Quilt Chick....Quilts!!!

So it is Friday night at 9pm and I am in bed! Blonde rascal is asleep next to me with freshly bathed Missy between us. Hubs is roping tonight and will be back tomorrow. Blogging in bed, with HGTV on...what more could I ask for?!?!?

I ordered this cute car cake pan from Williams Sonoma after Christmas. Blonde rascal loves cars and well, it was on clearance!

We tested it out tonight and mine didn't turn out as well as the ones in the picture.... how odd!

Who cares though because we had some fun decorating them!

I was afraid I might have to change my blog title to something like Chatty Chick unless I got to quilting. So I am jumping right in! Tuesday was Thimbleberries Club and here is the quilt we will be making this year...

It is ummmm... big! And that is very daunting to this newbie, but what better way to learn!

Weds. was $1 Block a month and here is the quilt we are making...

It is beauty for sure but lordamercy it won't exactly be easy either!!! The blocks don't scare me too much but that applique center is frightening!!!! I am going to start working on the block for this month and to make it easier I bought some cool triangle maker software. I'll show you soon!

I am so relaxed and feeling rather brain dead at the moment so I am signing off to leisurely stroll though some blogs!
