I'm back from vacation and even managed to sew the fastest quilt top I've ever made! I'm not thrilled with my fabric choice - Picnics and Fairgrounds by Denyse Schmidt. I think the line shines as small patchwork but I still like the top. And it only took a couple hours to sew a king size. Talk about instant gratification! The pattern is Turning Twenty and I highly recommend it for a fast quilt with big pieces. But I recommend using larger scale prints. I also bound a quilt, which I'll blog about later.
you so much for all the bread suggestions and nice comments about the
bread basket! I'm sorry that the pictures weren't fantastic. I didn't
count on having no internet OR cell reception while I was gone and had a hard time getting everything uploaded. I also feel like a nob for not including the name of the bread basket designer! She is Rachel Roxburgh of Roxy Creations. I am so sorry, Rachel. Your pattern rocks!
I just want to remind everyone that I will be drawing names tomorrow for the zakka along
give away so you still have a chance to win the best thread on earth

sample! To enter, leave a comment on this post.
