Ya gotta just love the Internet. So much information available with just a couple of quick keystrokes. Yesterday I was in the market for a quick, easy and smallish quilt pattern that could be made up in a jiff. I checked in at a couple of bookmarked sites and soon found a pattern that fit the bill in every way including - it was FREE!
The pattern is called Spring Clean Up and can be found at This-n-That Creations. By leaving out a border for applique, my top finished at about 29". I think it took longer choose my fabrics than it did to assemble the top.
Tonight I'm going to try out a new recipe from this cookbook. I saw Ina prepare it on her Food Network program this morning and couldn't wait to give it a try. I'll share the results with you next time.
For all of you who are mothers, have a mother, hope to one day be a mother, have a special mothering relationship with someone - Happy Mother's Day!

What great colors! I love them. I saw that pattern on their site and didn't think much of it. Sure makes a difference when you see it in "real" fabric. Happy Mother's Day to you!

I agree the internet is an amazing place. I just bought some pink and green fabric with no plans for what I can make. Your pattern find would be perfect...Thanks for the inspiration. You little quilt looks really great.
I hope you had a wonderful fun Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day Libby. Hope you had a wonderful day.
Never made an Ina recipe that was disapointing. Her Lemon Pound Cake is a staple here and gone in the wink of an eye.

Stephanie D. said...

Very cute quilt--and a bonus that it's so quick!

Hope your Mother's Day was wonderful!

julieQ said...

I love that quilt! I agree, there are so many ideas on the net...too many! I get sidetracked! Happy Mother's day!

Candace said...

Now that is a quick and cute project, Libby! I love Ina's recipes - and she is certainly not afraid to use all the things we love the most - whole cream, butter, etc!
Cheers!

Julie Isa said...
