Finally finished!

It has been a long scrappy month but I am finally finished with some big projects. My good friend gave me a layer cake for Christmas and the colors and fabrics were so bright and summery. I finally found the right pattern, thanks to Jasmine, over at Quilt kisses. It is a Jenny Doan tutorial you can find here. I just love the way it turned out. It is happy and ready for the beach!
I have also been working a little at a time on a scrap improv quilt and I am finally done!!  I absolutely love this one and it is staying with me. I think of all the pretty quilts I made as I look at all the scraps put together. I wish the pictures were better.

I have also been working a long time on all these string blocks....120!! It is Done! Queen size! I made it for the guest room upstairs and there are a lot of mistakes but it will do just fine in the guest room and I am happy.

Finally, it was my grandsons 1st birthday and he had a dinosaur party. well,, I made him  a dino bib and a dino banner on his high chair, but I think he liked the cake best,

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts and
Confessions of a fabric addict


  1. I love the dinosaur bib! And your quilts look really amazing, especially the string quilt - well done!

  2. Congratulations on your big finishes! I find that I am also more attached to some scrap quilts because they are full of memories for quilters. I love looking at my improv quilt and saying what project a fabric came from.
