The colors in this quilt makes my heart smile.  It's a happy quilt.  I was inspired to make this one by 2 quilts I recently made (Thanks Barbie & Erin!).  I used the bright colors from the Remix line by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman.  Then I added more bold colors from the Kona Solids...YUM!  I think I need to get some more of the Remix & Kona...LOL!

Is it just me or does anyone else think of Kona COFFEE when they see the words Kona Solids?  Anyhoo, I digress...

The second one was for a sweet gal that wanted a quilt made for an anniversary present for her husband...I know...too cute!  I loved how she wanted me to use a special pair of plaid shorts & shirt in this quilt.  I would have loved to have gone on 'The Price is Right' show!!! lol!

I've been busy sewing!  And that's a good thing, but that also means I've been in 'lurker' mode.  I haven't been able to leave comments like I used too but I've been watching you...I know that sounded a little creepy but ya know what I mean...hehe!

Have a great weekend!

I won an AWESOME bundle of fabric called Summersault by Erin McMorris from Free Spirit!  You can find tons of inspiration on their website Free Spirit.  Or if you have a minute, they have a great blog.  You can never have too much inspiration!

Remix by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman

This is what I've been working on & I just finished it yesterday.  Erin wanted the Remix fabric by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman, with Kona solids.  She wanted the softer colors.  Well, when I went to look at the fabric she was talking about, I fell in love with the entire line.  It's such a girly, vibrant line.  So, when I placed the order, yep...I picked out some fabric for me! BIG GIGGLE!  I hope to have my quilt done soon.

Anyhoo, I've been in lurker, flag football, 3 orders for quilts and other life's been hard to keep everything balanced.  Somethings gotta give...& it's blogging, until I can get balanced.  lol!

Have a wonderful week!

A Razorback & 4 Wonky Stars

I needed to let my hair down so I created this.  I would have made a Green Bay Packer one for my dh or a Miami Dolphin one for my ds but I didn't have the fabric.  Maybe for Christmas?
