DWM & Quilt Story Feature!

One of my favorite quilts is being featured on Quilt Story today!
I started this way back in the summer of 2010, and finished it in March 2011. I knew from the beginning that the pink and butterflies would end up here, in my niece's bedroom.

And if you're new here, welcome! Thanks for stopping by! 
Things are a little crazy right now - my husband deploys in a week and a half, and we're living in a hotel in California while he finishes his training. Which was also a hotel in Vegas for 10 days...but now we're back in CA. After he leaves, we're living with my parents in Virginia for the summer. But we're normally residents of Oklahoma. {Don't worry - I can't keep up, either.}

We includes my son, the Dude. And two cats - they're in Virginia right now, since they don't take well to hotel living. Oh, and in the midst of all this, we're adopting from Korea. Good times.

For the last couple of months, I spent fifteen minutes a day {thanks to the Fifteen Minute Challenge, which is run by Kate in relation!} cutting "hotel sewing kits" - quilts cut out completely, since I would have no space to cut yardage. I ended up with eight kits and already finished one spiraling HST top.

Apparently my kits are loaded with HSTs. I finished trimming 252 HSTs during the Father's Day Pawn Stars marathon.

Which are slowly becoming this, on my flannel{ish} tablecloth back design wall!


  1. Congrats on the feature - that's always fun!! And nice post about all going on in your life....and it's alot!

  2. Wow, you are one busy lady. As an ex-military brat, then wife, I can totally relate to the unsettled nature of your life but unlike you, I never thought to bring sewing to keep me sane. I'm so glad I'm settled now, but would never give up that experience. Good luck on the adoption!

  3. I don't remember the pink quilt. It's just right for a little girl's room. Love the HST blocks, they remind me of lemonade.

  4. Congrats on the quilt story feature, it's a great quilt. And look at the square pants, it's beautiful Love love love the colors.
