Throwing myself into quilting

I spent a wonderful afternoon, opening and closing the back door for Chloe the Smelly Basset, Dutch and Cali the Cat.  I cooked Emeril Lagasse's Gumbo and now I am off to make the rice. 

In between I whipped up this little gem from Scraps of the Lemon Lime quilt I am handquilting and lives on the back of the sofa these days.  It looks all bright and cheery, like Carrie's house.  She has a thing for lemons and limes and even had them at her wedding instead of flowers down the aisle.  I had purchased 20 fat quarters and made a huge quilt, and had a lot left over.  I still have some large pieces left over that might just become a tea cozy or something.

It is going into the Gift Box for future use.  It still needs the binding sewn down but I can do that tonight after Toastmasters.


  1. Wow, what a bright item! And it matches your teapot. Glad you found time for some quilting between your dayjob of Animal Doorman.

  2. I love this! Such beautiful brightness!

  3. Whoo hoo!!! I love this - the bright cheerful colors are fantastic. I can hardly wait to see the big quilt. This makes me want to go out and look at lemon and lime colors in the LQS - not buy just stand and look. They are happy colors.

    Hugs - Marie
