A lovely rainy Saturday

Yesterday was rainy and overcast here in Alabama - a good excuse to hang around the house and be lazy! I was able to finish the binding on this baby quilt in time to take it to quilt guild meeting Thursday night for show-n-tell. The baby shower was on Saturday. Lots of yummy foods and good friends. Summer loved the quilt.

This was the first quilt where I attempted to change thread colors. I couldn't find a thread color that looked good with the brown, blue and green - so I used three colors. The blue and brown thread blended into the blue backing but the cream color thread really stood out and made a cool design. You should be able to click for a larger picture.

I also made these yummy cupcake bites for the party. The inside is chocolate cake crumbled up and combined with chocolate frosting. The outside coating is almond bark. For more yummy edible ideas, check out Bakerella at .

This is me and the mommy-to be. Her due date is June 14th - but I am trying to convince her the 17th is better.

Have a wonderful weekend! The kids are done with school so let our summer of fun begin!

Wow, you even make matching cupcakes to go with your quilts. I am impressed. The quilt is beautiful here, and was even more beautiful in person. Now I am off to check out this bakerella site.
