The Party is Over

Thank you so much Kelly and Joan for hosting an incredible Spring Sewing Party - I had so much fun. I will do my very best to attend every Charming Girls and Boys Party :-)

I finished my project - it's officially a flimsy and I'm thrilled with the results. If I can find some backing in my stash I plan to quilt this one ASAP. It will look adorable on a small quilt rack in my home this Spring.

I used fabrics from several Me & My Sister Designs/Moda lines and the Feed Sacks pattern from Scrap Basket Surprises by Kim Brackett of Magnolia Bay Quilts.

Thank you so much for partying with me today. I hope you had as much fun as I did.

In Friendship!


Update
(1:30pm)

4 of 20 blocks - I'm finding myself humming "In my Easter Bonnet" LOL
Yes, there is a second little pile of cute fabrics (aka kit) for YOU to make one for YOURSELF.

Now I'm off to check in on some of you - don't want to miss anything! Be back later.


PAR-TEE
TIME
UPDATE
Time to party - been out to breakfast with my sweet hubby and now I'm in my sewing room ready to sew the day away.

Remember these - it's two piles for two (hopefully) sweet quilts. One for me and one (kit) for you. teehee
Here's the start of mine! :-)

See you later!




Party Time




Tomorrow is the day - I'm going to a Spring Sewing Party - woohoo!!!! Spring is my favorite season so I'm really excited. Need to make my final project decision later today. See you tomorrow.


In Friendship!
