I don't believe it

I decided to try and complete an entire quilt this weekend, including the quilting. Usually I finish the top and then leave it for a while.It is a 3 day weekend and I found a great quick pattern with very easy quilting instructions included.Here it is. Welcome Spring by Cherri House over at Moda Bakeshop. It went together very quickly. I pieced the back ready and went to get the batting and guess what. I only have warm and natural and I really want to use a white batting so I am stuck. How typical.
Detail shot of the fabric. It is Pack your bags by Arrin Turnmire. I used the blue and green strips in a bag and thought the left over pinks were perfect for this quilt.

Jell Roll Quilt ALong

I have completed the 2 latest blocks from the Jelly Roll Quilt Along at Moose on the Porch Quilts.
I decided to use some of the background fabric in each block instead of all jelly roll. This is a great quilt along. I am really enjoying it.

We just got back from visiting family and friends in Perth. It had been over 3 years between visits. We had a great time.
When we first saw these Meerkats at Perth zoo we thought it was one fat Meerkat. I couldn't resist adding this photo.
I finally got to give my parents the lap quilts I made them.

Grans, Sorry it is a terrible photo.
