Loving #3...


I am loving #3 quilt who is for Miss T., our four year old granddaughter. It measures 45"x50" -- which is plenty big for her because she is such a little peanut! I don't know what it is about this one -- it's certainly simple -- but I love the design with the cute fabrics...


I've finally figured out how important it is to have white or some other plain fabric to give your eye a rest. The white also frames all the other cute prints and colors. This is just my opinion, of course, not necessarily the experience of a great quilter.


I used a lot of my stash for this fabric. I loved picking all these shades of pink and incorporating them into something fun...


I posted a video recently on my Just Another Hang Up Facebook page about how to join the binding "tails" on a quilt. I followed the simple instructions to a "T" and it worked perfectly!


For the back I used Moda, Just Another Walk in the Woods, Forest Furries in Pink...


...and Camelot Fabrics, Wilderness Arrows White. {Love. Love. Love.}


Those two fabrics together are A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E.



Once again I used the flower long-arm quilting pattern that I've used on several other quilts. It's perfect  for little girl's quilts...


It was so warm and beautiful outside today -- in the 70's. It makes me want to plant flowers and mow the lawn. In a week or so I'll start cleaning up the yard and planning outside projects! Can't wait!

Good evenining, Suzanne,
I scrolled back through your week to see the photo of your darling new grandbaby. Congratulations! Your quilts are so beautiful...you have a special talent for putting fabrics together. You have inspired me to maybe try my hand at quilting next year when I am retired. Happy Weekend. ~Natalie
