A Quilt Comes Alive!

Last week I finished the "Be Attitudes" quilt by Nancy Halvorsen of "Art to Heart" quilts. And look at what happens when it comes alive block by block! ...starring Daughter #2, Her Sweetheart, BabyBoy, and PurseDog.

And lastly...I hope you enjoyed a quilt coming alive! Ok, let's see another Be Joyful!Have a great day, blogging friends!

You are so funny! Love your kids too!

I like Nancy's stuff. Back in the day, when she first started out and I was a partner in a shop in Kaysville, she would come by and visit whoever was working (she's a good friend of one of my former partners)

I've got the Bee pattern as well as her Navitiy pattern I would like to do too.
