Modern Monday Makings

Hey y'all!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We did.  Friday night we drove about an hour to go to watch our high school football team play.  I'm sure to many that sounds crazy, but in a rural area, especially in the south, football is so important, and communities really rally around the boys.  It's pride in who you are and who you're with.  Pride in your hometown.
  Then Saturday the kids went with Grandma and Chris and I went to a Gator game with some friends.  I hadn't been to a home football game since I was pregnant with Oren and he's 6!  It was HOT and I got a little too much sun (Chris called me Lobster all day Sunday), but we had a lot of fun.  It's always fun to go back to your college and see what is the same and what has changed...

  But yesterday I had some downtime since the kiddos were still with Grandma and I got busy sewing!  And I just about finished up my latest quilt.  I can't show too much yet, 'cause it's a gift, but here are a few sneak peeks for you.

   All I've got left is about 5 inches of binding to sew down and then a quick wash and dry and this baby is ready to send.

I really like this one and I'm hoping the recipient does too...

And since it's Monday, I'm linking up with Megan and her Sew Modern Monday party.  Head over and check out what everyone else is up to as well.


  1. I love the colors on the quilt, so bright, fresh, and vibrant!

  2. The sneak peek looks great! I too really like the colours.

  3. Such fun looking colours! I hope the reveal is soon =D

  4. It looks beautiful. Loving the orange.

  5. Oh man, you've got to love high school football in the south. I have so many fun memories of going to ball games all around Tennessee! I love the little peek of the baby quilt and I'm pretty sure the recipient will love it, too!


I'd love to hear from you, so let me know...whaddya think!
