Vintage Sheet Quilt - Blues

I didn't mean to be away from my blog for so long, I just haven't had a lot to post about. No pretty pictures to share, and I wouldn't know how to post without something visual to distract from my crazy ramblings. But, I did finally manage to snap out of my lazy funk (for a bit) and pieced a new vintage sheet quilt using only my blue, green and purple inventory. So in honor of the winter blues, a blues quilt.


For the first time ever, I've decided to do something fancy with the back of one of my quilts. I think I'm liking it better than the front. Here's a wrinkly little peek...

Hope to have it quilted soon, but don't hold your breath. My kids are off track for 3 weeks (year round school). Ay Carumba!

*Also been doing more reading. Read Hunger Games & Catching Fire. Couldn't stop thinking about them, so I read a few others to get them off my brain, including one on the Readers Choice table at the library called
Jane Austen Ruined My Life. I wanted to like it, but in the end it was disappointing at best. Such a wimpy heroine - but then again, if I'm comparing characters to Katniss and Peeta, they all will seem like whiners. Next up... The Book Thief. If you have any suggestions, send them my way.

has a great blog that I depend on quite regularly. I'm also very tempted by the Jane austen wannabe's that she has on there.

Thoroughly enjoyed Hunger Games saga and waiting for august for the next one!

Love the quilt! Are you machine quilting it yourself? Can't wait to see it finished!

Loved the Hunger Games series. The third book comes out in August! I always have book recommendations--you know me--always reading.
