Spinning My Wheels!

Have you ever had one of those days - you know the type - where you feel like you've been spinning your wheels all day. You've just been flitting from one thing to another and accomplishing absolutely nothing. That's the kind of day I was having today. Ugh!

Then late this afternoon I decided that it was time to lay out my Prairie Sweets blocks. After all, I finished appliqueing the last two last night. Once I got all the blocks laid out I started sewing them together and it's now finished and officially a "flimsy". WooHoo!

This quilt was such a change of pace and I can't begin to express how much fun I had making it.

It's an all Fig Tree quilt - LOL. I used my Allspice Tapestry fat quarter bundle and three different background prints. The pattern is by Fig Tree Quilts and featured in Fresh Vintage issue #6. (please pardon the wrinkles - it needs a good pressing).

Thank you for stopping by - please come again!

In Friendship!!!

I love this quilt and I have wanted to sew it but it looked really time consuming/hard. Nothing ventured, I guess. It turned out so well.
