Maddie's blanket

I finally finished joining and edging this blanket for my niece who was born in March (just a tad late! I had a lot of schooling to finish!).  This was a great activity for listening to the UVA v. Boise State game.  The benefit of listening online? I could actually hear the band!

A new quilt top in brightly colored batiks

I started these squares before I started school last summer. The inspiration came from a video I found on pinterest. I actually wasn't very happy with them since I mixed up the warm and cool colors and I didn't think the color scheme worked well. I changed my mind as I worked with the blocks this year. I went ahead and sewed them into blocks, lined them up to best coordinate the colors, and added boarders.  This is a throw-ish size quilt top.  I really need to get brave and work on finishing some of these quilts (with backs, batting, and quilting).
