Eventually I do get around to finishing up some of my older tops. If there isn't a deadline, quilts tend to by pushed aside. I rummaged around and found this one that uses blocks from my Stash Busters Quilt Along from September of 2013.
I wasn't totally pleased with the layout, so it waited until I had a deadline. I decided it would be a good quilt to give to charity, so it hit the top of the list for quilting and now it is ready to go. It has a very cozy flannel on the back so it will keep someone warm.
I am way behind on my Splendid Sampler blocks, but I'm okay with that.
I used Janet Clare's "Nocturnal" for this one I see that the most recent block is designed by Janet, so I may have to use some of her fabric for it!
This block was supposed to have embroidery that looked like a crocheted doily. Instead I dug out this treasured little angel that I tatted about twenty years ago. I was saving it for something special, so here it is.
"Purebred" by Erin Michael is the fabric in this block. I wanted a little horse related fabric included, so these horseshoes fit the bill.
And because one quilt along isn't enough, I decided to join Kelli's Minecraft Quit Along. I have been following Kelli's blog for quite some time. I remember how excited she was when her first pattern was published. She's come a long way since then.
This past Easter Weekend was spent playing with the Grandkids. These two spent an afternoon with us. I love this picture of them being bounced on the teeter tooter by Grandpa. They made pillowcases while visiting, but we were having so much fun, I forgot to take a picture. The other two Granddaughters came the day before for a Easter Barbecue and muffin icing marathon with Auntie Leslie. A great time was had by all.
