Where Has The Time Gone?

Wow! It's been a while since I have updated my blog. Mostly because I haven't been working on anything lately. Until now that is. I hate it when I get so busy that I don't have time to make something. Stitching, sewing, painting, ect.. are the ways that I relieve stress and when I'm the busiest, that's exactly when I need to relieve stress! So here's what I've been up to.

Here is the quilt that I am making for my cousin Nathan. I have finished the quilt top!

I pretty much designed it myself, not that the design is real complicated. I wanted to leave the army, navy, air force, ect, fabrics in wide strips so that he could see all the details of the fabrics. It ended up a little bit longer than I expected but that should work out just fine since my cousin is super tall and still growing.

I added these cute stars in the corners to give it interest. I am quite pleased with how it all turned out and I'm sure he's going to love it.

Now I have to machine quilt this one and Emily's quilt (the one with the butterflies) before Christmas. If I have extra time, I may make a few pillowcases to match both quilts.
