a new(ly finished) quilt

So, I have actually had the fabric pieces for this quilt for a long, long time, but I finally got them pieced together into this quilt. It is a gift for a special baby who will be making his arrival next week. It's so satisfying to finish a quilt, now I'm wanting to try one of these... such a fun pattern!

In other crafty news, I took an embroidered button class at Home Ec with Wendy and I think I'm addicted (thanks alot Codi! LOL). I'm making a sweet little Rudolf button that will become part of Lachlan's Christmas stocking.

And of course, my head is swirling with handmade Christmas gifts. We'll see how much time I end up having for all that. I will definitely be making use of this awesome tutorial list, though!


  1. I love the bright colors!! Good luck on the tumbling blocks ;)

  2. I love the quilt. You guys are really tempting me to tune up the old singer!!
    Would love to see a pic of the buttons. trying to imagine what they'd look like.

  3. This quilt is stunning! Great job!! I wish I had your talent!
