to read this post--
Cause I am telling you that that 'chick'--
Has made the brightest--sunniest--quilt I have ever seen--
are you ready--
cause that chick, Di is doing the happy dance now--
here is the newest quilt to come out of her sewing room--
Ta Da------
we warned you --that you would need those sun glasses--
talk about 'sunny and bright' this quilt has it!!!!!
This is the new pattern she just got in the mail--
by Loft Creations called--'String Beans'--
and the pattern is done to show 'green ones'--
but there is also yellow wax string beans--
and here is the proof--
Now this does need a border--
but--I had to order it--
I had nothing in my stash that was long enough for this one--
nor quite right--so thanks to punching some keys and looking at pages and pages of fabric--I do believe I have found one to make this quilt really 'cluck'!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was a pretty easy quilt to make and I really enjoyed seeing it take form--
and I was so happy to just take time and make up something that was fairly new for once--
instead of having the pattern sit around until I thought I had everything else caught up--
so take it from 'me'--somethings you have to turn a blind eye on all your other projects and break open a brand new pattern and just go for it!!!!!!!!!!!

we are into actual winter weather today and tonight--
so keep warm--cuddle with all your 'furry' ones!!

Di and her furry baby!!


  1. What a pretty, happy quilt! I love the white and yellow together. Can't wait to see what border fabric you chose! xo Jen

  2. Love that quilt!!! Gorgeous. And I thought we were cold!!!!

  3. Well done, Di! I love the yellow/white combo and also can't wait to see what fabric you chose for the back.

    I also finished my x-stitch project but have to wait for the final info to really finish it and frame it. :-)

    Now to start my dd's birth announcement. BTW, she found out today, we're having a grandDAUGHTER! :-)

    Stay warm you two!
