Mid-week update....

I've been busy while watching Dancing with the Stars and American Idol this week. I quilted this for my nephew....using the Silly Safari fabrics by Moda. I love the zebra ric rac...I bought that at JoAnn's...not where I thought I'd find something that cute. Here's my other "monkey"....making bindings...there are 6 waiting to be sewn on...yikes...I have to get crackin'. The only problem is that I am going away for the weekend.....just taking hand sewing and hand quilting.

I finished this little project tonight. I bought some vinyl covered Moda Strawberry Lemonade fabric to make a splat mat for DD2. I used stash binding and just machine stitched it. Total price $17....Price at Land of Nod...$42 or something...I did better making one myself obviously.
I also pulled this WIP out and completed the top..now it needs to be layered for quilting. Honestly I don't know why I abandoned this project as it took about 20 minutes to assemble... As you can see I really love my 1930's repros....

What a terrific idea with the splash mat and what a savings! Don't you just love knowing when you take out an abandoned project that it only really would have taken minutes to finish it up???
