Third quilt done

Three things to be happy about
(1) tomato basil soup
(2) a little checked apron
(3) a new recipe

Can you believe this?  It's a pizza cake!

*wiping drool from chin* Now back to our regular program...

I finished the third quilt I was working on yesterday, and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out!

I was smart enough to have made the binding when I started quilting this one, didn't have to do it yesterday.

I went with blue because the borders are scrappy blue and it sorta fits, I think...

Elyse will have plenty to look at - fairies and frogs, butterflies and marbles, cavemen and fishes....

enough to keep her entertained every time she uses the quilt!

Do little girls like jungle animals??

I don't remember exactly when I bought this piece of backing fabric, but I'm almost sure I got it from the $1.99 table at G Street Fabrics in Rockville, Maryland - years ago!

It has now been reduced to usable strips...

There's nothing like a finished quilt to make your day!

Kinda makes me want to finish another one...

Three quilts done for Christmas; three happy, happy recipients - yes!

Have a great Friday, get some of your Thanksgiving shopping done, sew forth and sew on...


  1. WOW! You are on a roll ... a roll of quilts, at that. Congratulations on a terrific finish.

  2. This makes me want to make a drunkards path quilt now. Love all the bright and fun prints in this. Congratulations on another super finish and look at that pile of love waiting to be wrapped and gifted.

  3. I'd say that Elyse is one lucky little girl. What a FUN quilt.
