A finish or two: Sweet and Baby!



Crossroads  52"x 52"

It has been far too many months since the birth of my 'great' nephew.  I persevered,  put my nose to the grind stone, bit the bullet and got this little guy quilted.   This quilt is a kit with a bazillion kona solids in it by Robert Kaufman.  Super easy but how to quilt it was a baffler! I ended up with straight line directional quilting lines in Aurifil gray. 

The white word fabric has the names of the colors in a 96 pack of Crayola colors. I thought it was super fun to put on the back of all these colors...until I wanted to quilt it. :)  The gray thread worked pretty well.



Today I was so lucky to wrangle my friend Jen from Jennifer under the Juniper tree blog. We headed out for some adventures today including holding my quilt out near some cool train tracks.   After we spotted some quilty inspirations in the area.

Totally fun quilt idea...right?  Then we headed to some fabric stores and for a light treat break.   Aside from the heat it was a great day!! 


My previous finish was a mini that I made for one of my guild raffle prizes. It was a 'sweet' treat to represent our ice cream sundae social.


Improv ice cream...gotta love it!
