A New Quilt!!

Hello, Everyone!

I'm so sorry that I don't post very often............ I promise I have good intentions!!!  I post one post and think to myself "I'm on a roll!!"    LOL!!

Well, I do have good news!  We have had our house on the market for 2 1/2 weeks and according to our realtor, we should be receiving an offer by the end of the week or by next Monday.  This family has looked at the house twice and are pretty excited!  YAY    Not too shabby for a town of only 8,000 or so people!

And our offer was accepted on another house.  Things seem to be falling in place!  sshhhh!!  I don't want to jinx it!

The new house is like a blank canvas and I just can't wait to start in with the ideas I have swimming in my head!  And I'm going (to try really hard) to post about my projects!!  I can't wait!

In the mean time, tho, I'm trying really hard to not get any big involved project going here at the house. But - - I've been itching to do SOMETHING!!  So, Sunday I decided to make a quilt!!  And I got the top finished tonight!!  I would have had it all sandwiched together, but........  I just didn't have enough fabric to make the backing that I wanted...... So I need to go to Hobby Lobby, which is about 30 minutes away.

I've had this gray and lemon fabric for 2 - 3 years.  I just didn't get into a hurry to figure out exactly what I wanted to do with it - what kind of quilt I wanted to make.

Then Sunday, I was wandering through Pinterest.........  (imagine that - right??) and I came across this quilt.  Lindsey over at Inspiring Creations designed it.  Click Here to go see her 4-Patch Slice pattern.  It was soo EASY and it went together quickly!!  And hey -- I pretty much had all the fabric for it!

She made her's with 20 blocks and I only used 16 blocks.  Counting the 2 borders, my quilt is 55 inches square.  That's a nice cozy size!!

Mr. Inspiring got me a Nikon D3200 DSLR camera and I'm taking a photography class.  So, hopefully, when I have the quilt done, I'll manage to take some pretty - hopefully outside - - pictures!!

Thanks for visiting and thanks for tolerating my sporadic posts......  HOPEFULLY I'll pick it up a bit!

Happy Spring!
