Rainbow of Love

I've finished my Quilt For Pulse which has been organized by the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild.
Here is my label.  I think it would be fun if the recipient visited the blog - we'll have to see.
I had to purchase a backing fabric as everything I had at the house seems wrong somehow.  I wanted it to be cheerful without being too cheerful.  I thought this dahlia print would be good for a quilt going to Florida.
I've filled it with several hugs.  I hope it brings a small amount of comfort to someone affected by the horrible tragedy.

Here is a fun little project that I made last week.  My daughter, Hanna, usually takes her breakfast to her room to start the day on this little tray from Ikea.
 I make a little string quilt liner for it so things don't slip around.
I pieced and quilted it at the same time using the sew and flip method.  I think it's called flip and sew but that makes NO SENSE.
I added a little extra straight line quilting.
 I put this funny cat newspaper fabric on the back for her.
Speaking of funny cats I definitely recommend the movie "The Secret Life of Pet" and also "Finding Dory".  I love to go to the movies in the summer where it is dark and cool :)

Corn Hole Update:  Check out the decoration that my boy, Andrew, did on this set that went to our farm for the Fourth of July.  Great Job Andy!!
I'm having a small fabric sale on Instagram and Etsy this week so check them out if you're interested in picking up a few bargains.  I'll put a notice on the FWB Facebook page the day of the sale.

Happy Monday

  5. Love the Heart Quilt, I am sure it will be appreciated. I too have a slippery tray and I think I will pinch your idea for a tray liner. I know that method as Stitch and Flip and I enjoy using up my strings that way. I always enjoy your posts. Regards Jacky

  16. Your heart quilt is really lovely Barb, but I especially like the trayliner. Its given me an idea, cause in the weekends when I take a tray of brekkie to bed with my tablet ( ipad) I have to use a tea towel so things dont slip around.

  17. Your quilt is wonderful and you got it done so fast! I love your label, of course they will contact you.
    I was just thinking I needed a tray to bring up coffee in the morning and the mug rug thingy is a great solution to keep them from sliding all over and I think I will have to steal your idea!
