New Kitchen and a Q1 Finish

Not totally new, but getting there.  We changed the paint color over the summer and recently opened up the kitchen to the dining room.

I made the table runner to tie the two rooms together.

My love of Bonnie and Camille may have been the influencing factor for my color choice.

First Finish of Q1

A college friend and her husband are having a baby boy in March and are die hard WVU fans.  The baby's quilt is finished.  I will add a tag after his arrival with his birth stats.

One down, lots to go!

2016 Finish Along- Q1 List

Rhonda's [Quilt] Ramblings
Writing things down helps me to stay focused and complete those items.  For me there is nothing more satisfying than crossing something off a to-do-list.  Here is my 2016 Q1 To Do List
1) Piece the top to my 2010 (yes 2010!) Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block of the Month. It is lovely fabric from Kate Spain (12 Days of Christmas)
2) Piece a second 2010 Mystery BOM quilt.  I made enough blocks for 2 quilts that have been sitting around for 6 years.
3) Make a baby quilt for my nephew who is expected in February 2016.
4) Make a baby top with my finished blocks from my 2013 Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block of the Month, I actually kept up with these blocks but never finished the top.
6) I have 4 flimsies with their backs hanging in my closet, I would like to get these 4 basted and quilted.  They will then be donated. I am linking up with Elven Garden.

Mini for one of my minis

I'm a little late to the Spell it With Moda party.  Here is my first letter mini for my youngest.  She's obsessed with pink and orange so Me and My Sister Designs fabric was perfect for her.
I needed a quick and easy project and this was so fun and easy.  I made a K yesterday for my other mini.  Hers is a lovely mix of pinks from Me and My Sisters Designs as well.  Sewing the binding down tonight.

Knitted Afghan

I made a baby blanket for the Lullaby League donation at Christmas which is hosted by my daughters' school.
