Lily's Quilts Quilt-a-long started!
Here is my finished block for Lily's Quilts QAL... now into week four. I missed the first four weeks so I'm just going to tackle this one block and use it as a pillow or wall hanging.
I really like the scrappiness, I just used scraps from my bin and I think it turned out really springy. I'm really into Kona greys right now so this suits my mood!
Here is the blanket I finished for my sister Starr. We have been visiting together the last three weeks over our spring break vacation and she even helped me travel with the kids back to Canada and stayed a week cleaning my house! So here is the blanket I made for her....
I really love the way the top came together with the blue/grey flannel. We used packaged satin binding from Joann's for the edging and a grey minky for the back. We sandwiched the layers with warm n natural and it's not too weighty for summer and soooo soft and cuddly!
Yesterday I was nicely surprised when my prize from Sew Mama Sew arrived! It will be such a huge help because I have to do 99% of my fabric shopping online....
