The Secret Drift

The last few days I have been busy working on a little secret project.  I know, another one, sorry.  This one came about sort of last minute so it was one of those peddle to the metal, get it done rather snappy type of projects :)  So Saturday was cutting.  I love the beautiful tones of Angela Walter's newest line Drift.  They are so soothing to work with!

Monday and Tuesday was piecing.  The top came together quick and it was a lot of fun to piece.  Then it was time to make a quilt back from this awesome oval element cappuccino print.  I love me a good polka-dot!!

And yesterday was quilting day.  I know I am so spoiled to have a long arm available for my use two doors away.  And I have to say, I love it!!!  It especially come in handy  for these super quick projects.  I quilted a combination of wavy lines with some good old swirls.  This is the first time I have tried that and I really liked the way it turned out ;)

Then it was a quick machine binding and this little Secret Drift project was in the mail by the end of the day.  Yippee!!  I promise to show more in a little bit :)

Getting this project in the mail yesterday was so very important because today starts Girls Weekend Out!!!   I get to spend the entire weekend relaxing with Barbara and my Sister-In-Laws!!!     We were given use of a condo in Park City so it's no kids and just us girls having a great time for 3 1/2 whole days!!!  Ya, I am totally excited!!!  (can you tell by all the exclamation points :)   Nothing but Rest and Relaxation, bring it on!!!

Have a Happy Quilting (or relaxing) Day!!
