A Very Special Quilt Received….

Tonight I got a phone call from my friend Cathy thanking me for the love quilt I organized, assembled & quilted for her after the passing of her mother earlier this year.  The blocks were made by the ladies of the #Quiltchat chat room.  I collected the blocks, assembled the top and then quilted and bound it.  This week I sent the quilt to our friend Jennifer who lives near Cathy and she delivered the quilt in person today.

Cathy loves bright colors and kitty cats and this quilt combines both.  It was great to catch up with Cathy again over the phone tonight and I’m so glad that she loves her quilt.

Here’s pictures of the quilt.

A Musical Evening….

Last night my daughter and I went to a quaint venue in Easton, MD called the Nightcat and enjoyed some fantastic music!!  Here’s a video from last night that we found earlier today.  I’d sent Keaton (the singer) a Twitter message and asked him to play this song since it is my favorite (as well as the ringtone on my phone) :)

I hope you enjoy as much as we did :)

Charming Girls Quilt Club!

Well here I go jumping on the proverbial bandwagon LOL.  Over at Charming Chatter a challenge has been issued to finish a project a month.  So I’m gonna go for it!

My daughter is going to a conference this month and needs an overnight bag.  A couple months ago I spent the weekend with my BFF and we made matching overnight bags (you can get the pattern here).  So I’m going to make one for my daughter using some leftover fabrics from the quilt I made her for Christmas.  Here’s a picture of the pattern and some of the fabrics I’m using.catalogparisbag 

002I’m looking forward to finishing this for her and I think she’ll be surprised :)

For the last couple of months my quilt mojo has been MIA.  But thanks to the Wabbit Daze Gang it’s starting to come back.  I keep telling the “Gang” they need to come east and help me find my mojo, but they seem to be doing a good job from afar :)

Wish me luck!
