better than i thought


yeah i like it a lot. so much that i think i'll put in the little one's room on display when it's not out in the living room for valentines day.

now if you'll excuse me my laundry has gotten the flu. that's the only reason i can see explaining why it has thrown up all over my bedroom. seriously clean laundry is harder to deal with than dirty laundry...ugh.

Oh, it's so beautiful. I love it. The colors are so good together. It would look really wonderful hanging on a wall- mine ;)

I wish I had the skill and detail to quilt! That is beautiful. So I am with you on the clean laundry! I am pretty sure it makes it upstairs but then never away. Oh well, we have better things to do right?

The colors are so lovely! nice. nice. nice.

About the laundry...
I have a clean side of the room and a dirty side. How sad.

Still working on a better system for training the folded towels to march into their own closet.

Wow, I love it. It seriously looks great. The colors all look so perfect. Great, now you have me wanting to make a valentines quilt! If you could just get that quilting friend of ours to move closer to me, that would help a ton! Yea, the laundry has thrown up in my room too, everynight I have to move if off the bed so there is somewhere to sleep. That's my goal today, get it folded already!

I absolutely LOVE that! You always make it look so easy - like the colors, seriously! Just pieces you've collected?? We need to get together and have a "cutting lesson." I always struggle with that - hard. And if I can't get it cut, that makes it dang near impossible to sew.... right?

Beautiful, beautiful!!!!

I love the quilt.

I hate laundry and it's never ending. As soon as you are finished there is more to do especially with little kids!

Your laundry flu made me chuckle.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Wow...how gorgeous. The colors are perfect and the textures too.

girlsmama said...

Beautiful! I love it. You could display it at my house when you're not displaying it for valentines...

I have three baskets of throw-up in my room. They've been sitting there for three weeks being rifled through daily for socks.

girlsmama said...

PS...did you see my email about Saturday?

The quilt is going to be beautiful. It already is, as it is.

Love it!!! You make me want to raid my stash and see what I can come up with :) Thanks for the inspiration!

summersandco said...

By the way...I just realized I'm going to have to clean up my laundry disaster to reach my stash...maybe I'll just continue to admire your quilt :)

Wow...you have such a knack for combining fabrics. LOVE it. cherry

Camille said...

Love it! Love the colors you used- could definitely pass for Valentines, but everyday as well. Way cute. Great laundry excuse, I might have to steal that one next time the husband gives the that look when we walks in our room and sees the bed with the PILE. You know the one I"m talking about. The one where you laundry hasn't been touched for a month? Just me? nevermind...

by the way, check a few posts down. I left you a novel. Serious.

Sharla said...

I love your color combination, especially the texture on the white. I'm going to have to mix some in on my next quilt! Thanks for the inspiration. I just recently found your blog from Camille and am loving it! You must be so excited for GI hubby to come home!!
