Hot Pink for a Cousin

 Do you get excited when you start a new quilt or sewing project.  I do.  I get slightly giddy as I stack all the fabric on my cutting mat.  You know what else is exciting?  When someone wants me to make them something!  Recently my cousin asked me to make a quilt for her daughter and I was thrilled!!!  Her daughter likes hot pink and lime green.  I have the top completed.  It's 54"x60" and will make a nice throw quilt.  Now, I just have to design the back.  I like making my quilts reversible.
I also finished another baby quilt.  I used V and Co. line called Simply Color.  Have you ever read her blog?  She's pretty awesome and her stories about her family events are hilarious!  Anyway, I used a 16 patch block mimicking a Greek Cross.  It's very scrappy and CUTE.

I'm also working on some Mug Rugs for my sister's co workers, but no pics yet.

Well, That's it for now.  Hope your day is fun and beautiful. - Little Mama Hen.

  2. I particularly love the hot pink quilt top and the baby quilt is lovely too. I love deciding on the fabrics and trying out different colours. I love the fact that just changing a one tone of fabric can totally alter the mood of the quilt.
