sweet simplicity...

I made a super simple quilt for my niece for her 8th birthday. We celebrated this past weekend and so I am now able to share this.
I'm never good at naming my quilts, so since her middle name is Lane this one worked great!

to Omaha and back...

I've returned from my Quilt Show bus trip to Omaha, and it was a blast! The months of planning paid off and it sounded like everyone had a great time! The quilt stores along the way were all wonderful and I picked up some great things. I thought I would share my goodies with you all!

I had never worked with paper piecing until starting my Dear Jane quilt, where that paper piecing is a necessity. I have found that paper piecing is fun (you either like it or you hate it). I found this cutsie little paper piecing kit of a watermelon and a pear. They are simple and small and way to cute to pass up.
I found my panel I had been looking for. I had purchased the set of fat quarters a while back and when I saw this panel all by it's lonesome I had to get it. It is a Free Spirit Fabric by Tina Givens called Fairy Tip Toes

Just some of this and that. I just liked these and that was good enough reason to buy them!

I fell in love with this Halloween grouping. Since Max is a Oct 27th baby, this will go to him one day! Until then it will look fabulous on my couch during the month of October! It is a Sheri Berry Designs Trick or Treat Street for Lynd Hurst Studio

Found my Wonderland by Momo! LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!

Discovered this Moda Nest by Tula Pink...couldn't leave Nebraska without it!!

I had to throw in this picture of a Dear Jane quilt at the Omaha Quilt Show. It is the first that I have seen in person and it was VERY inspirational. This one was started in 2003. I'm ready to get back in the groove with mine!!
