diamond jack: the grand finale

my sister had her baby last week, and i hopped a plane to texas to see my new nephew over the long president's day weekend. i gave him all the things i've been making over the past few months, and i'm positive he was impressed, mistakes and all!

here's his namesake quilt.

i quilted with bright red thread in long diagonal lines.

and the back. 

as you may (or may not!) have noticed, i haven't been as webily active as i was a couple of months ago. i've found it pretty hard to balance work, dinner, friends, projects, traveling,! i mean, it's an effort to put time into everything as it is, toss in a 40+ hour quilting project and blogging about it, and i'm toast.

but i'm trying to get better. and being part of a community helps motivate me, so thanks to all of you out there who prove to be constant sources of encouragement and inspiration.


  1. Kim, your quilt came out great!
    So glad you got to give it to your new newphew in person.

  2. Congrats Auntie KIM!!
    Life gets in the way of sewing, doesn't it? ;-)
    talk soon.
