The Shop Hop Quilt is Done!

This is the week that we are usually scrambling, to to get everything ready for the Fall Shop Hop.
This year is no different.... Lots to do and time is running out! At least the Shop Hop quilt is DONE! I pulled an all nighter to finish it, in time for Jane of Jane's in Stitches to quilt it for me this morning.... The binding is on and ready to be stitched down by hand. (My project while I watch TV tomorrow night...the season premier of Dexer is on and I have to find out what happened!) Now, I just have to write the pattern and come up with our "give away" project. Good thing I work well under pressure! Lol

Here is a sneak peak! I had lots of fun working with the Moda collection, "Makin New Friends" by Deb Strain. There is an adorable panel that is incorporated into this pattern. It is really easy to piece with a little applique and paper piecing thrown in.... Again, it is easy and would be great for a beginner. We will have kits available at Shop Hop which runs this Thursday Sept 30 to Saturday Oct 2, 2010. Make sure that you stop by Kindred Spirits Quilt Co. We have lots of new things and we've been cutting all kinds of kits for a couple of weeks!

I have had some help getting everything done! Kadie is such a good companion and she is all grown up. She encourages me all the way! And I couldn't get better support... She's always right beside me. There is nothing better than a Golden.... She really is my best friend! :-) Life is good!
