quilts and knitting and ICAD, oh my!

Lots going on over here at Chez Starfish these days. The most exciting is..... 2 more days of school/work before SUMMER VACATION!

My Easy Like a Sunday Morning quilt is finished and I seriously love it. It was inspired by the book Sunday Morning Quilts.

It uses a lot of my aqua and orange scraps:

It was quilted by the fantastic, fabulous Gina of Ginabean. Pebbles (my favorite), swirls, wavy lines, etc!

In knitting news, I'm chomping at the bit to make a Color Affection. What colors should I use? I'm going to buy yarn tomorrow or Tuesday and take it all with me to the beach this week.

ICAD has started and it looks like I've roped Sarah into it with me! Here's my second card:

I mentioned in my last post that I'm working on my hand lettering skills so I'll be practicing a lot with ICAD! I won't be posting every card here but I will be making one per day.

Beautiful! You better watch out when you bring it to share, it might disappear! My fav color combo orange and aqua! You also roped me into ICAD! Thanks I just needed a little push. We have 4 days with kids and one work day.


Lovely quilt, and perfect with the added bit of orange! The shawl would look nice in those colors too.


The quilt turned out great. Looks great for snuggling under with a good book. The fabric looks like it would be very soft and cozy.

This is a very pretty quilt. It's so soft and fresh-looking!


As always your quilt is just beautiful!

I have yarn picked out for my Color Affection -- two shades of aqua (one solid, one variegated) and a white/ivory. Just need to cast on!

Love that orange block in the midst of the aqua!
