sweet treats

Back in June, Hydee of Splish Splash Stash had a giveaway to celebrate her birthday and her new Juki {!!!!}  I entered, and she sent me the cutest FQ lollipops!

FQ lollipops

Henna Garden will forever be one of my favorite prints, so I was super happy to receive a colorway not already in my stash :)   Aqua & icy blue are my current color crushes - I still haven't put these away with the rest of the stash so I can admire them every time I sew!

Baby Hungary caterpillar quilt

baby Hungary Caterpillar quilt

I finished the baby Hungary Caterpillar quilt this week!  This is a quilt that came together so quickly, then sat and sat and sat, waiting for that last little bit of stitching to finish it.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who does that ;)

A shot of the back - I love this stripe print that shows all the foods the caterpillar ate in the book :)
