I will be taking a break this summer as I have a baby due in August, but I can still squeeze in a few quilts before then.

This is a quick little picnic quilt I made as a bridal shower gift for one of my husband's co-workers.
Since it was just meant to be a picnic quilt, I went "against the rules" and made it out of sheets. I washed the red ones beforehand in HOT water, hoping that the next time it's washed it won't bleed onto the white.
Some friends went in with me on the gift, and we also got a cooler, and some picnic supplies. The quilt looked so cute when it was wrapped up with a gingham ribbon and some fireworks!

"We" includes a whole crew of aunts, cousins, sisters, friends, my dad, and Grandma. We all got together and pieced this quilt in a few hours, and we had a great time doing it. It was a surprise, so Erin didn't get to be there, and I feel bad that she missed out on all the fun.

Leave her a comment and tell her a little about yourself to be entered into this FABULOUS giveaway.
Nicole used to be my neighbor when our husband's were both in grad school. We'd sit out on the lawn and chat while our little one's played in the grass. Ah, I miss those days. (Not the school part, though)
She is AMAZINGLY talented at sewing, decorating, cleaning, organizing, and is just an all around nice person, so go on over and meet her!

My dad, who inspired me to quilt, is a baker. His birthday is next week, so I made him this bouquet of "flours". There are 13 sacks of flour (a baker's dozen) and a wooden spoon, some spatulas, and a set of measuring spoons that say pinch, dash, and smidgen. The "vase" is a flour sifter.
It has nothing to do with quilting...but I thought you might enjoy it :o)

Here's a sample of some of the AMAZING quilting I saw:
I love the variation in the quilting in this one

I'm in the middle of a really fun "Americana" quilt, and I'm getting excited to pull out my red, white, and blue decor. I like to keep it out from Memorial Day 'til September 11th.
I'd also love to see any homemade projects that anyone might have going on for Mother's Day...send me a link!

Thanks for your help, Cami!
Vanessa came over while we were working and we got a sneak peak at her latest project...it is darling.
I'm hoping to finish a few of my UFO's in the coming weeks. I think I can...I think I can...

...When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible. Put on a clean dress. Keep a little bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals. Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on...(If) you are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing as you should..."
(Thanks to my husband Todd, for the quesadilla's. Thanks to V for the bag of chocolate. And thank HEAVEN, for video games)
