What have I been doing?

Well, I've been working on this beauty! Two of the circles are hiding right now, but this " baby" quilt was a commission from my cousin. She has a baby shower this weekend, and wanted something that would be the hit of the party. So, 8 hours of my sewing retreat, 24 different fabrics, and my new beautifully quilting sewing machine turned out this love. I have to admit that once I pulled it out of the dryer I almost couldn't stand to part with it. I used the tutorial/pattern from here, and copied the quilting recommended ( free motion circles within the circles, and stippled the backgrounds). It crinkled just perfectly, if I do say so myself, and I do :-)

It has arrived in its new home, and so it is on to my next big very first craft fair in just over 2 weeks. Hmmmmm...maybe I should be sewing rather than blogging....

Wishing you all a most wonderful day. The Shmoo will be in his very first pre-school play today ( the 3 little pigs), so I am off to dress the part of the very proud mama.

Peace be with you.


  1. I'm afraid I could not have parted with that beauty - family or not! It's amazing - love it!

  2. This is just spectacular. Glad you liked the pattern.
