What keeps me going!

I have never had a bigger fan of my work than my sweet little girl, Lili! She brightens up everyday for me with her infectious smile and her love of life. Each day she tells me, "Oh Mom, I love that quilt!" She is my biggest fan and I love her so much.

Heather over at Superior Threads told me to try doing some large pebble work because it will go a little faster for me. So this quilt was my first attempt at doing larger and smaller pebble work, I think I like it. It worked well for this quilt.

These characters are just too fun!

So, Lili is my biggest fan and these little guys are coming close too it. I am so happy that I am their mom. Do you like their sweaters? I got them at Children's Place for a $1.99. I love buying clearance! Have a great day!

Love the way the brown fabric looks like leather. What fabric did you use here? The boys are so cute in their "green" vests.

The littlest angel is what my ex-swimmer son would called "shaved and tapered"!

I agree that the pebble work really looks like leather.

The quilting is fabulous, and your little ones make me smile, too! My oldest son (6) tells me all the time that I am the best quilter in the world. I know it is far from true, but how nice to have someone truly believe in you!

Oh, my gosh! I love this quilt. It must have taken forever to get all those little pebbles done. And the shadow quilting is gorgeous. Cute kids too!
