A quilt I made a year ago finally is going to find a new home! My friend Stephanie and her friend Abe are working to raise $100,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Which is truly ambitious and exciting! I thought maybe this quilt could help them raise some funds. It's a bright and happy quilt and I'm excited to see it go!

I finally purchased some Parisville fans in pomegranate to back my quilt! I also chose a variegated thread to quilt with. Now just to sandwich and baste!
Here is a photo of the quilt top that was finished a couple years ago! It is a pattern by Quilt Dad for Free Spirit!

Yesterday I did a little painting with my son Antonio who is 4. He loves to draw and paint so I thought it might be fun to paint something with him.
He loves drawing shapes and using lots of colours.
I love the modern feel of this painting :)

I decided to do a little Pink Penguin paper piecing for my FLQS partner. These are such fun blocks to make.
I really love this indigo coloured block.
I'm adding some machine embroidered wording to the small quilt as well.

I machine embroidered an address tag holder from an image of my latest painting below.
I really love how it turned out and am so happy with the result!

So this is my progress so far, border number two is on! I love all of the scraps in this quilt! It is soooo much fun to make!
Here is after I put border number one on.
This is where I looked at the book sample and tried to imagine where I needed to go! I think adding the chambray border was a good pick! Follow the fun on instagram!

I decided to make a quick gift for my parents in law's 50th wedding anniversary. Just about the only things they decorate with are small pillows in their minimalist style home. So I thought I'd make something they could use. Here is a look at the process:
The cover is fully removable with a zipper and can be washed separately from the pillow. It is also quilted with warm n natural so it stands nicely on its own.
