Just dropping in . . .

and the quilt top is complete!

This was a tutorial over at the Moda Bake Shop by Rachel Griffith and something about it just begged me to make it.  Mine is quite a bit bigger than the featured quilt – I used 12 fat quarters cut into 5” squares, so I think when all is said and done it should measure around 68”x68” – a nice size snuggle quilt.  When I was looking for a quick, easy project to work on last Saturday (something that didn’t require too much thought!), this is what I pulled out of the stack.  I like it . . . the white sets off the deeper, country colors.

This quilt, when completed, is a planned Christmas present for someone – I now have three months to finish it – three months exactly now that I look at the calendar.  Are you ready for Christmas?

You also need to pop over to Paulette's to enter her really cool giveaway – I love that pattern and the fabrics look delicious!

Well I’m off to the big City this weekend – Keith Urban is calling my name – we’ll see how that goes!

Have a great weekend everyone.

‘til next time,

M.
