Back to MN

This one is not quite done... trying to decide a border... hmmm, I'm thinking triangles, or maybe a wide brown border.... or gold... or, geez I don't know... It needs something SPICY!!!
It will have to wait til I'm back from MN.

Jennifer Ramos of madebygirl... made this print. I must have one.
Perhaps a gift for my hubby just to reinforce my love... ;-)

Maybe I can make one that says, I LOVE YOU, BLOGS, QUILTING, and Coffee!

Our ten year anniversary is just around the corner!

Me, B and my vintage fishy plates are off to Minnesota, back to the cabin Saturday...
I will be seeing some friends, family and a couple BLOG friends!!! Can't wait!
I'll be hitting a few of my favorite quilt shops... That's always fun!
Gonna try to keep blogging, ....I found the local coffee shop has WIFI... yippeee!

  1. I think gold and brown triangles, bigger than what you have there. Your quilt looks really lovely! Have a fabulous time in those shops!!

  2. I really love the quilt! Have a great time!

  3. I soooo love the colors of the quilt. Good luck on figuring it out. Once I become better at it I will make recommendations, for now I will enjoy whatever you do.
    Happy tenth.....when is the date again? Ours is 7 months away :)
    I want that Blog sign but with your additions on it. Maybe we can Quilt it!!!

  4. Ooohhh I like your new quilt top. You are getting LOTS done this summer. I'm kinda jealous because I don't seem to be accomplishing anything (besides inhaling bags of Nibs).

    I love that sign, too. But I think I would have to add a few things to it, too.

    Have a great time in MN. "See" you when you get back!

  5. Great quilt top! Have fun visiting those wonderful shops.

  6. I love love love this quilt!

    Have a safe journey and say hi to any of our mutual blog friends for me - lucky duck!

  7. Luv that top. I can't wait to see what else you do to it. Looks like that sign woul be a great anniversary present. Have a great visit.

  8. Fly safe ladies, and have fun!

  9. Love the new quilt! Have fun at the cabin.

  10. Have a great time up at the cabin. I love that Dh and I just celebrated out 10th this year too! Heading to Boston next month to celebrate with a game at Fenway...

  11. Oooooh, I really like this new quilt. You are really getting a lot done!! Have a great time at the cabin.

  12. The quilt would be so cute with triangles around the border. Also cute would be the triangles that are little "flaps" you know what I mean? The kind you create into finished triangles and then sew into the seam over your border...? I immediatly thought of that when I saw the quilt. :)

  13. I agree, it definitely needs something spicy!

    Hey, i'm having a contest/giveaway today for designer fabric lovers! If you get a chance, come enter!

  14. This is an awsome quilt! Definately triangles similar to those in the sashing! Bold striking and sassy! Good luck with it. As to the sign, hehe, I think I have that exact mug in the pic! Happy shopping :o)

  15. i'm soooooooo excited to meet you! have fun at grubers. (and the other quilt shops, of course.) too bad we couldn't meet THERE~although that would be highly dangerous. :)

  16. i forgot to add....i LOVE that poster, but it definitely needs quilting in the list. and the quilt is fantastic. i love it so!

  17. I'm surprised I'm drawn to that quilt, it isn't my usual colours. But I think it is loverly. My vote is for triangles on the borders too.


Hi! Thanks for leaving me a comment!
I appreciate your taking the time to say hi!
Have a fabulous day!
