Hoppy Easter! :-)




Not a typo, just thinking about that Bunny coming to visit tonight!

Had to share this little project with you. It is such a perfect size for those who either have little space or little time, but still love quilting. I found this little triple quilt hanger and pattern line at a quilting show here in town. I fell in love with all of them. They are Pearl Louise Designs and each quilt is 3 1/2" x 8 1/2". She calls them "Itty Bitty Quilts for Itty Bitty Places". You can find them at
Thimblecottage.com

All these pattern books that I have collected, ran immediately thru my mind. With resizing options, I would be able to work just about anything into something this size. What a perfect way to decorate for the season, or holiday. A fun way to celebrate a birthday with a photo of the birthday person or a small collage of photos. They would take little more than scraps to complete. I have been reading up on art quilting lately, and have started to collect supplies to play with it a little. I am thinking that would be a perfect way to show off my masterpieces when they are done. Sometime down the road of course. The one thing I have managed to learn over time is my first try isn't always the masterpiece that my mind thinks it is!! hehehe

I will wrap up this week by stitching down the binding on 2, yes 2 quilts that I not only pieced but quilted this week. It was a good week here. I love the feeling of finishing up things, and 2 projects in a week is almost unheard of for me.

Hope the "bunny" brings you all the things you love. I have just found the joys of Milky Way Carmels. OK, I confess, I broke into the goodie bag early. Between them and the Dove dark chocolate eggs, I have been a naughty girl this week! But it's worth it, and besides I hear that it's hormonal! I can't be held responsible for my hormones right? :-) :-) :-)
