Done with One and started Another

Well I finished the top of the quilt of Valor this last week and spent this morning quilting it so all that is left is the binding. I feel like a mad possesed woman, I can't sleep till I get done. Some projects have a life of their own and insist on being finished before it will let me move on. I look like a mad woman and I would take a picture for you to see but then you would never come back.

We had a new addition to the family a couple of weeks ago. Maddox was 7lbs 9oz and 21 inches long. You would think since it takes 9 months that I would have had plenty of time to make a baby quilt but nooooooooo I had to wait till it was upon me to get me in gear. Well I bought the cutest frog fabric kit that had a stuffed animal. Do you see Mr. Lean Beans? He is helping me put together a drunkards path with the frog fabric. So cute, I hated to cut it but it only hurt a little and will be all well when I get it done.

Frogs are on my mind, I added some "Before the Kiss" fabric to the store. So cute, I am trying to decide what I can make with it. Maybe you have a suggestion.

Quilt of Valor

This is a little something I started before Christmas and couldn't seem to find the time to get it finished. I wanted to make a quilt for a local boy who just lost his legs and an arm in Afghanistan. So I decided today was the day. Well if I hadn't done 20 of the star points wrong, you might be viewing a completed top. I took them out and redid them, there was no way around it. I wanted it to be perfect.

This is the pile I started with this morning.

If you look close you can see my error. I just hate when I do that.

This is the finished stack of blocks. That I will have to put together another day.

My Favorite Project for 2011

This was my favorite project for last year. I started it during my New Years vacation and I finished it about March. I gave it away which was really hard because it turned out so nice. I don't usually make the same pattern twice but this one is one I am planning on making again. It is called Pavers by Eagles Nest Designs.
