Count On It


"Count on It" is the new Art to Heart book by Nancy Halvorsen. Initially when I saw the book I didn't think it was for me so instead I signed up for the "Patchabilities, Inc." minis with my local quilt shop. Soon after that I saw that Michelle got the book and did the January snowman and I was jealous. YES, I said it, I was jealous. The snowman was so darn cute! So, I got the book and while Michelle and Robin were here last month shopping, Michelle and I scoured the shelves looking for like-fabrics to the ones in the book and got quite a few. I got my mother a hanger and started making her the mini quilts...which she loves. I've mailed February's off to her a while back but thought that since I'm flying down to see her on the 27th that I'd take her March, April & May.
I love how these look so I know she will too.....

I have hanging sleeves on the March and April, but the May block still needs the machine buttonholing and the hanging sleeve. That's my job for later today. For now, I need to go cut out my March Daffodils for "my" Patchabilities mini.
