Wow, I finished the T-shirt quilt top I was working on earlier this month! It turned out beautifully! I had to self-design each block, since each shirt was a different color. You can see a picture of it before borders were put on, on my Facebook page. The batik fabrics are gorgeous! Now I hope to quilt a flannel baby quilt for a church donation. It is a fun pink and chocolate brown theme.
I am joining in my first swap in several years and I am very excited. We are doing a year of mug rugs! I am already thinking about what I might do for my March assignment-some clever take on St. Patrick's Day.
I tried a new recipe last night, one that I found on Pinterest. It was a recipe for Spinach Cups. I varied the recipe to include baby portabella mushrooms and scallions for a bit of extra flavor punch. They were absolutely delicious!
Have a great week and sew up a blue streak!

I am working to finish the top of a T-shirt quilt. It has been challenging since each shirt is a different size. I am working on the math to make all of the sashing strips fit into rows. The sashing is batik fabric and it is beautiful! I will post pictures shortly. On another note, my young nieces LOVED their quilted journal covers that I made them for Christmas. As soon as I get the camera working again, I will share pictures of those too. Yes, my cheapo camera gave out...right before Christmas! So, hopefully I can replace it soon. Have a great weekend and happy quilting. Oh, and I am going to the LQS for the pajama sale tomorrow. Early birds get 30% off!
