remiss in posting

Things have been so crazy here that I haven't had a chance to post. Although on spring break,it seems like there hasn't been time. Probably because my MIL is visiting. Company has a way of taking up your time. I did manage to finish up all my swaps though. Now to just get them to the post office! This little number is off to Mari in Norway. Its for the Mini QUilt in a Bag Lovely Logs swap. She requested something springy....most of you know me and know this one is WAAAY outta my comfort zone! I think its pretty though,and hope she will like it. I wish you could see how nice and crinkly it got after washing and drying.

New Lap Quilt Squares

These are the squares I will be making for my next lap quilt....again (what else?)civil war prints. Using a black print for the center square,then a lighter fabric round,followed by a medium dark round. I really like the richness of these fabrics together as well as the simplicity of the block. It's all about the fabric after all!
