Black and White and Pink all over

So I have three days left to finish this. Nothing like a deadline to get the creative juices (or as I like to call it: "panic") flowing, huh? Kinda gets you moving, especially when you have a whole YEAR to make something and leave it til the last 3 days. But I have been known to do heroic amounts of sewing in very small amounts of time, so there is a chance that I will skate in under the deadline. I think I am going to call a quilt top a finish in this case. (Well, I always call a quilt top a finish, but that's not what we are talking about here.)
I have a box of frou frou to embellish this quilt. It will be for me, so I can have a sparkly, girly quilt to watch t.v. under.
I am a bit of a messy creator as is evidenced by these photos.

Do you... smell something?

Yes, yes. In there.


Ah! Someone must have stashed these in here for use in case of emergency.

This situation is not an emergency yet, unfortunately. Maybe on the 31st as I am frantically trying to finish this quilt top I will break open the box. MAYBE this situation won't even turn into an emergency and I can save it for later. ;0)


  1. love the colours....and yes, the frou frou is a must. It will look so beautiful when it's done. I recommend backing it in something really soft - flannel or minky. divine.
    those chocolates having me craving now...in Canada we have 'turtles' which are the same thing.

  2. Looks great so far....you know we quilters work best under pressure.....LOL......Take care.

  3. I have faith you'll get it finished. I, too, am a messy creator. My craft room is always so messy that it's really quite embarrassing, especially if someone who isn't crafty sees it!

  4. Howdy i'm new on here, I came accross this message board I find It very accommodating and its helped me out loads. I hope to contribute and help other people like it has helped me.

    Thank's, See You Later.
