a quilt for Seryn {and some business}

I don't know what's gotten into me...but I've finished another quilt (without taking my usual six month hiatus) AND I've got another lovely one underway!

This one is for my niece Seryn.  Something about the spunky colors of these fabrics just screamed her name to me. 
 The assembly was quite easy...I used a jelly roll, sewed the strips together and called it done. :)
 The quilting was intentional wavy lines...

I was trying to coordinate with the backing which was a combination of wood grains.  
 The effect is kind of hard to photograph but in real life creates a lot of fun texture. 
 I added her name and birthday in a heart "woodcarving" style.
And as one more final funky touch, I went over the binding in a hot pink zig-zag stitch.  Adds a little surprising touch. :)
I am quite pleased with the result...all finished in about 24 hours or so. 

See, anyone can make a quilt. :)

Are you ready for March's hoho's for Jesus winners?

Jessica Schrock YOU win the giant hoho!!  And Amy Thornton YOU win the Noodle and Lou wonderwoman!  Could both of you be a doll and email me your addresses?

Stay tuned for the next Hohos for Jesus giveaway! 

Also, did you hear?  Google reader is going away for good.  BOOO! 

May I suggest an alternative that you may just love?  See up in the corner there...that little blue heart?  That's bloglovin and it is just a darling way to read blogs.  I've been using it for a little bit now and just love it...you can even import your google reader feed so you don't miss a thing with any of the blogs you love!

So off you go! :)

Have a great day!

OH, have mercy! This is the most darling thing I have ever seen. I need to now go and locate a "quilting for dummies" book. Is there even such a thing?!?!? Amazing!

This quilt is gorgeous!

Also, in Welsh, the word 'Seren' means star. Even though it's spelt differently, I guess the sentiment is the same :)
