Dilly Dally Around Here

Posted on March 17, 2015 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

I have been working on this quilt for far too long; not because it was difficult, not because I didn't like it but just because something else would always jump in line ahead of it.

Well I'm happy to report I finally got it done, and I absolutely love how it turned out!

The pattern is Dilly Dally by Thimble Blossoms, fabric is Honey Honey by Kate Spain.

I chose roses as the quilting pattern, I had just enough left over scraps from the border to work it in the backing.  The quilted roses show up so well on that beautiful solid fabric on the back.

This block is one of my favorites, something about the navy background with all those pretty flowers.

My next favorite, check out this tiny bee!  These little bee's are scattered around the binding, just adorable!

I am now officially ready for spring to come, maybe if I lay this quilt out spring will come sooner??

The Love for Spring

Posted on December 29, 2012 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year!  I had an enjoyable Christmas; we stayed home all day, had a home cooked dinner and even squeezed in some movie watching.  Stuff that most people probably take for granted, but I throughly enjoyed it.   Spent the whole day with my wonderful husband, mom and dog (which I think our dog probably didn't appreciate it as much since we interrupted her whole day of napping ritual she has going on).
I do love spring, and since that is far far away I decided to start sewing a store sample with Honey Honey by the wonderful Kate Spain.  It is lovely, the fresh bright colors really made it fun to sew with! 
I can only show you a little sneak peak since I'm not finished yet.  I used a dessert roll, it's (20) 5" x WOF.  We will be getting all those fabrics that are featured in the Honey Honey dessert roll.  
I was able to squeeze three quilts from one dessert roll!  If you know anything about me, it's that I can't stand to not use all my fabric!  I love using all those scraps!  The one with the pinwheels will be a fairly large size, the other two quilts are great baby sizes. 
Now I just have to wait for all that beautiful yardage to come in so I can put borders on and get them quilted!  Patiently waiting...
