Woo hoo! It's Thursday Again!

Welcome to another Needle and Thread Thursday!  A few things have been going on around here.  The first thing (that you've probably already noticed), is that I decided to brighten up my blog design.  I had lots of fun doing it and I hope you like it!  Of course, that means that your old Needle and Thread Thursday button no longer works, so I'd appreciate it if you'd grab the new one.  I hated to have everyone have to change their buttons, but I really hope the design changes are worth the hassle!  Here's the new button to grab-

My Quilt Infatuation

I'm also excited to share progress on the fourth (and final) memory quilt made from my grandfather's shirts, and I'm going for preppy with this one.  It's a chevron quilt- what could be preppier?  I got all of my HST's finished, pressed Tuesday night.




And got the quilt top finished this evening!  I decided to add a navy stripe to either side, since I needed the quilt to be a little bit wider.  Since this quilt is part of a set of four, I wanted them all to be roughly the same size (about 60 x 60).



I'm hoping to get this pressed, basted and finished this weekend!

So, onto a review of last week's NTT.  It was a fantastic link-up!  Take a look at some of the projects that especially caught my eye-

Stephanie at Quarter Incher shared this adorable mini quilt-



I'm (dare I say it?) swooning over Ms. Midge's Big Swoon Reveal!



Heather at Quilts in the Queue shared this sweet baby quilt!


Your turn!  Time to share what you've been up to this week!

Here are the guidelines!

1.  You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post to make it easier for others.
3. Spread the word and post my button or a text link. (the NTT button is on my sidebar or at the 
    top of this post)
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!

  2. Love your new blog layout! Mind me asking how you did it? I've been trying to figure out where to start (especially header-wise). Great features - off to visit the blogs!

  3. Hi Kelly, because of my bad english I am not sure to understand everything but I can tell you how much I appreciate your blog, ideas and recently your 4 memory quilts made with your grandfather's shirts. What a lovely idea for your family ! and what great styles
    I don't know if you want to meet my blog... if so, it's french written of course as I am French, and if I work on quilts it's very slowly because I piece, appliqué and quilt by hand. My blog's name is : Etsijevousdisais.over-blog.com (the translation would be "so, let me tell you"
    If you are interested it will help you know who I am. Since now I shared my blog only with my daughter and a friend of mine. Friendly yours. Marie

  8. Yep looks awesome! I noticed earlier this week when my sidebar went wonky. Sure would have been nice if photobucket just let your replace the image with the new one with the same name, right? :)
