Finished a Quilt Whilst on Vacation

And I must say I love it! These are 4" squares from Amy Butler's "Daisy Chain" collection, with 3" white Kona sashing. Measures 35" x 35" ... and its listed in my Etsy shop.
Front:**Look closely and you can see the Lake down below the deck where these photos were taken**

Pieced Back (I threw in some Wildwood Tree fabric and some greenMonaco fabric):

All over stippling design which I think is my favorite part:

Pieced binding:


We had a great vacation at Lake Norris, Tennessee, and here's a funny little thing that happened while trying to pull up the anchor: We caught a tire!
I'm all rested up and ready to get started on some more projects! I have three bags to sew, a commissioned baby boy quilt, and two lap sized quilts I want to get started. ONE of them for my livingroom, even. I'm quite excited!
Tomorrow I'll try to post pics of the new Laptop Sleeve I made from Sew, Mama, Sew!
which now keeps our Macbook nice and cozy~

I feel like I've missed quite a bit over the last week, what have you all been up to? Finished any projects? Have a WIP? Do share...

I can't believe you finished a quilt while on vacation! Bravo! I finished a quilt for my sister's friend and I'm working on another for my niece for her birthday. I've just got the quilting and binding to go :)

Welcome back! I just got back from 2 weeks away and I did nothing constructive while traveling. I feel so far behind. I'm torn between reading blogs, updating my own or creating. Got to get busy so I can catch up on everything and all the newsy blogs!!!
