Patriot Pinwheels

I'm in love with pinwheels. Can't get enough!

Riley Blake's new 4th of July fabric is perfect. One of the fabrics is... Pinwheels! Another is awesome stars. I just loved it and made this to use as my July throw. I've started to think I need to change every month or so to a themed throw blanket, so this is just the beginning!

Car Seat Fabulous

I had to do it. My baby threw up in her carseat and, strangely enough, I considered it a great opportunity. So I took it apart completely, always something of a jigsaw and did some creative magic on it. I had put the butterfly ribbon (which is at Seasons of Home) on during a previous bout of optimism but you only have one night before you have to get it back in the car.

The soft grey stuff was on it and looks great so I just decided to cover the rather cheesy pink floral with this great fabric (I don't have a before picture darn it). I actually had to hand applique the fabric to the bottom seat. My fingers are still tender because my thimble was somewhere else and there's plastic in many parts of the cover which can surprise you and make you stick your finger. Anyway, yay it's done.

It's A Beaut!

Wow, my sisters' quilt retreat quilt finally has borders which means it's ready to go to the Natalia at Piece'NQuilt . I bordered mine in green and mitred the corners because I chose a striped fabric for the large border.

My cousin did hers in the pretty pink flower and she actually gets two from the weekend. They are perfect for her daughters' youth sized beds. I can't wait to see the girls' new room.  She picked the most beautiful minky colors too. Really bright aqua and green.
