I realized something yesterday ...

I love making the quilt tops. I really do. I love the cutting, sewing, ironing of everything. And then I have this nifty little piece of art. That I made. I love doing that. The whole ... finishing, binding and difficult quilting thing ... that not so much. So ... I have this stack of quilt tops now ... From top to bottom: a Christmas disappearing nine patch, Christmas tree blanket, the hungry caterpillar, the animals around the world, the last quilt-a-long, and now the newest addition on top too (it's for a family member having a baby ... so I won't share it until she gets it).
In my own defense ... my sweet friend wanted to make this newest quilt & I *HAD* to do it with her. She needed me. LOL. So ... as soon as I finish these new little babies I started yesterday (some gifts for some new babies on the way ) ... NO MORE NEW QUILT TOPS. ;) I decided on a cowgirl version and love the pattern so much I cut it out as a boy version too ...
My husband was home on Monday and I've been able to get a lot of sewing done because of that, it is so awesome!!! Here's quilt block #6:I am officially sick of doing each block twice. Week 5 was so time consuming! It was nice to have a really quick & easy one this time. I'm 25% of the way done ... only 36 more blocks to go! LOL.
On a completely different note ... I went to a surprise baby shower this last weekend. I delivered her present finally & also the one I had mentioned last week. Nice to get the closet cleaned out a bit and deliver the gifts I had planned. :)


  1. Love all of your quilt tops. That would be tempting to only do the fun part of the quilt top!

    So glad that you delivered your homemade gifts as planned. Well done, Kira!

  2. I have a stack of tops in my closet too! For me, it's more that I'm scared to quilt them... I spent so long putting together the tops that I don't want to mess them up with my quilting! That, and I HATE basting. :P

    Your new project(s) looks like fun. It's important to support your friends. :)

  3. You get so much done!! I don't know how you do it!


I love comments! Thanks for sharing! :)
