This Week

New Quilt by jenib320

It's been another busy week, I don't even know where to start! The majority of the week wasn't all that productive, but some switch got flipped on Friday! I pieced a quilt top, started and finished the quilt above, made some progress on my table topper project, and even cleaned the apartment! Wish I was always this productive! :)

Tomorrow I'll be sharing more of the above quilt, which was made with this bundle courtesy of Art Gallery Fabrics, including Summerlove and new colors of Oval and Pure Elements, out in March!  I'll also have a tutorial and a giveaway to go along with it, so be sure to check back!

Mark Cesarik kindly sent over some of his upcoming line, Cosmic Burst for me to play with! I've been in a patchwork mood this week, so I paired it with some Kona solids (Stone, Bright Pink, Papaya and Royal)! Now I need to figure out some backing!

I made a little progress on my table topper! I wanted to find a pattern that used lots of different fabrics since I was working with quite a few colors! I thought about finally using the x and + blocks but ended up landing on Jolene's granny square blocks. I'm making them tiny like Randi's blocks so that they'll fit!

I also pieced together my pillow top for the Pillow Talk Swap! Now I'm adding some special quilting to it!

I made donuts for the first time! They were SO easy! Way too easy, and delicious! I used this recipe! :)

  5. When in the world did you find time to sleep? Or did you?

    It seems that Granny Squares are everywhere all of a sudden and just might be the perfect answer to a project that I have in mind.

    Have a great week!
