Back Among The Living, Feathering The Nest and My First Blog GIVEAWAY!!

Well...I think I'm going to make it! Thanks for everyone's suggestions on cold remedies. I have been out of the office the past two days....sleeping it seems. I HATE being away from the office and 'wasting' the days by sleeping! UGH! But it's obviously what I needed. I'm on the mend. :o)

This evening I wandered downstairs and finished piecing the Nest quilt....that great line of fabric from Moda. Nest. You might remember I purchased a bunch of sets of the 5" cut squares from that line. The fabrics just spoke to me in way.....they kept saying, "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha"...and all's I could think of was the Brady Bunch while I was sewing! And That 70s Show! I loved it! Nothing fancy...just pieced the squares all together for a really 70s patchwork look!

And I think I have the PERFECT backing in the stash! Look how great this Heather Bailey Pop Garden print looks! Perfecto mod 70s quilt!

I think it'll be a great casual summer quilt!

Would you like a jump start on your own Nest quilt? Thought I'd try my first every blog giveaway! Nothing major....but a great little stash of the Moda 5" Charm Squares from the Nest line!

We won't get complicated here...just leave a comment, let all your friends know, and I'll draw a winner on Sunday.

Tis good to be back among the living! :o)

I'm in love with your quilt! I'm so very retro, love the 70s. My biggest 70s memory, I had a tshirt that I wore almost everyday one summer that said, "Conserve water bath with a friend" what were my parents thinking? LOL....

Glad you're feeling better.
