Birthday present and quilt planning!

It's my 22nd birthday today! And I was so excited to see the gift from my parents: (sorry for bad quality pics, I took them with my cell phone because my camera is MIA)


Terrain is my favorite fabric line (in case you couldn't tell), which is soon possibly to be eclipsed by my love for Central Park, but also Good Fortune. What can I say. Kate Spain, you make magic.


This is going to be a quilt just. for. me. I'm so excited to get started, but I'm not yet sure how I'm going to make the quilt top. I think I'd like to use some Kona Coal though. What do you think? Any ideas?


I made an inspiration mosaic...

I'm off to go back to school for two more days, and I'm celebrating with my friends tonight!

  6. Birthday Greetings! I love the Terrain fabric too! I picked up a jelly roll at the quilt shop today and thought about getting it, but there was other stuff that jumped in my hands too and I had to put it back for another time! My niece would love something made out of it too!
