Twirl Rag Quilt

Yes again, Tanya has created another rag quilt for today's post.  In my own defense (Richard)  I did actually get 3 quilts bound today (Pictures and posts in the next week or so after they are washed).  I have also been working off and on the last couple weeks on a side programming job (some how working gets paid better then playing) and since I have had my eye on a couple bundles I wanted to buy (see bottom of post for one of them). I have been slacking on my quilting duties. Tanya has made up for where I have slacked off.

 James, my 17 year old son, was bored  today and we had a site re-vamp.  He is a graphics design guy and he was the one that changed and picked the old colors and designs.  He wanted a different look, so today we went a little purple.  (If your reading in reader come look and see what you think). I personally think he did wonderful.  Tanya says her heart is missing, so James said when I get done with this post he is going to fix that.  A big thank you for him today.


Tanya loves the Me and My Sisters lines and for those that do not know, we had a bundle,"Twirl",  its almost gone now and this will be one of the last few quilts made from it.  This is a rag quilt.  She has the cotton fabric on top and bottom and a flannel inside.  It looks really cute and will be one of my favorite rag quilts.


The back of this quilt has all of the same fabric.  Tanya really loves blue and if you had to pick a single color for her that would be it.

It has started to snow here in Utah (in fact the last 2 days straight) and I am now in the mood to buy Christmas presents.  Since I had to get approval from her to buy it (even though I earned the extra money).   I don't wait well.  I want to share with you her first Christmas Present.


This is the full fat quarter bundle of the line Pieces of Hope from Riley Blake  and some yardage (We bought it from Fat Quarter Shop).  Both my boys have Asperger's Syndrome (high functioning autism) and one of the symbols for autism is the puzzle piece.  They are all different, but some how fit together.

The other gift I plan to get her is the new line Ticklish which is also a Me and My Sisters Design.  Though it is not due out until January.  I sadly will have to sit here and just admire it on the web until  then.

Lastly I will share this, just cause she is cute.

I like the new layout. James did a great job.
I love the big florals and big dots in the Ticklish line. It looks like it will be a fun one to make quilts with.

I love Tanya's quilt. That's a great fabric line! I look forward to seeing how the puzzle fabrics are put into quilts. What a great present - no surprise, though. =) And the web site looks great!
