It takes a baby….

…to make sure those things that have been hovering on your to-do list for over 6 months ACTUALLY get accomplished and become crossed off the list! :) I am learning this……slowly, but surly! :)

As embarrassing as it is, I have had the quilt top to this quilt (Amy Butler’s Sexy Hexy pattern) done for maybe over a year now. I fell in love with the pattern, bought the fabric, quickly cut it out and even more quickly sewed the top together (it was quite an easy and quick sew I must say). And then I smile because it looked great! Well….there is sat, draped over the rocking chair in my sewing room for a LONG LONG LONG time. As we’ve been packing, purging and getting ready for baby Steffen to arrive (in a mere 6 weeks…BAH!…time is whizzing by) I made a GIANT to-do list of things I wanted to get accomplished before this little one arrives and steals all of my precious creative time away for a few months. And this project was one of them!

So, now…I can proudly watch some movies and work on my next project with this lovely and warm quilt cuddled in my lap! Doesn’t every home need about 10 of these throw quilts just to make life more colorful?!?!? :) I sure think so! :)
