Hi!    (pictures updated Jan 27th!)
I signed up for Friday Night Sew In and actually was able to finish 2 things!
I set as my 2013 goals, to start the Bee in My Bonnet Row Along!
I had purchased a layer cake of Flirt by Sandy Gervais on Cyber Monday, it seemed to speak to me, it wanted to be this quilt.

My friend Linda and I went to our local quilt shop, Country Cottage Quilts and she helped me pick my background fabric.  I think it is perfect!
(pic coming soon)
Here are my 1st 2 rows!  As I only have a layer cake, I started with the largest blocks, to keep the rows with the smallest pieces for the ends.
What do you think....
I am sorry I did not take more pictures, but I was outside in a t-shirt and did not realize how cold it was!
the row on the right is the Butterflies (without the top and bottom strips) and the left side is the cups, albiet upside down! 
Unfortunately, the background does not show well, it is a paprika coloured batik with small polka dots.  It made the reds in the print fabrics jump right up and say Yes!  I am here! 
You can see all the snow we have!
Have a great week,
Take care, Leslie


  1. It looks nice but it is really hard to see. The picture won't enlarge for me. Amazing that you participated - aren't you leaving on holiday soon ? :)

  2. It looks very cute but picture small so hard to see. Happy to see you are busy again. When do you go on holidays and where are you going this year? The weather very cold down here but not much snow. Blessings Sandra

  3. Flirt is so pretty - is the red a true red or is it a little bit salmon colored? Emmy had an outfit on the other day that was salmon and light aqua, and it was so cute - I want to make a quilt for her in those colors this year.


Thank you for visit and saying Hello!
