Fabric Give-A-Way From Cuts of Cotton and A Busy Week

This past week has been so busy. A lot has happened. 

My monthly quilting goal is to finish the Lighthouse quilt. http://www.freshlemonsquilts.com/?p=3149. It’s basted and I’ve finished stitching in the ditch. I will be doing free motion in each of the light areas below.

This quilt is for our newest cousin who was born this week on Wednesday, March 12, in Chicago. Each of the four triangles are lighthouses. But one of my friends in my quilting clinic said it reminded her more of beach umbrellas.  Either way it is representing Lake Michigan. 

On the back I used a strip of scraps in between 1/3 and 2/3rd’s of the green and white checkered fabric. In my last post, http://www.hudsonvalleyquilts.com/2014/03/quilting-blogging-and-taxes.html, I showed part of that strip. In the end, that strip is going to take on some embellishments. I will keep that a surprise for now. But I will tell you that it has do with Andrew’s new family.

I had a birthday too. Tuesday, March 11. And my husband and I had a great day.  It started with a long walk together outside.  The temperature was in the upper 50’s.  Finally!!  This was followed by a long massage at a new spa in Briarcliff, New York, http://www.bellamaiyadayspa.com/ I highly recommend it to those of you who live in the area, or may visit Westchester County, New York someday.

Later we had a cupcake decorating lesson and learned how to decorate with fondant and pipe icing through plastic bags at, http://www.sweetoothkatonah.com/.

This was our journey;

We added special food coloring into the plain white fondant.  Not to appetizing yet. But it will be! 

A bee.  Looks more appetizing now!! 











We’re in progress at this point.

Our finished cupcakes; iced, decorated and ready to take home!! We only ate one each so far. They are yummy!!  The others we put in the freezer for another day.


This is us, showing off our cupcakes.

And this week we have a great give-a-way from Cuts of Cotton.
