Little Quilts and BOM

Firstly I'd like to give a really big "Thank You" to everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes. I'm still working on getting back to each person...this will take me a couple of days to get caught up. I get so distracted by all the lovely things posted that it takes me longer to get around to the emails and then I'm reading new blogs and loose track of what I was doing....it's all good stuff, don't get me wrong...I love all your visits.
I finished my first 2 blocks for the Lori Smith Peaceful Nights. The first one sure has a lot of small pieces, some of you mentioned that in the last post....I didn't think about that when I signed up....my head was thinking "ooooh I just love those fabrics". These blocks really have some gorgeous fabrics. I'm very happy with the blocks and look forward to the next months blocks.
I've quilted the 2 nine patch quilts I did this week. There both washed and all binded. I've got to get going on quilting the pink and brown little quilt and the one with the flying geese.
Since Valentine's Day is so close I thought it would be a good time to show a better picture of this little heart quilt I did a few years ago. I love it so much it's in my header and my living room for me to enjoy all year round.


I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Happy Quilting.

I am crazy about your BOM - those blocks are stunning!

Wow, you've quilted the nine patch little quilts. That's wonderful - they are sooooooooooo cute. Can't wait to see the others.

And, you already know how much I love your heart/header quilt. Must make that one real soon.

BTW, did I tell you that I sent off two months of mini 9 patches? I mailed them on Friday so hopefully you'll have them real soon.
