While the Hubs is Away...

The hubs is off to Spring Training with his dad and he took this little number with him...


So for the next four days I have the house all to myself. In fact, right after I dropped him off at the airport I pulled out my design wall and some projects that I want to attack this weekend so I could get a head start. The dining room is already a disaster!


Unfortunately I will be working all weekend too, so my sewing time will be somewhat limited but I'm planning to use any spare moment I can find to create. In fact, this morning I started putting the village quilt that the amazing ladies in the Hope Circle of the do. Good Stitches Bee helped me create. Initially I was planning to use all the blocks on the front but as I started laying it out I began to think that instead I would create a smaller, double sided quilt. One side would be the "big city" complete with town square in the middle and sashed in gray...

The other side would be the "enchanted forest" sashed in green...

What do you think?

Am I heading in the right direction or should I put them all on the front of the quilt and add some more blocks?


  1. It's really cute as a two-sided quilt - my only reservation would be, is it big enough to be functional? And that's easy enough to fix!

  2. OMG, I am in love with this quilt already!! What an awesome idea. And I like it just as you have it!
