Emma by Northcott

This is my second finish this year.  Mary Ellen wanted me to make a small, old fashion baby quilt.  She wanted it to be girly with pinks and greens.  She let me decide everything else.  I was inspired by the quilt I did from the Half-Pint Quilt Along back in 2009.  There is just something special about a 9-patch block.  The fabric line is Emma by Northcott.  The quilt is so much prettier in person.  I love how the back turned out.

My first finish for 2012...

This is a Valentine's gift for Courteney's boyfriend.  Is he going to be surprised...lol!  The 4 blue squares are from a duvet cover he had in college.  I just love hearing the stories behind the shirts/fabric.

My first window appearance.

Talk about being over the moon!  If you thought you heard someone yell 'WHOHOO!' this morning...it was me...LOL!  My Schnibbles State Fair (in Bliss) is on display at the JEllen's House of Fabric quilt store.  She did a post showing her window today, you can read about it here.  If you get a chance to go to her blog, take a minute and read her story.  She is one amazing woman.

My random drawing program (aka my son) picked:  SUNNY!

I'd love to do a post about the quilt I just finished but it's in the process of being shipped to Arizona.  It's going to be a Valentine's gift for her boyfriend...too sweet!  I want her to see it before I post a picture of it...maybe this weekend.  It's already February!?!?!  I've been in lurker mode and will be in lurker mode for a while.  Even though I can't be a part of some of the cool groups out there, it sure has been fun reading/seeing your posts about your projects.
