Keep Calm, Craft On

{I am linked up with Nicole at Frontier Dreams for this post}

This weekend I finished a piecing a quilt for a friends little girl.  I love how it turned out, so bright and colorful!  Now I just need to pick a backing and decide whether or not to do a border.  I was thinking it might look nice to do either a narrow white on white patterned border or none at all...what do you think?

Here is a beautiful stack of fabrics I picked out for my pinwheel quilt...I can't wait to get started on it.  I just love pinwheels!

The fabric I was waiting on came in this weekend for my sampler quilt, so I really need to finish up writing out the cutting instructions and then get started cutting all the squares out. Exciting!  I can't wait to finish this project up, since it's been a long time coming.


  1. lovely quilt I particularly love quilts done in all squares and rectangles :) craft on sister!

  2. I love the new fabric - especially the white with blue scribbles! So pretty!

  3. Love the fabrics you picked for your sampler quilt. It should make a fantastic quilt. I have to get my butt moving on a quilt as well but other projects keep cutting in the queue. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Love both projects!! Can't wait to see the new ones in person :)

  5. Love them both, gorgeous fabrics. :) And I vote for a white border on the pink! :)

  6. Beautiful fabrics!! I vote for a white border!
