Well, life keeps chugging along, whether I blog or not! I can't believe how long it's been since I made a post!!  I don't want to make excuses, or blather on about all the reasons I haven't been blogging. Suffice it to say that life kept me busy these last 9 months.  A lot of GOOD times, some rough times, a new found love of a sport that my son played last spring, helping at Calli's school regularly, trying to keep my house in order when I was home, and lastly... squeezing in some sewing when I didn't have other commitments!
So instead of chatting... here is the most recent quilt - just pulled it out of the dryer yesterday! And I love it!! I'm keeping it! LOL
String quilt... completely made from my scrap basket. Paper pieced on telephone book papers... i forget how many blocks... i think 120? 

LOL... my little creeper!  :)   Well.. he's not so little anymore! And he's an awesome helper when I ask if he'll hold a quilt for me :D  

The backing was yardage I found at ikea a year or so ago.  The sides are orange metro living circles, and the top and bottom is bound in the same orange circles, and the sides are bound in purple tufted tweets. It really sets it off nicely :)
Maybe I'll be back tomorrow to show you another one :)  Hope you have a great day - and you didn't fall off your chair from absolute shock that i posted! LOL

Miss hearing from you Bren - but alas, I understand completely how life gets in the way of blogging! Love your quilt and love that you only used scraps! So fun!
