Happy Easter from not so sunny Florida.

Enough said.

I spent some time over the past 2 weeks catching up on projects. These 2 houses are the March block for Quilt Doodles BOM.  My goal this year is to keep up.  This is part 2 of #4 of  Q1 - FAL  So far so good.

Next up was to start on my Hand2Hand2016 quilts.  I hope to finish 1 for each of this years 3 organizations by end of May. 

Routing through my many boxes of "quilt stuff" I stumbled across a zip lock bag containging these goodies.  After a lot of thought on the subject I remembered what and where this baggie came from. Several years ago I tripped over a pattern on Moda Bake shop called Lawn Chair Quilts. The pattern called for 2 Jelly Rolls, one in prints and one in white.  The end result was 2, 54 x 75 inch tops. One of my quilt buddies and I split a Jelly Roll and I cut my own white strips, I put my parts in a baggie and there they have sat for several years.

That is until this week. I now have my 2nd H2H 2016 top done.   It really was easy.  I did the bulk of it Friday Night and Saturday. Saturday while marathon watching NCIS.

Happy Easter, Happy Spring.


  1. Love the lawn chair quilt top. Usually when I run across something like that I have not idea what I had in mind.

  2. The lawn chair quilt pattern is adorable. How timely to find the baggie now. It makes a perfect H2H quilt.

  3. Fantastic quilts being made at your house! I like that lawn chair quilt too. I'm pretty sure I have it figured out...that really would be easy and work out pretty quickly. And it looks great. Love your colors.

  4. The irony of making a lawn chair quilt on a weekend when a lawn chair might not be usable is not lost on me. ;^) But it looks fresh and cheerful and will likely be well loved. Good for you for recalling what that fabric was for and making it happen!

  5. This is a cute pattern and how sweet that you found that bag.

  6. LOL!! You make me laugh. Not so sunny this Easter huh? Well indoor palm trees are the perfect solution! Great projects you've been keeping busy with. I love the jelly roll quilt.

  7. Too that palm tree! Nice find in that baggie. Beautiful Lawn Chair quilt!

  8. Weather was beautiful in OZ - lovely Easter. I love your Lawn Chair Quilt the colours are so fresh. Good find.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
