Q is for.... quick quilt

on monday i started a quilt. a quilt that i actually had a dream about. whenever that happens i know i have to bring it into reality!

so this is what it looked like on monday.....

and this is what it looked like yesterday - finished!!

i don't know what my favorite part is....the fabulous houndstooth backing?...or maybe the funky individual squares (each fabric has a story all it's own)?...or maybe the fact that the denim squares are my sons old jeans?....or maybe it's that screamin' pink satin quilt binding? it's probably all of it, and the fact that this quilt came to me in a dream, and now i can cuddle up underneath it and 'dream' up more projects!!
i dearly love my "inspiration quilt"!!!!

amazing work kim! i so cannot quilt so i'm incredibly jealous and am tempted to steal your latest creation...well, and all your creations really. hey what ever happened to the idea of making more of your applique tees and selling them on etsy?! i need one of those!

so so cute Kim. You inspire me! I dream up things all the time and just don't take the time to carry them out. I love that you are always creating! Very very cute. I think I love the binding the best- well maybe not the best, but the combo of it all is truly artistic! Enjoy!!!
