Making a little progress ...

This one has been in the works for a couple of months ... only 7 blocks to go ... or maybe a little white space is needed ... hmmm ...

WIP
This quilt is for Nichole, a friend of mine who introduced me to my current boss and helped me get my current job.

She's also expecting a new baby in October ... the baby quilt is completed ... but this one's for momma ... to say thank you.  The new baby has a big sister who is 4 and a big brother who will 3 be later this year, and I'm working on a pillow for each of them ...

So it looks like everyone but daddy will be getting a quilted gift!
My favorite block
We had a fabulous time at the cabin this weekend -- I took Tuesday off as and made it a 4-day weekend.  The simple beauty of the place really helped erase the challenges over the past month.  And look at the show the garden gave us!  John's found some fabulous new spray that really does keep the deer off.

The bloomin' cabin garden
Hope you're having a good week!

All the best
Lisa

  4. White space is an interesting idea - kind of like falling stars - maybe you could even put one block a little wonky? It's a beautiful quilt and a great gift!!
