I saw your awesome baby quilt at Moda Bake Shop and commented how cute it is. Have a great weekend.

Amy said...

Well FINALLY Vanessa!!! My quilt top has been done for like 5 weeks, and I've been waiting for you to cater to me with the rest of the directions.
Now how do I get to Felicia's house???

Super cute...now all I need is a girl! Have fun this weekend...and now hate involved just an unhealthy amount of envy!

AmyLynn said...

Well you enjoy yourself. I know that taking care of the family while your dear hubby takes care of the country is a hard job so go enjoy it! You've earned it!

I have only been to Snowbird's spa once and I ADORED it! Lucky you! Have a terrific weekend!

girlsmama said...

Sounds divine! I'm sure your bro and SIL will have a lovely weekend with the kiddos. Do they have kids yet?

Laurie said...

so lovely. I did your stacked coin quilt for my daughter and it is so cute in her room.
cant wait to try this one

Felicia said...

HA! Amy, to get to my house you simply drive out to the middle of nowhere, go another 30 miles, and then turn right at the tree. Mine is the house with half an antler on the front steps...it's a gift from our dog.

Or, you can email me at quiltingbee at scinternet dot net and I'll give you a mailing address :o)

Aimee said...

It's beautiful! congrats on being featured again!

Christine said...

If you consider yourself a beginning quilter, you must be a pretty darn good one to have tutorials on Moda Bake Shop. Congratulations!

Love the quilt! Think it's a project that a beginner like me can do?

And my condolences on the spa trip. That really stinks. =)

Sinta Renee said...

Another success! That is a sweet quilt that looks like it could be THE project for the weekend (plus)! Have fun with your weekend away!

You rock Vanessa and this baby quilt is beautiful!

Really cute quilt - someday when I have "time" I'd like to make it. I love the backing fabric you chose. What is it? Your triangle pinwheel quilt turned out cute too - so cheery. I like the thin pieced strip around the border too.

RachelJane said...

Oooh! I like, I like. I'm going to try to adapt this to a jelly roll, since I don't have a honey bun.
Have fun at the spa. Try not to wear yourself out now!

Mel said...

Yeah! I love your tutes! Thanks!!

Adorable little quilt! Your quilter did a great job too!

DebV said...

I just found your blog and after breezing through a few of your old posts, I immediately registered. Now I see that you are an Army wife? I am too, an old Army wife. We are stationed in NY.
LOVE this baby quilt!

Vanessa I had no idea you had such a great blog!! How fun that you and Camille got together in Vegas. Have you known each other long? Too fun! Great quilt on the Bakeshop! Way to go. :) Holly from Pine Needles

Camille said...

Oooh, I love it! Looks so soft and vintagy. It is on its way to my house right? ;-)

This is so cute! I have a couple of gift cards to different places and I think I may just buy a jelly roll to make one of these! I've never worked with the pre-cuts before. I think I would like it.
