TA DA ! ! !

The pieces that I cut out on Thursday are now a quilt!

The pattern is Hanky Panky (by Darlene Zimmerman & Rachel Shelburne).  It is small – crib size – 42 X 42.  The fabric is from a free kit I got years ago and never made the quilt.  This was an easy quilt and used 9 fat quarters, plus the background and small inner border. 

I also made the backing and binding so that some day when I decide to quilt it, I’m all ready.

While the laundry finished up this afternoon, I took a break from cutting out another quilt and did some hand work on my hexagon project.

Finally, tonight, I spent an hour watching TV and doing a little more stitching on my Quaker piece.

It has been a good day for me.  What about you?

Ok, I'm really getting an inferiority complex. Every single day you don your "super" cape and create!! You are amazing!

Love the quilt! I love plaids and checked fabric in quilts.

Wow!
I need to find new ways to say, "You are amazing!" so I don't sound like a broken record. But you really are!

I'm really enjoying watching the cross stitch progress. Beautiful!
