Life: 1 Jessica: 1

Finally a finished project to share.  Life hit me like a ton of bricks this last week and I have just been in survival mode, but now I think I am somewhat back under control and ready to make some cutie patootie stuff again.  This quilt was a wedding gift for my cousin (I made her the matching tablerunner and towels a few weeks ago).  This is my Go-To quilt pattern.  When time and energy are short---this is what I make. 
The pattern is 5 and Dime by All Washed Up. I found it over HERE at the FQSHOP for sale.  I made the smaller size.  It uses 6 fat quarters and there are NO seams to match up---BIG SMILE!!!!  If you have never quilted (or if you have) and want an easy quilt to start off with---this is the one.  PLUS, I have NEVER not liked the finished product of this one.  It never disappoints me!!!!
The back might be my most favorite-ist part.  I usually make my backs all one fabric, but I loved this pieced back. Especially because the backing was my favorite fabric of the bunch.
The fabric is Neutral Mediterranean and I got the fat quarters and yardage at JoAnns. 
Nothing feels as good as a finished project after a long craft break---sigh.  Now I just need to clean my house (I have also taken a bit of a break from that).
