Family visiting starts this week so that mean's summer is officially here and the house will be full in a few days! I am so excited! Thought this would be the perfect time to show you my finished "Full House" quilt, a Schnibbles pattern by Carrie Nelson.
I used a couple of charm packs of Grand Finale by Sandy Gervais and some coordinating fabrics for the border, binding, and backing.
I love my little house! My little treasure was machine quilted by Lynda from her shop Fiddlestitches located in Mabou, a scenic 40-minute drive up the road along the coast of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. She custom quilted this and stitched a few perfectly spaced flowers to make my quilt even more fun! Thank you, Lynda, it's perfect! Can you folks see the little flower?
It was a wonderful day at the post office yesterday. Just look what I received...my very first quilted postcard sent to me by my friend and fellow blogger Sheila from Sheila's Quilt World. Sheila lives a little more than an hour away and we've met on a couple of occasions in "real life".
It is a fabulous piece of art and I feel soooo special to be on the receiving end. Thank you, Sheila, it is precious. It intrigues me that our post offices will mail these little babies. Have a look...it even has a stamp on it!
Registration for Think Christmas blog hop from July 30-August 3 is now closed. We've received over 50 registrations so everyone around the globe is already in Christmas spirit!
I'll be putting together the schedule and will send it out in a few days. Do you have your thinking, I mean, Santa cap on?
And our creator of super blog hops Madame Samm continues to come up with ideas! Just this morning she posted a new blog hop...Bowls With Borders. How cute is this button? Have a peek at her bowl project...so cool!
To sign up for Bowls with Borders,visit Carol at Just Let Me Quilt.
So that's it for today. Off to sit in my quilting chair, sip my coffee, and watch a chick flick. Life is good, and it's a great day for quilting!
