I got a half a day of "my life" back today. My kids are ALL in school on Fridays as of two weeks ago. But some of these I am a parent chaperone for field trips so they don't count. In fact, I consider it "negative" time because even when it's over you are still exhausted. And if we balance the equation it means even less gets done. But I thought my down time could be used up this morning sharing a quilt I finished a while ago. I don't even know when - probably a few months but if it's been longer, please don't mention it, haha. The fabric strips of Latitude were sent to me by the fabulous Kate Spain. And gosh they are luscious.

This one wound up at 52" x 52" and is in the shop (because, let's face it, I'm nearly drowning in my quilting at this point - don't tell the husband, ha).

The end of a long imprisonment.
Fabric jailed away for years waiting.
Waiting for the moment when it finally gets center stage.
And something happens in minutes! 
Okay, maybe hours. 
But it seems so much happier now.

One honeybun of L'Amour by Sandy Gervais for Moda. One wire wreath. Valentine rag wreath.
Love the texture and colors. And it even says love on it.

April Showers

Should we  ring in the New Year? 
Oh, that was bad. 
Really bad. 
Are quilt puns a thing? 
Probably not.
All the same, here it is. 
In April Showers by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.

I actually finished this quilt last year probably around March. 
And I've been so busy with the kids I haven't even posted about it.
Sad. So sad. 
And many others actually. 
But now I have a little extra motivation to get it done - reason may be soon to follow. 
There's always an adventure to be had in life. 
Wish me luck.
I don't want to jinx it. 
And it's in the shop.
