It’s a Knockout!!

Oh man…I am late this morning!  I made the mistake of going over to Gail Pan’s Blog first thing this morning and found myself at Pat Wys’ Neutral Blog Hop…

Pat has a new book out called… “Knockout Neutrals”!  PERFECT name for this book as every quilt is a knockout!  Her first book, ‘Spotlight on Neutrals’ was great…and I still have several quilts in there earmarked to do!!  Designers shouldn’t do that to us…come out with new designs and books BEFORE we’ve had a chance to make the old designs!!  Wait until YOU see this NEW book…you will see exactly what I am talking about…I love the basket quilt, the honey bee runner, the cover quilt and love the pillow!  Yup…she had me at HELLO!  Hope you take a few minutes to check it out…it’s a winner!  (Go HERE!)

SEW…I have another finish!!  That’s TWO in one week…now THAT’s NEVER happened before…and probably will never happen again!!  Funny how having a ‘due date’ propels you into motion!

This quilt is going to be a gift for the bride to be…her wedding shower is this Saturday!!  So you see…I have time to spare…ooops still need a label!  Ok…it’ll get done!

It’s a big one…Queen size!  I would definitely make another as I love the scrappiness of it!  Even the binding is scrappy and TOTTALLY made from my stash!  Got to love that!

Well it’s another VERY wet day on our little island!  A PERFECT sewing day!!  Yippee!!

Hope you have time to sew today too!  Happy stitching!~P

  2. Love this quilt, what a great shower gift. Was it hard to make?
    It's getting brighter here by the minute, so maybe we'll see some sun today after all.

  3. How fun to finish two in one week! I only do that when I've procrastinated on the bindings.:) Great quilt--I'm sure it will be a big hit.:)

  4. Good job! Have we ever seen you get such a huge project done so quickly? And it's a give away too. You are so generous.

  11. Hi SP. I absolutely LOVE the quilt you just finished. I guess it almost fits into the "neutrals" category too.
