My Dad's Quilt and There's A New Blogger In Town

I'm back to work today and I can't believe it is almost time to go home already!
The day went by so quickly.
Just thought I would take a minute to share the progress I've made on my dad's quilt top.
 I managed to sew (after loads of unsewing) the first 4 rows of the quilt.
 I have 2 rows of 2 sewn together.
I like the effect so far.
 What do you think?

Dad's Quilt

Also, My DD2 has a good friend that is her age that loved my quilts sooooo much 
it made her want to learn! 
Specifically these two Noah's Ark quilts that I made using a panel and designing around them.


(Sorry they are so tiny here, my actual pics are on my FB and this is how they loaded here)
I made these for a friend that had twins. 
So anyway, my new quilting friend is Stacey, and she just started a quilting blog. 
 Her blog is called "My Old Quilting Soul".
 So if you have a minute pop on over to her blog, leave her a comment, maybe even become her newest follower! 
 She would be so happy to have you. 
 It's so important for us to encourage new talent! 
 She is already talking about fabric she *needs* to buy. 
  Welcome to the club, Stacey!! 
Tell her Mama Spark sent you!

I love the two-block pattern you are using for your dad's quilt - very eye-catching. I went to visit Stacey and then forgot to come back and comment - duh!!

I like those colors in the blue quilt. What are the average prices charged to machine quilt twin and full/queensized quilt tops?? I am just beginning to piece a quilt and will never be able to quilt the top.

Your Dad's gift is terrific; love the snowball block, it's perfect for a winter/snow themed quilt!
