Come see what this Dad and his Princess have been up to.
You might get to see some of my sewing projects, as well as a tutorial here and there to help you out.
I might even work up to a few give aways along the way!
Hold on tight! This could be a bumpy ride!

All sewn up!

This quilt decided that it liked the stone sashing after all.

I really liked the yellow.... Leighanna liked the pink....Mom liked white.  
My original plan was to use the stone sashing, so I went with my gut feeling and I am so glad that I did.
The blocks really are the show. 
All that hard work piecing...some seam ripping...scrapping blocks that didn't quite turn out.
I really love it!

Leighanna was very involved in this whole process.  She helped me pick out the fabrics for some of the blocks and while I was sewing it all together, she was my pin puller.  She wanted to sew a few seams, but I vetoed that idea!  I really wanted to take my time and do it right!

All that is left to do is figure out a backing.  I think I might piece a few pinwheels in there too.  Perhaps a few of  the mishaps that didn't make the front?  We'll see. 
The quilting of this is going to be tough.  I will have to ponder what to do.  Stipple, straight line?  I don't know yet, perhaps the quilt will tell me when the time comes.
A big and hearty THANK YOU to my friends Carla and Shannon!   I loved AND used the scraps of SisBoom fabric that you so graciously gave me, without your kindness, this quilt would not have been!
