Summer Bling Quilt!!

beautiful pink diamonds... does it get any girlier??? i think not! haha... i had been itchin to try a { half square triangle } quilt for sometime and last week... i finally got my chance! i played with a couple different designs... but after some thought and comments from friends on Flickr... i went with an off centered diamond ;) Katie has an amazing Flickr group that has severe HST eye candy and after i scanned their photo pool... this one gave me a lot of inspiration!

since my clever oldest was holding up my quilt top for me... he thought i'd be super funny to take a quick photo of me... not looking to pleased! haha... what a stinkerbutt!!

now back to my { me + you } quilt with my dear friend Joan!!

The Swiss Army Quilt!!

Here's too having a fantastic weekend!!

XO, Heather

  3. What are you on, friend? Every time I turn around you have made something even more fabulous (not to mention coordinating so many flikr groups/swaps)! Do you ever sleep?

    I was wondering how your me + you quilt was going -- it's so pretty. A photo of my AB cross quilt in progress made Explore, and all I could think was -- they should see what Heather is doing! I love you fabrics/colors. I need to get back to mine, too. Now that Molly is home from Multnomah for the summer she is giving her opinion about fabrics for her cross quilt and choosing fabrics for a tote. She may not be a quilter (yet), but the love of fabrics in definitely in her blood. She was googling and admiring fabrics last night and kept calling to me in the other room, "Okay, name another designer!" Soooooooo fun!
