I am submitting this quilt into the "Throw Category" because when I originally made it in December this is what I said about it!


"Well last week I was working on a throw quilt for my new granddaughter to be born in January. I finished the top on Monday! I call it a throw quilt because I want it thrown on the floor/ground before the baby is put down on the floor or in the grass outside. Put it on the couch before you put the baby on it. A quilt you can take in the car and wash it when you get home. A barrier between the baby and the world. A baby wrapped in love! Yes, it is a little sappy!"

Modern Scrappy Bits Swap

This is why I love participating in Flickr Swap Groups. I received a package in the mail the other day from the secret partner who got my name this round. There are thousands of swap groups going on at the Flickr site always needing people to join. Modern Scrappy Bits is in round 2 and I am hoping there will be a round 3! Danielle was responsible for sending me one fat quarter of scraps and a handmade item of her choice and she made me this beautiful mini quilt. So happy with her handmade, she is very talented. Thank you so much Danielle! This is the backing fabric! Sorry, don't know the name of it but it is really pretty! Modern scraps - oh how I love all these little pieces! Danielle sent me a wide range of scraps and definitely more than a fat quarter! Yippee fun! I like this so much because some I may not have ever boughten for myself but once I see them, I love them.

Hawthorne Threads Pre-cut Sale

Hi Everyone, I hope your all doing well. I have been busy shopping at Hawthorne Threads They have the latest and greatest fabric, a blog, a weekly giveaway, and terrific sales! I got everything you see here for less than $50.00. Enough to keep me busy for a little while. So, next time you are looking for a great deal head over there and look in the pre-cut sale section and clearance section. Oh, this is just my opinion, nobody sponsors me. I just like beautiful designer fabric and don't have a lot of money. I look for good bargains where I can find them and I consistently find them at Hawthorne Threads. Thought I would pass this along to my friends out in blogland. Have a good week! Later I will show you my progress on Miss Sophie's quilt. Later Lisa
