It has been a challenge to find time when my son isn't home to work on his surprise quilt. This is how far I am now. This top is fun and different for me. It has been like putting together a puzzle. Boy would it be easier to be able to just leave it out to work on now and then but NO...I'm constantly picking it up and stashing it away from him! This quilt is called, "Touch of Vegas" designed by Debbie Allan. Debbie is mailing me a copy of the pattern to giveaway on my blog soon.
Since my son was home yesterday I couldn't work on his quilt but was itching to do something productive. I had been keeping a bunch of leftover sewn triangles from the quilts I made for Kim Brackett's book, "Scrap Basket Sensations." I pulled them out and squared them up to 1.5" half-square triangles. Then I started piecing some fun little things.
Here is a fun little gift item that you can whip up quickly for Christmas using leftovers and a 6" frame from Hobby Lobby.
