{sew} modern monday.

it's MONDAY! 
which means it's time for 
another weekly installment of 
{sew} modern monday!

{Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations

ah, monday. did you all have a good weekend? mine went way too fast, which i guess is par for the course. my little sister was home on break for a few days before she goes back to college on wednesday. so of course the weekend was jammed packed with all sorts of fun family things. but you know me, i did manage to squeeze in some quality sewing time.

on friday i decided to jump into a WiP that had been sitting in my sewing area for a while. a very long while. you've all been there, right? and somewhere along the way i fell back in love with this AMH quilt. big time. i'm seriously crushing on this quilt top. so much so that in a matter of half a day, i managed to sew up 13 blocks to round off the 12 already sewn by my {sew} beautiful bee-mates. 

all finished up, the quilt top measure 60" x 60". just the perfect size for cozy lap quilt! 

Laying the blocks out. <3

so, are you ready to see some pictures? well *ahem* there's a little issue this beautiful monday morning. the conveniently small and easy to misplace black cord that connects my DSLR to my laptop. you know, the important one. yeah, well it seems to have gone MIA. blurg! so this lovely instagram picture is going to have to hold you all over for the time being. and i promise if you come back tomorrow and check out the finished quilt top in it's entirety, you won't be disappointed. this beauty is quicky becoming one of my favorite finishes to date. :) 

<<updated: you can see more of my x and + quilt top here!>>

now it's your turn! what have you been stitchin' on lately? just link up to a blog post (or flickr picture!) and have fun enjoying all the modern sewing inspiration!  but please, link back to Canoe Ridge Creations somewhere in the post so your readers can find the party too! thanks!
