I Did Cartwheels Down the Stairs...

NO! NO! Don't panic...I really didn't...but that is what I told Mr. Brown Quilts when I came flying downstairs and found him outside...I made him stop what he was doing...and turned him into Mr. Quiltholder...here's what I was so excited about...My Between Charming Friends top is done...YIPPEE! I love it...thank you again Darlene for designing this wonderful quilt and to Kelly for challenging us to do these little blocks. Now I need to start the quilt for Twin #2...but it will have to wait a few days...I have some other things in the works.

I have to share this sweet picture...A very happy dad with his girl!

It's beautiful. Our misters are terrific quilt holders! That little cutie is a daddy's girl.

OMG, look how big Miss Camden has gotten. She's adorable! Sweet picture, Carol.

I love your Between Charming Friends quilt - it's darling! I'm glad you enjoyed making it (with all those tiny pieces - LOL)

Dandelion Quilts said...

Very pretty! Have you ever heard the book Silly Sally? I just read it to my little one the other night and your title reminds me of that. LOL. Glad you didn't fall down the stairs.

Okay, the big one is on my list but now I'm going to add a little star next to it.

It's big & beautiful! (like me! LOL!)

Carol said...

It's awesome Carol. I like how you did the border, perfect. Good thing you didn't really do cartwheels down the stairs, but I'm sure you're doing the happy dance that this quilt top is done. Cute picture too.

Jean said...

Between Friends is just wonderful! It's a wonderful pattern.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Carol, your BCF Quilt is beautiful. I did the smaller version. It was the first 'little quilt' I have ever made and now I am wanting to Schnibble, LOL. Also, I was noticing in your last post that you had started stitching "Nice People, Nice Things"...I started mine day before yesterday!!! Aren't they the cutest patterns? I started with the Cup of Tea block and like you, I get better as I go along. I used to do all sorts of truly fancy and elegant needlework and crochet doilies but 'life happened' and due to health issues I lost some of the feeling and coordination in my hands. I have been piecing quilts on my machine but I wanted to hand stitch something sooo bad that I just tried some simple embroidery patterns a couple of weeks ago and did fair. When I saw some of the NPNT blocks stitched up on Kelly's Charming Chatter blog I absolutely had to have them. If you can believe, after searching all over the internet and finally sending an email to the designer Helen Stubbings, I actually found a set at a shop right here in Utah. My DH drove me 120 miles round trip to get them! I'm diving in! I'm slow, but oh how I'm enjoying them. Well, I've rambled enough, I'll let you go do some stitching. By the way, that is and adorable picture of 'dad and his little girl', what a sweetie!

Wooo hooo, done is good! Very pretty. And I always love seeing the grand darlin's.

I am so in love with your between friends! I just never thought of doing it in 30's and it is so perfect! Obviously I"ve been a mother of 4 messy kids - while I loved the picture of dad and his little girl all I could think of was - I could NEVER have a white couch in my house!

Mary said...

I love the between friends quilt.. WHat size are the 16 patch blocks. It is so pretty in 30's repros

Loris said...

Beautiful, sweet and happy!

Allie said...

I can see why you thought about cartwheels, lol - that's fantastic! Love the pic of daddy and his girl, too, so sweet!

Quilts and Cats said...

I agree with everyone! The quilt is fantastic...the color is so beautiful and I'm sure alot of work went into it.
I have a Mr. Quiltholder, too! They come in handy.

Thelma said...

The border is perfect, I just love this quilt. Wonderful job!

Dads and daughters, a winning combination.

Sue said...

Wow! That's a beautiful quilt and I can see why you would want to do cartwheels over it! Really, really sweet.

Love the picture of dad and daughter:)

Karen said...

wonderful BCF finish, Carol, but as beautiful as the quilt is the picture of daddy and his little girl warms my heart even more!!

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

Yaaayy!! Congratulations! That's one gorgeous quilt.

It looks like you made a larger version! It's beautiful!!!

Your little sweeties look so cute Carol. And the quilt top is perfect. I LOVE the fabrics you chose!

Patchwork Penguin said...

You are not going to believe this.... but your reply to my previous comment went into my spam folder and I deleted it before I realized it.

I do apologize, and if you have a minute to reply again about the pattern, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

Your title made my heart stop for a minute but then I realized you had typed the message so you had to be ok. Paralysis is on my mind these days. (I will e-mail you)
I love the quilt and the sweetie is adorable.. Oh and dad too!

Oh goodness! What a beautiful quilt!

This is a charming quilt. The pieces are SEW tiny and that requires much patience.

It is true:
