 2 weeks late!

Merry Christmas!

Love designing my own holiday cards. Love Vistaprint sales. Love how cute my little girl's flower girl dress turned out. And LOVE this picture of my darling kiddos. Hope you all had a great Christmas!
