Birthday Celebrations and A Finished Project

Today is my little sister Lindsey's 17th Birthday!  She had "hinted" about some Monaluna fabric she had seen on the Oh, Fransson! blog a few weeks ago.   So with a little checking I chose a collection of grays, blues, and lime greens.  This Fabricworm package arrived yesterday just in time for today's celebrations.  Happy Birthday Lindsey!  I hope you enjoy!

Here's some more pictures of All Squared Up finished, too!

All Squared Up

Here's one of my latest quilts I have been working on.  I just love Amy Butler fabrics right now, and her fabric was just the right choice for this simple quilt.

I chose straight line quilting to accent the simplicity of the squares.  The finished size ended up being 25" x 25", the perfect size for a table top.  

Sometimes small projects like these are great for motivation to finish even bigger projects. I am hoping to sew the binding on later this week, so more pictures to come!

{ ...and so it begins }

I have been following quilt blogs almost religiously for the past six months, simply being inspired by the creativity of other fellow quilters.  This inspiration has motivated me towards a whole new level of quilting, and so, I have finally decided to start my own quilt blog.  While this blog endeavor is really only intended to be yet another creative outlet for myself, I hope that in some way, shape, or form my creations can spark inspiration and pass my love for sewing and quilting onto others.  Who knows where this blog will take me, but this is where it begins.....
