Hello, 2012

Well, hello! I hope 2012 is treating you well so far. I have a lot of things to share with you. First up, I met a blog friend last week.

I met Rue!

Rue was in Texas last week, so I made the drive up to New Braunfels to meet her in person! We agreed that after talking online for so long, it was a little weird to be sitting across from one another. She's so sweet, and her little Tadpole is even cuter in person. And look at that completed Stripe Study she's wearing! Mine still isn't finished, but I am working on the border, so it shouldn't be too much longer!

I'm so glad I got the chance to meet her!

I've been working on a baby gift. My first best friend ever is having a baby this month. Her shower is this weekend, so I finally started on her present last week.

Starting something new

I'm making her a Fenced In quilt from Elizabeth Hartman's book. And of course, I am using the adorable Outfoxed prints by Lizzy House. Love!


I finished the quilting this weekend, and the binding has been pinned. I should be able to finish in time!

I'm also moving ahead with some wedding plans! I found a venue this weekend, which is really setting things into place! I'll share more on that soon.

Have a great week, everyone!


  1. Very cool to meet a bloggy friend! I hope to some day too! ;-)

  2. I love the colors in this quilt! It's gonna be gorgeous!!

  3. That quilt is going to look fantastic!

  4. You two are adorable! so fun to meet bloggy friends!
    That quilt is going to be great. And I can't wait to hear more about your wedding plans.

  5. Happy New year!! It's always so fun to meet up with bloggy friends, that's awesome. That quilt is to die for!!

  6. you are super quick! that baby quilt is adorable and went together so fast! tell me about your basting preferences. do you ever spray baste or just use pins? you and rue look adorable too! so fun to meet bloggy friends!

  7. That quilt is so cute...what a sweet gift! Make sure to post a picture of it finished all the way...I'd love to see it!

  8. Sounds like a fun meet up! That quilt looks great, can't wait to see it finished! Look like your 2012 is starting off right. :)

  9. It was so much fun to meet you in person! And I have big news for you: I actually worked on my quilt yesterday! I'm only two strips away from being done with the third block.

    I have you to thank for that - all of your quilting shots kept pushing me to get back to my own quilt. And this latest one is no exception. I love the fabrics!

  10. i love nontraditional colors for a baby quilt. can't wait to see it finished!

  11. Beautiful quilt and I'm jealous you got to meet Rue!!! And Tadpole! Eek!

  12. As I said on cool you and Rue met. When I first met Mel and Tad, it was definitely strange for a couple hours...but then we ended up spending almost 2 days together traveling around western Oregon and by the end, it felt like being with 2 people I'd known all my life. Very special.

    I really like the colors in your new quilt...a slight variation on the brown/blue combo I'm so fond is working really well!

  13. So great that you got to meet up with a blog friend, and that outfoxed quilt is too adorable!!

  14. Love the quilt!! That is going to be such a sweet gift!! Looking forward to hearing more of your wedding plans too:) Looks like you are off to a good start in 2012
