I'm Back!

So needless to say... I've been a bit busy the last couple of months.  Busy with life, and not so much quitling.  But, between vacations, school, horse stuff, weddings, selling our house, and just the crazy's of life, I have gotten a few projects done. 
In my last post, I had a project going that I couldn't say a whole lot about because it was a gift.  Well the gift has been given, so now I can show you.

 This is Winner's Boquet. 
I made this quilt for my sister-in-law Kristine and her new husband Luke as a wedding gift.
This quilt was a blast to make.  My first attempt at curves, so I had prepared myself for a challenge, but it was very easy. I found it a bit time consuming with all the pinning, but very simple to make.
I had a good time choosing all the batik fabric for this quilt. And it was also a lot of fun to quilt. A bit challenging because it filled my entire frame (I actually had to cut it down by 2 1/2" to get it to fit), but fun.
Kristine and Luke's wedding was the highlight of our fall.  It was beautiful, so much fun and we are so happy for them. The girls are especially glad to have a new Uncle Lukey (who they adore)! 
Here's the happy couple!

And that's us. 
Olivia and Allyson were beautiful flower girls, and had a great time getting to be princesses for a day!
I even got to dance with my Mr. Amazing! 
The last time I got to do dance with him was at our wedding 8 years ago. 
He only dances when he has to:(
Well, that's a little of what we have been up to. Can't wait to tell you more, but that will have to wait for another day.
