current project

almost finished with this one, I now only have 3 quilts in progress (yay!) counting this one, and I'm finished with the quilt top of another one. I really need to get some batting, so I can finish them!

are my kids the only ones who can't stay off a quilt? As soon as I lay it out, they dance (or drive) all over it.

Awww mom, they just love them! :) What a little doll! I love his footie PJ's. I love all these fabrics. I have a lot of them, but see a few I wish I had. Beautiful.

Alissa said...

Oh it's gonna be a pretty one!! And no kids for me yet but my cats seem to have the same tendency as your children. All living things love a quilt on the floor! Ha!

Kerri said...

oh, i love this!! especially how you boxed in the white ,and of course the aqua and red, and i even see a bit of brown. my favorite color combo right now! :)

and yep, my kids do the same thing when i have the quilt top layed out. i usually try and do it when my 18 months old is napping since there is no way to keep him off.

It is always attractive to be on something laid out on the floor - try with a fold-out newspaper that you look intensely on - I guess we behave like cats *puuuuurrrrrr*

The quilt is very nice! All the white really makes each colour/pattern stand out for itself :)

Sarah said...

Pretty! I love the white and blue!

rachel griffith said...

i think it's a kids thing.
my kids ALWAYS attack a quilt laying on the floor.
no matter if i threaten them or not.
tehehe.

it looks great!!!
and yayyy to only having 3 quilts in progress!!!
go you!!!

Emily said...

Um, yes my kids instantly walk on any piece of fabric/project that gets laid out on the floor, too. I wonder what the appeal is?!

Pretty colors in your quilt!

Stephanie said...

Perhaps it's their way of telling you how much they love it! :o)

Aimee said...

I love it! The colors make me think of robins, their eggs & spring.

leigh said...

i love love love this!

Smila said...

It´s so beautiful! And no, my daughter and her friends do just the same. ;-)

MichelleB said...

I love it! This quilt is looking great.

Beth said...

Beautiful! The same thing happens around here. Where there is fabric there are kids. Where there is yarn there are kids. When I need a moment to measure there are kids. The older ones are getting the hang of it now days. They will even chastise their younger sister (15 mos.) if she wanders near the sewing machine or knitting basket. They of course have their own supplies (fabric, yarn, etc.) to play with, but mine seem to hold infinitely more appeal.

Jackie said...

Great quilt! Congrats on the top. At least the quilt top is pieced, if it weren't you might have a whole different layout.

Jackie Russell said...

Love the quilt top. If you had a cat or dog they would be right there on the quilt too.

Jessy said...

Wow! This is gorgeous! And fun - no wonder your kids can't stay off of it. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Andi said...

This one is a real beauty.
There's no way my kids would keep off it if I laid it out at home.
My daughter thinks quilts are instant tea party places.
My son makes every one a train track.
Love!!
Andi :-)

Dara said...

This one is really amazing - every time I think you've made the best quilt ever you make an even cooler one. Love it!

Diva Quilts said...

For me, it's not that the kids are all over it, it's the CATS.

This a really pretty quilt, btw... :)

Sarah said...

yep. my kids do the same thing. there's just something inviting about a quilt, or anything, all layed out.

Darci said...

LOL, my daughter does the same thing. She loves to dance or lay on them.

This quilt is great! I love that the squares are all different sizes!

erica e said...

very cool quilt!
and i love my kids uncontainable excitement for a new quilt that forces them to rush in and explore the new work of art.

The Demanding Doll said...

That aqua and red is really growing on me. Too cute.

Crystal said...

Ha! I've been trying to find something like the Home Ec in yellow forever! I'd love to make a little apron out of it. For some strange reason, I love fabric too . . . and I don't even sew! ;)

cygnetsmall said...

The quilt is beautiful and we have that same bus! Awesome.

pamela said...

or the family dog...it's like the quilt is screaming jump on me jump on me. pamela www.frenchknots.blogspot.com

Betty said...

This looks great! Love the colors and the design is fun and modern. I can't say about the kids, but quilts on the floor seem to have the same effect on dogs and cats in my house.

Atlanticsong said...

My daughter does the same thing! As soon as a quilt top is complete, she whisks it off for a nap or cozy snuggle or picnic blanket...go figure! I'm glad not the only one who runs out of batting.

Yaya and Papa said...

My two dogs love to lay on my quilt tops as I lay them on my sewing room floor!! One of them is blind so it's understandable when she does it. But our younger dog (3) loves to be smack dab in the middle of every one if on the floor!!

Natasha said...

Ooh tell me about it. It is almost impossible to lay a quilt out in this house. My cat or my girls start rolling on it. And in one terrible occasion my toilet training little girl piddled on one. Now I am very careful when and where I lay the quilts out!

Natalie said...

Your apparently not the only one! :) My kids do the same thing to my quilts! They especially like it when I have block laying out and they fly up when they run through them! its great really!:)

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

So fresh! Love that turquoise!

Hey, i'm giving away fabric on my blog today, you should come check it out! Just click on my name above.

Ashley said...

This is so great! I love the random placement of the blocks! Great colors, too!

Amy @ Park City Girl said...

my little one's do the same thing! They just want to know what been occupying me :) Love your quilt top - lots of fun movement!

jacquie said...

so cute! as soon as i lay mine on the floor my dog is on top of it...the ultimate quilt tester!

Mountain Home Quilts said...

No, you're not the only one. I think I need a design wall to put my quilts up on. My 2 year old is all over any quilt I lay on the floor or on a bed!
Nice job on this quilt!!

Lee-Anne Gilbert said...

Beautiful quilt... and no it's not just kids that do that!! My dog loves to test out any quilt laid on the floor!! Lx

Anina said...

Lovely!
My cats love quilts on the floor. They will inevitable come and roll around on them leaving me crawling over the quilt with the lint roller.

amandajean said...

my kids ask permission before they walk on it. i've done a lot of training on that. ;)

i'm so impressed. only 3 quilts in progress??? i have 10. i'm working my way to 8 or 9. hopefully soon!

your quilt is LOVELY!!! i'm lovin' those colors.

Candice said...

Love it, Nettie! I've decided that after I finish my coin quilt I am doing an aqua and red one. Currently I am only a one quilt at a time girl!

Jantine said...

My quilting bee buddies where surprised about my son walking around a lay out on the floor instead of over it... If the layout has gaps, he will try to make paces on these... He is a very sweet kid and almost 6, so trained for years! But I might have been very angry before, I don't recall ;-).

in our house it's the cat who cannot stay off them.
