a quilt top

Yes, indeedy, I did finish that quilt top.

It's only a quilt top and a grainy picture, but that's all I've got today folks. I'm not feeling it much at the moment, but I do plan to quilt it tomorrow, so that may change things. And perhaps I'm just lagging from the demands of the day's merry-making.

Happy Birthday, Liam!

Today we celebrated Liam's 4th birthday with an ooey, gooey cake and quite the "blast" of a party. Feed little boys and girls chocolate cake and then run along outside to launch model rockets, and everyone's happy. Yes, sirree, it was fun.  {this mommy is exhausted}

yum.

Good thing there's one little piece of cake left...

  1. I love your quilt! I especially love the little bit of green patchwork off to the side. Very cool! The greens and browns works so well together. Very earthy.

  11. it looks fab rachel! Better than I expected after your worries. The little fun bit in the border helps a lot because it tells us that this was all very deliberate choice. Trust us...it is worthy of you and you'll look back later and see what we see.

  14. Hey! I just started reading this blog today, and I have to say, I LOVE seeing the Sixth Time's a Charm quilt in progress. I'm not a quilter by nature, but I love the quilted look. I just got Handmade Beginnings for Christmas, and that beautiful quilt makes me want to take the dive! Thanks for your post on reducing scraps (though the pillow is on my list for my daughter's "big girl" room.) Anyway, love the blog. Love the colors. Love the inspiration. :)

  16. oooh, the cake recipe is from the Williams Sonoma baking cookbook. It was gifted to us years ago and I love to cook from it! Basic concept is a choco cake with chocolate whipped cream topping/filling and chopped strawberries. But, guess what, my husband ate that last piece up before I could get to it. DARN.
