A special project for a special person

Sorry that it's been kinda quiet here at the Lilypad . . . there have been some things that have kept me from my quilting and from you special peeps. 

I will have some things to show you, though, very soon. As I catch a moment here and there, I pick up a portable project and work a little . . . have you done that, too?  It's a busy year already!

I've started a special quilt for a very special person --- my daughter! She zeroed in on a "swoon" quilt that she saw, and so I am raiding my stash and have more fabric on the way!  

I found this super tutorial over at "Double Nickel Quilts" and loved it. (Thanks, Candace!)  You might like to check it out, too. I've cut some squares to start (insert trumpet fanfare here) Block One!

I don't know why the pretty green Kona Bay fabric doesn't show up very well there (it's really not that olive-y), but I really like the three colors together.

I'll show off some progress as soon as I can!

  6. How fun for you to be making your daughter a quilt. And what a lucky girl! It's going to be gorgeous.
