Stumped. And Three Finished Quilts.

I have just finally finished a huge project that has taken me a lot of long nights and ripped stitches.  More about that later.  In the meantime, I'm stumped about what to tackle next.  I'm on vacation all next week so part of me doesn't want to start something and leave it partially undone while I'm gone, trying to relax.

I have finished three project quilts this week!  Wooohoooo!  In case you're wondering why you haven't heard from me on Twitter, I've been either wrangling three kids on Spring Break, driving to and from tennis lessons, playing my own tennis matches, or binding and photographing quilts.

One finished project is my DQS10 (Doll Quilt Swap) quilt for my partner:

I used Aneela Hoey's Sherbet Pips fabric and Elizabeth Hartman's Kitchen Windows technique.  This is the third concept I tried but the only one that came together well.

The second project I finished is the Spring Quilt Along Quilt.  Come join us to see more! 

The third project I finished is an upcoming ModaBakeShop recipe.  Stay tuned for more info.

Finally, if any of you have recommendations for what to see/do/eat in Turks & Caicos, please let me know.  Hub and I are off on Monday for almost a week alone scuba diving, etc.  We've never been there before and would love advice, especially which dive shop to use.  Our ten year wedding anniversary was last September and we are finally able to celebrate it properly :-)  If you don't hear from me next week, you'll know what I'll be up to (and get your minds out of the gutter, there will be lots of BOOK READING AND NAPPING).



  1. That is great that you are getting a trip alone to celebrate - have a great time!!

  2. Love the doll quilt. Hope you have a blast, um, reading and napping. *cough* :)

  3. Have a wonderful trip :-) enjoy :-) that is the best pips quilt I've seen! Shh! Don't tell anyone I said that :-)

  4. Chris! Oh my gosh, THANK YOU so much for this gorgeous pips quilt! I am in love with it! It is just precious and I am so lucky!

    Hope you are having such a wonderful vacation!
