Boho Baby and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday!  In case you missed it, yesterday I have four giveaways going on right now, so be sure to go HERE to enter!  Yesterday and today, I have been having fun playing with the leftovers from my Boho Beads quilt, and turning them into a simple and chic baby quilt.  My cousin is expecting twin girls in January, and this one is destined to be well snuggled by one of them.

On the back, I used a stripe of coral medallion fabric, along with Kona Shale, which really offers a little bit of calm to this bright and busy quilt.  The binding is Cloud 9 Cirrus Solid in Amber, which is just perfect for making some of the yellows and chartreuse in the prints really pop.  And I always like to quilt baby quilts with a wider stipple, to keep them soft and easy to snuggle.  This finished quilt measures 40" x 45," and I love how the simplicity of the pattern really lets the fabrics shine.

This little quilt is not my most exciting news from my week though!  This past weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to present a trunk show and teach my Bubble Bath class at a quilt retreat in Hattiesburg, MS.  It was an amazing group of quilters, and we shared a lot of laughs throughout the day.  It is always neat to see how others interpret my patterns!  Here are a few fun pics from the day.

By the way, I would love to present a trunk show or teach to your group.  I'm booked through 2016, but I am currently taking bookings for 2017.  Check out my Teaching page (at the top), or just send me an email for more information.  Let's have a quilt party!

Last week's NTT had some amazing projects linked, like this Knots of Color quilt by A Dream and A Stitch.

or this Cotton and Steel quarter log cabin by Deb at New Creative State-

and Jayne at Twiggy and Opal turned her daughter's art into this stunning mini!

Y'all rock it out every single week!  Let's party, friends!

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!  :)

**PLEASE NOTE- recently, there have been several spam links on our parties that are not quilting and sewing related.  My initial reaction was to delete them immediately, but my linky service provider has asked that I leave them so they can be investigated and permanently blocked.  I will remove those links after my provider has all of the info he needs but it may take a few days.  So, please do not click on any links that are not clearly quilting related, and thank you for your understanding!
