Opening Day, I love it! A great quilt for December.

Glad you and Sophie and getting on famously.


I love Opening Day!!It's 9 degrees Celsius and windy outside this morning and I'm really wishing I could stay home and make a pot of soup and sew today (I might even bake some buns) I know its not easy to eat properly on your own but you're right, you're worth it!


Both quilts look fantastic, nice work! Sounds like you and Sophie are enjoying yourselves :-)

Opening Day is very pretty...I own a Statler and would like to know what E2E pattern/designer was used to quilt your quilt. I like that motif alot.


Yes, you're worth it - look at last week as being a lead in to a new life style. Whenever my husband was away on an extended contract overseas I tended to gorge on junk food the first week or so and then settled into a more healthy routine usually managing to drop a couple of pounds in the process.
The quilts are gorgeous.

The quilts look fabulous! I'm working on my Schnibbles and am using the Fit to be Geese method (don't have the ruler yet) and I'm loving how accurate the geese are turning out. It will go much faster after I get the ruler to trim down to size. At last a method to get those beautiful flying geese into a quilt without losing my mind!

Both quilts are stunning! You did an awesome job with colours and technique! Well done! Love them! Have a great day!


They are both just beautiful :) I like the top one, the Roman Holiday fabric is one of my favorites. I am glad you survived from the other night *ouch* Have a good week!

Opening Day is a great pattern. I really like the half-sawtooth stars around the border. And the bright vibrant colors against the white are so crisp and clean. Enjoy it this December!


Love your quilts! I have the pattern for Opening Day and am now motivated to make it! But I am waiting for my Fit to Be Geese ruler to come in the mail, so will just sit tight until it comes, as it sounds like it will make life much easier.

Opening Day is one of my all-time favorites! I loved it even more when it came back from the quilter. I'm sure she will do a fabulous job on your Summer Wind quilt, too - can't wait to see that.

Both quilts are amazing!!
Yes, you are worth spending time cooking a good meal! I have needed to tell my daughter that lately too.


I dearly love that quilt using Roman Holiday. I just want to kick myself for not buying that fabric when it was out. I am going to order one of those handy dandy rulers though! That in itself will make life so much easier. Have a good week Nicole and little Sophie too!


I forgot to tell you that I have the second one started that you did above with the same fabric but it's another project put to the wayside.

Both quilts are beautifull. I just did winter white in roman holiday.


Beautiful quilt! I bought this pattern because I loved yours so much. I have so much free time since the passing of my 29 year old daughter in July :( but I can't get my mojo up and going. I love your blog and can't wait to see what you come up with next. I am thinking about beginning my own blog about quilting, baking, gardening and decorating. I sometimes don't know what to do with myself. I was with my daughter and cared for her 24/7. I feel like I need a new outlet and maybe blogging is the answer. There are so many great people out here in the blogging world.
Thanks for the inspiration! Maybe you can give me some tips!

I just love Carrie Nelson quilts! I featured one today on my blog. I have a little stash of Roman Holiday, and this gives me a push to get it out and use it up in a Miss Rosie quilt!

Karen Beigh

Miss Rosie patterns always make great quilts.

Susan Ramey Cleveland

The quilts are lovely.


Both quilts are drop dead gorgeous! You are very talented. Of course you are worth the extra effort of a home cooked meal! How else will you keep your strength up to crank out all of these amazing quilts!

Cathy McMann

Congratulations on another gorgeous finish. And I know what you mean about the fast food - a weakness of mine when I'm on my own too.


Wow I love these quilts. The color combination is fabulous. I also love Miss Rosie's patterns :-)

Both quilts are lovely. Enjoy yourself while you can.
Hugs Mary.


Wow, those quilts are stunning! Were they time consuming to make? They look it!

My hubby is out of town this week, I had zucchini soup for dinner. It's fall weather here, good soup weather.

I hope you and Sophie have a relaxing and healthy week.

Audrey Bretz

Are both of these quilts square??? I am looking for a new project for my new bundle (Blessings by Moda)and I think either one would be great for this bundle.
