my bulb is burning!

last july, i had made a "roads" quilt and entered it into the local county fair. i didn't win but i received recognition.

my hurricane (barely three) had her animal toys out and she positioned them so that they were "drinking."


my little light bulb bursted on...i was going to make her a jungle roads quilt. that day, we went to jo-anns and i had her pick out green and blue fat quarters.

i started drawing up a simple 3x3 block quilt...something sweet and small. well, i wasn't happy w/ the different sketches that i drew up.

my final "map" of the jungle quilt turned out to be a 7x8 block quilt. it's going to be our couch quilt. so of course we had to get more fat quarters!

on national quilt day (march 21) i finally finished the top and sandwiched it together. i'm uber happy with the results!

the backing is halloween fabric and dang it all, i still have a bunch of it leftover!

i'm trying to rush through the baby quilt i'm making for a sister-n-law so i can start quilting this one.

i also haven't named it yet, but i think my hurricane's leaning towards animal quilt. haha
