you can tell it's summer.

when it's summer, i'm barely around! with my boys being home, family get-a-ways, lazy reading days, and crazy tedious quilt projects... i can only shamelessly admit, blogging is the last thing on my mind. ;P

my only real goal is to visit all the blogs left on my comments in the other post and start a new blog roll... other than that, this is it kids! hahaha... random, silly, pop in's! don't worry though, i'll certainly post after i get my new tattoo on next Monday ( i know you were super worried!! ) Especially since it's based off one of my favorite fabric designers ( wink, wink )!

and ps... this quilt is taking for-freaking-EVER! LOL

X, Heather

  1. I think everything takes twice as long in the summer. The quilt top looks like it will be worth it though. I love the block and color combos.

  2. It might be taking forever - but that's surely OK in summer? You must be pleased with the effect so far though? The effect of the light and dark shades in the fabrics you've chosen is awesome! It makes me want to have a go myself!

  3. oooh, I really love those quilt blocks! I think I need to make a design wall somewhere in my house like yours. Looks like it's so helpful to see what you're working with!

  4. Aww, I've missed your posts, but I'm glad to know I'm in good company. I haven't blogged in a couple weeks, and I have to admit, I have very little guilt about it! Enjoy your summer!

  7. Enjoy those boys!! I have 3 and they grew up WWAAAYYY too fast. Although, I do have misty memories, way, way in the back of my mind, of days when I wished they were grown and gone! hehehe But, that goes with raising boys! It is a blast when they are grown, too!!!

  9. It may be taking forever but it sure is cool looking!

    If you want to get more done just move here to Texas where it's so hot all you want to do is stay inside where the air conditioning is....hahaha.

  12. Awesome choice of fabrics. I love that the patern doesn't "fade away". Can you tell me what the name of the pattern is and maybe where I can get it?

  13. I'm seeing that pattern all over! I love it! I am thinking of making that one for my son. I too am working on a quilt project that is taking FORRRRR-EEEEVVVV-EEERRRR!!!!

  15. It is impressive. I cant decide if I'm committed enough to try it!

  16. It'll be so worth it, though. Sometimes those forever projects get so much more wrapped up in them while life happens during your sewing-it-together time.

    Good luck with your tattoo!!!

  26. It may take forever, but I love that quilt. Someday it will be finished!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Now you understand why I was trying to get my quilt out of Bee Traditional. I realized quickly that it wasn't hard, but the quilt pattern would need a lot of blocks. I haven't made progress on mine.

  28. Enjoy every moment of summer with your boys! It'll just fly by....

  32. Love the colors you are using for the quilt. I think that once summer hits, relaxing and enjoying family usually takes front row to everything else. :)

  36. I'm doing one of these quilts too but I went totally scrappy with no color scheme - yours is looking so much prettier than mine ever will. I may try it again someday and narrow my color choices. Have a great summer!
