To everyone who is visiting from the selvage blog welcome. It was exciting to wake up this morning ready to blog about everything I got done last night and see, that so many people had come to visit.

Last night felt like an early Mother's Day present. My DH took the girls out as soon as he got home from work to go shopping for a present for me. They chose to go to a Grand Ave in Escondido and stayed for all the fun of Friday night with "Cruisin' Grand" where tons of people come out to show off and see antique cars. I had 3 1/2 peaceful hours to sew! First, I finished the tulip hearts quilt. And I hate to admit it, but I really don't think I like it. The picture is blurry I know, but even in person, it doesn't help the layout. But, with some quick stippling it will be done and make a nice gift to someone. Most of the fun was in the challenge. The petals on the flowers are prairie points, and the leaves are pockets. I really just wanted to learn how to make it.

But I also finished my barn block/mini quilt. I love this one! I found the pattern on a trip to Canada last summer, while and the best quilt store in Canmore. Trust me if the exchange rate had been better I would have had to buy and extra suitcase to go home. I used left over pieces of fabric from "Sunday Brunch at Lake Louise" that already had fusible on the back of them. It looks perfect on the little frame.
Have a great weekend, and happy Mother's Day to all the moms.
