Fun with Elle and Dave

After finishing a long project, it is so much fun to just play for awhile in a totally different mode.
I pieced this large block for a wall-hanging for my expectant niece yesterday. It's 17 1/2" X 21 1/2" at present.

I'll be writing about this piecing technique for the upcoming issue of CQMagOnline
so I'll save process shots for then...

We are all so excited about the twins' arrival!

On another note, by good friend Cindy Thury-Smith was recently interviewed about crazy quilting by her local TV station in Minnesota. Her delightful humor shows through...so check it out..it's too short a segment but a great glimpse of my wonderful friend. You can watch it here.

Your niece will soon be one busy gal! Might they be girls?

WHAT FUN! Such a sweet memory for her.

The cottage quilt turned out fabulous! Absolutely AMAZING!

I am nearing the finish on my little CQ. Thinking about teaching a class with my unorthodox methods. We'll see.
