Happy to be sleeping under my fabulous Swoon quilt! Below is what I received back from Abby at Latimer Lane. I chose the Cotton Seed edge to edge design, and I think it looks great! It got nice & crinkly after washing.
The Machine Binding Tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew saved me & my quilts from a horrid frame job. See Below:
Then, because the baby has been born- Happy Birthday Noah!! I started & finished a baby quilt from my bestest friend Kim:
I hope Noah gets lots of snuggling done in this quilt! My favorite block is the wonky star with the fussy cut whale in the center. I had success again with the binding! Phew, wiping sweat from brow...

In my life, outside of quilting, or maybe because of the peace I feel when quilting I have decided to change my job. I am leaving the acute care setting of the hospital to start caring for people in the comfort of their own homes. I am excited to bring the peace I have cultivated at home to my job!
I've been a cardiac nurse for over 6 years in the chaos of the hospital setting, and look forward to a slower pace. I no longer appreciate my 13-hour shift and the amount of energy it takes to go strong for that long! Wish me luck, this is a big change, but truly an exciting one. Leaving my long-time friends will be so hard, but of course I anticipate seeing them away from the hospital.
Linking up with Needle & Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation.
