I laid this out to begin piecing it over Thanksgiving and my sweetie loved it. It was going to go to a new home for Christmas, but I quickly realized that would not be happening. I am too much of a newbie and time is too short to do it justice. Plus, he loved the watercolor effect of the Lantern Bloom and asked me to keep this at our house. :) I gladly agree!

Also finished piecing the new little man's quilt. Mom and Dad requested a quilt larger than a baby quilt. I sewed it on my mom-in-law's old Viking and I think my sea allowance was smaller than 1/4", because this quilt turned out larger than the others I have made with this pattern. :) I asked my quilter to make the pattern for the quilting denser. I can't wait to get it back! I love Amy Schimler's Animal Party!


  1. Vick, Deacon's quilt turn out really cute!Something he will cherish for years to come.

  2. The quilt is gorgeous and I would not have been able to give away the other quilt. You do such beautiful work.


Oh, goodie. I love to hear from you!
