Ah, but now I can show you my quilt. Finished!!!
I have been looking through my flickr and saying, "I have to make that." "Ooo, I have to make that too." Sew Take A Hike made one here a few years ago that I liked very much. So I grabbed two yards of each fabric, Kona Kaufman Snow and Gypsy Bandana in Jumbo Red, cut 5 inch squares and made some HSTs. Easy peasy.

The quilt was sewn on a couple of Saturday mornings, while kids were at tennis, and quilted in a week. Perle cotton stitching was added it along the diagonal. I had to use an aqua pezzie on the back. Love.
Then the dilemma is should I use it? I hand quilted it. Sure. I don't want to have this one in the closet and it is much better than the old pink blanket we usually use. We won't be eating pizza on it, but I am gladly going to trade a few grass stains for some memories.
I am going to enjoy my time today visiting Amy, and Sarah this week and finding what other finishes are out there.
