Hands2Help: Summer Slices quilt top

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

While I was waiting for a workman to arrive at our house I had just the right amount of time to sew up my Summer Slices into a little quilt top.

How is that for cuteness??
I've got a few larger chunks from this fabric line, so I'll be piecing the backing together. This little project has been pure happiness to sew.  I'm really eager to get it finished!

Hope you have lots of happiness in your sewing room today, too!

2016 FAL FABULOUS FINISH: Cozy Throw Quilt

This one has been finished for quite a while, but it's taken ages for me to remember to take photos.  There will either be a string of dark and cloudy days, or sunny days with no quilt holders available when I suddenly remember I need a quilt photo or two.

Yesterday started out really overcast, but in the late afternoon the sun popped out, so I grabbed the quilt, the camera and the HUSBAND and we went outside.

Pattern: Cozy Throw by Amy Gibson
Fabric: Craftsy Kit containing Kona Solids
Backing: Dixie 108 wide from Cluck, Cluck Sew for Moda
Size: 60 x 67
Started: Jan 2017
Finished: April 2017

Here's a close up!

A peek at the backing fabric. 

This little one turned out to be pretty cute!  I wasn't too sure while I was putting it together, but I found myself smiling as I snapped the photos.  Time to tuck this one away because it will be a Christmas gift for someone special.  

Hope you are having happy quilting adventures, too!

DAUGHTER'S City Sampler

Over the last couple weeks I've helped my daughter sew up all 100 of her Tula Pink's City Sampler into a quilt top and I thought you might enjoy having a peek!

DAUGHTER used a couple bundles of Kona solids and combined it with Pepper Kona for the sashing and borders.  I think she made a really great choice with the Pepper.  The combination really makes her brights and pastels POP!  

Hope your day is filled with color, too!
Happy Stitching!
