Alphabet Soup Quilt

Look what I got at the quilt show! Only $2 on clearance, I thought it was very cute.

And my sis got this pattern. So sweet!

Aren't they adorable? I know a few ladies who are pregnant, and these might just make the perfect gifts... Though since it's called "alphabet soup," I may just have to mix the letters up a bit. :)

Quilt Show

One of our neighbors is a widow who quilts pretty much all the time. And when she ended up with two extra tickets for a quilt show she asked if my sister and I wanted to go for free. We said yes!

I really like Irish Chains and that was the main pattern at the show. I think this scrappy one is just beautiful! I may need to make an Irish Chain someday... :o)

Nothing gets one in the mood for quilting like a quilt show! When we got home we were feeling very inspired to work on our quilt! We're almost done with these squares!
