{ H } is for heather

i had the best time last night playing with my crafty girls! so much so... that i woke up this morning crazy inspired and thought... i should make a quilt today! so i did!! haha... and just for kicks... i made it for me ;) i lOVE how it turned out!! i wanted a punch of color on the back to really make it pop ( hence the lime )... but the best idea was using lime thread to quilt it! this quilt will be a summer favorite for years to come!

then my sweet friend Laurie Wisbrun of ( Scarlet Fig ) sent me her newest collaboration with mr. Robert Kaufman... Urban Circus!! and you know... she sent enough one you too right!! this girl always hooks us up!! she's currently celebrating her 2 year blog-a-versary witha a little up coming surprise give-a-way on her blog right now... so swing by and say hi!!

Have a great weekend peeps!! XO, Heather

  6. What the what? You are insane! How did you make a quilt and post when I still haven't finished writing my post for PMQG or even started one for my own blog?!?!?

    When Violet took me back to OSF last night to get my car, the parking lot was closed. As in BLOCKED OFF!
    My car was parked on the side and there was an open exit. Tiny moment of panic :)
