A Pretty Pink Quilt



Finally a finish! To say I have under gone some life changes is an absolute understatement! And as a result I have not had much time to sew. However, I did finally get this cute little pink quilt finished. (And not a minute too soon. I the tiny recipient was born in Dallas, Texas a week ago.) Yipee!




And of course, I pieced the back!
It felt really good to be sewing again. After taking an unintended breather, (Your life falling apart usually makes that happen)I'm back to sewing my brains out whenever possible.




And more exciting news? My girlfriend, Miss V,Is coming to Austin on Wednesday. We are going to Houston for the BIG SHOW on Friday. (Yes, that's right 5 days of quilt stuff together! Yipee!!!) So if you see two tall women (I'm 5'8 and she is 6 ft) with short hair at the quilt show in Houston, it could very well be us. So, come say "HI"! We'd luv to visit ya!
Happy sewing!!!

I love your quilting on this...did you have to mark off lines to do that loopy thing around a square thing you always do so nicely?
It's ok, she knows me, and I am sure she knows what on earth I am taling about...
It looks great! I love the fabrics you used... I don't think I have any of them!

speaking of wed. can I come now? I need an escape... but I guess I better fix my darn camera first...

Thinking of you often and hoping life falling apart means it will be stitched back together more beautifully. Sending prayers and hugs. (Seriously. Make V give you an extra from me!)
