Carol, I really like your baby quilt. The colors are fresh and the pattern is fun - very nice job :-)
I finally got to do some sewing today! After rearranging my sewing room, I was looking at my stash and spotted a panel from Block Party Studios I bought 4 or 5 years ago. It says "therapy in session" and has a picture of a woman working on a huge quilt at her sewing machine. So, I grabbed a sewing-themed fat quarter and a matching green fat quarter and went to work! The project gave me more time to work with my new iron and feel like I accomplished something, too. The top is done and I'll post a picture of it and my new room arrangement soon.
It sounds like you had a good dose of therapy today.
Yep! A few more pieces for the "Meet me in Paris"
A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars.

I about have the star blocks finished for FM. I will tell you the directions for this thing stink, though.
I pulled fabrics for my next Cat quilt and got them all ready to start cutting tomorrow - and I got a Bunny Hill pattern down and am thinking of enlarging it as that quilt is just too small for me - so am going to enlarge the cat pattern about 100% and see if that will work. I figure I will make 12" blocks her blocks are 8" and 8 x 16 so maybe only have to increase by 50% but will work on that when i get up in the morning - have some fabrics pulled for it... fun fun fun... getting motivated...
I really like your baby quilt. Great fabric selection.
Judy Iliff:I agree, Kris. I do know that during the National College Finals Rodeo, they select one day where all contestants, including the bull riders, wear pink for breast cancer awareness. I'm not sure if they're doing that the National Professional Finals.
they did that in the NFL this past season. Some of the players work pink shoes and arm bands ans the coaches had pink hats.
Carol, wow, that was fast. Great quilt. I remember when every thing 'baby' was expected to be soft pastels and white. Like too much bright solid colors would be alarming and disturbing to the baby.
It's fun to see something different. Much more creative license these days.
Here is my "therapy in session" wall hanging top. Once it's complete, I'll hang it in my quilting room.
The panel was white, but it looked a bit stark next to the fabric, so I used some fabric pens to color it in. I'm not sure if I want to color in the whole quilt :-) The corner blocks in the border have Rx and little quilt blocks in them.
I think your wallhanging is perfect the way it is. So cute.
Fantastic idea with the rx and quilt blocks. Really finishes it within theme.
Patti & all, the Rx was on the bottom section of the pane - I chose to use just part of it. Here's a link to a picture of the panel on Block Party Studios' site:
They have some fun panels for quilters (inventory control, search engine, things quilters really think, etc.) as well as others. The dog wall hanging I did for the UFO contest included a panel from here.
Thanks for your nice comments :-)
Eileen: Your therapy wall hanging turned out cute. It will make a nice addition to you sewing space.
