It's Friday again, and time to link up to Amy's Sew & Tell Friday and Andrea's Lush Friday! I am so grateful for both these blogs and their link-ups - they keep me on track and make me finish my projects. As any of my family members can tell you, I am seriously finish-challenged - but I'm getting better thanks to Amy and Andrea!
So what have I finished this week?
This is "Caribbean Reflections" - a scrappy version of Karrie Lyne's wonderful Moda Bake Shop recipe, "Random Reflections".
I had the beautiful blue Kona on hand, left over from an earlier project, and the remainder of the fabric is all pieces gleaned from my stash.
Karrie's recipe is very well written, and a joy to make, even using stash fabric that had to be cut instead of the jelly rolls she wrote it for!
I am especially pleased with the bright, cheery aspect of this quilt - it will soon be going to help cheer up a 17-year old girl just diagnosed with cancer. She will be going through chemo soon and we hope that this will brighten up her days in a dark time.
For those of you interested, we had a great week with the potty-training - only one accident! The Lillibug is growing up fast! We spent the week eating "picnics" on the living room rug - she loves to get pieces of my fabric and spread them out for picnic blankets and creating pretend "food" from anything she can find - balls, empty bowls and spoons, you name it! Then after the picnic she gets out more fabric to make nap mats, blankets and pillows. I asked her the other day just how many pieces of fabric she needed, and you know what she said?
"All of them, Nana!"
Out of the mouths of babes........
"Whoever has the most fabric in the end, wins!"
