Let's think Winter for a moment.....
I say that only because I just finished knitting a wool scarf.
It is the Broken Garter Scarf from PurlSoho and I love it.
It's soft, warm and I love this color (pink ballet).
Ok, moment is over.
It's too hot outside to think Winter. We need to enjoy the beautiful weather we have been having here in Michigan.
I have been busy the last few days. I had a customer request a baby quilt (Wednesday), so we texted back and forth for over an hour. She showed me a quilt from Etsy that she liked.

Super simple and quick.
The binding is made.
I loaded it on the longarm and used a panto called Prism which goes well with the fabric design. I even used a soft orange colored thread to quilt this.
Quilting is done.
You can see the orange thread on the dimpled, white minky.
I have to say that this baby minky from Hawthorne Threads had lots of dimples and is so very soft. I love it.
Here it is with the binding on.
Finished in plenty of time.

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
