Quick Finish

Well here it is, a completed quilt-along quilt. All ready to go for the next baby. Assuming that it's a girl and these are the nursery colors.
Again if you haven't done a quilt-along with Lori, I strongly suggest that you do. They're quick and fun. And if you're like me, you make them bigger or add borders and you have a baby quilt.
So check it out. She has other tutorials too.

While I was going through my stash looking for fabric, I came across a few things I probably will never use again. Books, patterns, fabric and what nots. I have a thought, what about a "Pass it on" box that will travel from blogger to blogger with items removed and then replaced with the next bloggers leftovers. What do you think of this idea? I not talking about new everything. I talking books that no longer appeal to us. Patterns that we will never use again. Fabric we now find ugly or just know we'll never get around to it.
Let me know what you think. Because I'm sure another persons leftovers may be someone else treasure box.

Take care, Brandie

Hi Brandie, I too am doing the quilt along with Lori. I have finished up the blocks and side setting triangles. Going to go to Debby's this weekend and get the perfect gold for my setting squares. Yours looks great! Hope to see you soon gal!

Your "not so" Pink Lemonade looks fantastic as does your quilting! Will it come along with us to show and tell?
Great idea with the pass it on box. I've started one with all sorts of fabric which made it heavy, post it on Freecycle with a note written on the box asking that fabric is taken and added and then reposted. It moved along for six months or more.

So pretty!! Looks so different than Lori's version of Pink Lemonade. Your model in the last post is the best!!

Hmm, that box idea is pretty interesting but I sure have difficulty parting with anything. LOL

Lori said...

Wow! You are done?! It is fantastic!!
