NTT- Come Party!

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday!  It occurred to me yesterday that I haven't posted since last week's party, which is a little out of the norm for me.  Well, the reason is because I have been busy with some super secret sewing lately.  I'm such a terrible secret-keeper, but sometimes, it just can't be helped.  I've actually already started and finished one secret project, and then started another one.  I can't tell you what I'm working on, but here's a sneak peek-

I just can't resist a pile of scrappy improv rainbow goodness.  Since I can't show you anything else, you'll have to ogle the eye candy from last week's party!  I love this modern awesomeness from Mary at Fleur de Lis Quilts.

Or this beauty from Kris at Sew Sunshine-

and I am loving the colors and movement in this quilt from Diana at Red Delicious Life-

and since I didn't really get to share a project from myself, I'll finish of with a bonus highlight this week.  The bright, busy prints in this quilt from Anne at SpringLeaf Studios really tug at my heart, and with one look, I'm sure you'll see why-

Because, I LOVE all of the Amy Butler prints- that's why!

Alrighty then, y'all!  Time to show me what you've got.  Let's link up!

1.  You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. Thanks for the shout-out! And that Springleaf Studios quilt has your name written all over it with those AB fabrics. :)

  2. Love the sneak peek at your secret project. All that color is just so inspiring. Thanks for featuring my quilt too. I've got another Amy B quilt top that needs to get finished up, and one I'm about to start with oranges and navy. In the meantime I'm deep into a Kaffe project.

  3. There is nothing like some rainbow piecing for me - it's great eye candy. Good luck working through the secret sewing; it is super tough for me, too.

  4. Ohhh, rainbow improv! Can't wait to see!!

  5. Oh Kelly, your rainbow project looks gorgeus! Aren't the colours best! Working with so beautiful scraps makes us happy even in a rainy day! x Teje

  6. Your rainbow looks splendid, look forward to seeing it soon :) I love Anne's quilt too, perfect for spring - the colours are so joyful!

  7. Hey Kelly! I am swooning over your fabrics on the little peek you gave us!! Wow! They are fantastic!!! Can't wait to see the finished product!!!

  8. I hate secrets!! But I do love rainbows, so I'm sure I'll love your secret project!

  9. That secret project of rainbow goodness has me so curious to see the finished project!

  10. Your fabrics are like a box of Skittles spilled!!! I am sure the quilt will be lovely. Hope to see it soon.

  11. Wow thanks so much for featuring my 'rebel' quilt. Love your improv blocks too!

  12. Your secret sewing looks great. I love rainbow-goodness. Happy sewing.

  13. Wow! Your secret rainbow is beautiful. Preeti's metaphor is spot on!

    Yesterday I was going to write you a note to thank you for featuring my quilt and about how difficult it was to make. I couldn't write it though. I guess I needed to think about how it's change me. I feel that I have more freedom now that I've struggled. I like the quilt in part because I persevered but mostly because of the freedom I gained. It took me a day to figure it out, but I am very grateful that you serendipitously helped out and wanted to finally say thanks!

  14. Love those rainbow scrap blocks. Looking forward to seeing how your secret sewing comes out.


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
