5 Things Friday…


It’s time to remember some of the things that have made me smile this week but first I wanted to write about the Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along that is hosted by Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl. This is a free quilt along that Yvonne is hosting based on photos her husband takes of snowflakes. I figured since I live in Colorado I should have a snowflake quilt so I decided to play along. Cheryl’s sample is all solids so I thought I would try that out. I’ve never done a quilt in all solids so this is new territory for me.

IMG_3675These are the fabrics I decided to go with for the Snowflake Quilt. This last spring in Colorado, we had a heavy snowstorm where there was so much water in the snow that you could see an aqua colored tint in the snow when you moved it with a shovel. These colors reminded me of that so I thought they would be a perfect choice.

I’m also linking up with Amanda at Gypsy Moon Quilt Co so I can share the 5 things that made me smile this week. I really enjoy doing this, it makes me take a moment to think about the good things in my life, appreciate the little things and use my camera more. All good things!

  1. Having a weekend where I did absolutely nothing except go to the grocery store and watching HGTV.
  2. Listening to thunder as I fall asleep.
  3. Talking with friends about fun vacations.
  4. Long talks on the phone with mom.
  5. Being so prepared that I was able to take my lunch to work every day this week so I didn’t have to buy lunch.

  1. Another great list. I’m not doing this QAL but look forward to seeing how yours turns out. Should be good!

  2. Beautiful fabric choices and I really love the story behind your palette inspiration! Nature has the best color combos! 😄 Thanks for linking up! It rains a lot here, but it’s always a quiet rain. It’s been a long time since I’ve fallen asleep to thunder. Love that. Happy Friday!

  3. A weekend of nothing but HGTV?? Heaven. Oh, what I would do for a weekend like that. And thunder at night! The only thing that beats it is listening to rain on a morning you’d already decided to sleep in. Have a fantastic weekend!

  4. So tempted to do this QAL with Yvonne! I do love your color choices and this would be a great way for me to try solids too. Have a great week!

  5. Great list! I have not made anything using 100% solids either, but am tempted with many photos that I see. Looking forward to seeing further photos of yours! Enjoy those long talks with your mom. I miss that so much, but remember our conversations well.

  6. I love your 5 things! solids are scary! Ive never made an all solid quilt either. also totally jealous that you got to watch HGTV all weekend! 🙂
