Hello Everyone,

First I want to thank everyone for their wonderful suggestions for border options on my Molita quilt. I have finally read through all of them and am anxious to finish this quilt. Thank you!! Now onto my regularly scheduled post...

I may not be a coffee drinker, but this kind of coffee, Kona that is, makes everything better. Couple that with some Kaffe Fassett prints and you have one quilt that is making my heart sing. Here are the beginnings of this wonderful new project. It is the Weed Whacker pattern from Bonnie.

It consists of 2" strips and 3.5 inch squares. This is something that we all have available to us, right?

The best part of this whole quilt is that Tina taught us all at the retreat last weekend. About half of the 50+ people attending the retreat participated in this project. For pictures of everyone's quilt tops just go here to Tina's blog. She did a fabulous job. You can see her presentation board behind her. This was a quick project to do and sometimes we all need this, something quick. I knew that I did and enjoyed every minute of putting this one together. Thank you, Tina!!

I was so excited about finishing this one that I couldn't stop. So now that I have the body of this top together, I just had to take it outside on this very mild, 60 degree, sunny day and do a photo shoot.

I really love how the Kona Coffee works with the Kaffe prints that I chose.

It looks wonderful in the sun. But, it feels good to be in the sun anyway! Although if you take a close look at some of the photos you can still see snow on the ground.

So here is the whole body of the quilt. I say body because there were some "bonus" pieces that were made in the process of piecing the quilt top that will be added as part of the border. So stay tuned for more. This is not done yet.

The next picture is to prove that winter is not yet gone, but spring really wants to come along soon.

Do you believe it?? These are in my own garden bed. Daffodils are poking their heads through and I am loving it!!

Until Next Time...
