baileymarie04 Stealing a few quiet moments while the little one sleeps. Also, my scrappy trip has officially become my favorite.quilt.ever. I have so many sweet memories tied up in the making of this quilt. It was one of those last minute projects I squeezed in while waiting for my baby to make his appearance. I kept thinking I wouldn't have time to finish it, but I sewed the last stitches on the binding the day before he was born. And then when we got home from the hospital it was waiting for us, and we used it so much those first few weeks, it's in the background of a lot of the pictures we snapped of him. Even now it's the first quilt he reaches for when he wants a blanket. I always hope that maybe a few of my quilts might become family heirlooms someday; not because of any great beauty or skill involved, but because of the memories we have associated with them. So there you go, a really long and random post about a little quilt that means a lot to our little family.

myquiltdiet This was so fun to see on my Pinterest feed this morning. 2390 pins :-). I sleep under this quilt every night. I absolutely love looking at it :-). Plus, when my kids (and hubby) spill on it while watching movies, I don't freak out because the pattern hides everything :-) 5d

oneshabbychickhawaii An old #WIP that I pulled out for tomorrow's #oahumqg meeting. I'll be sharing on the #scrappytriparoundtheworld quilts. It's always fun to pull out an old project and see so many out of print fabrics luckily I have the strips all cut out. 5d

hannlib #stqb #siblingstogether October blocks all done for you @fabricandflowersuk I had forgotten how much I dislike making these blocks which is why my #scrappytripalong ended up rather small! 7d
  •   fabricandflowersuk Oh no, sorry to give you nasty blocks!!!! I picked them because they're meant to be quick!!!! Love them, thanks Hannah! X 7d
  •   hannlib @fabricandflowersuk they were quick and they are very clever, just don't float my boat for some reason!! Glad you like them, and thanks for banishing any lingering thoughts of repeating this quilt 7d
  •   helenlay82 Mine was my first quilt, I loved making it but I pin basted & tried to quilt straight lines - bad plan! 7d
  •   fabricandflowersuk Hee hee. Glad to be of service ;) x 7d
