The Spring Chicken Sampler – First Quilt Top Finish

Drum roll, please! I finally finished the top to the Spring Chicken Sampler! After all the blocks I added 3 in. sashing. The total measurement is approx. 40 x 33 which happily falls into baby blanket size. I don’t have any plans as to where this blanket will go to live. It seems odd to me to give it as a gift since it’s got both blue and pink in it, so maybe I’ll pack it away for a hope chest item for me. No matter where it finally goes to stay, I call it a win! 🙂

Without further ado, here it is in all its glory (or as much glory as I could muster for it, if you’ll please ignore the bad picture quality…).

Blocks:

Row 1: Dutchman’s Puzzle and King’s Crown

Row 2: Nine Patch on point

Row 3: Rosebud Block and Sarah’s Choice

Busy busy!

For the last few weeks, I’ve been so busy that I’ve been sadly neglecting my blog. However, in my defence, I’ve not been neglecting my crafting! I’ve been a busy bee or beaver or whatever animal is relevant.

First, I got the top to the Spring Chicken Sampler done. First finish for a pieced quilt top! So. Excited. Then, I started another quilt top, of course. I also at some point in there made an anniversary card, learned a new crochet stitch, and baked some unusual (to me) chocolate cupcakes.

For the moment, I’ll leave you with a picture of some lilies that Nathan bought me, just because. (I know, *sigh* :D) More updates to come soon on all my busy-ness!
