Busy Weekend

It was a busy weekend!
I went to my Brother and Sister-in-law's on Friday night.   It is my niece Allison's birthday this week, so I took her over her birthday present.  I made her a quilt that she had sent me a picture of.
Allison, a pastry chef in training, was working on a commission...a PacMan/Rubix Cube cake.
Then Donna (s-i-l) and I headed down to Buffalo for Saturday.   We knew exactly where we were going, so we hit the border by 8:30 and we back at the border by 3:30.  I got some clothes and fabric for a Christmas quilt.
We did get pulled over at the border and had to pay Duty ... but it was still worth it!

I also made Christmas Cake ... just need to start pouring brandy on it!

PS.  Scarlett Burroughs featured Allison's quilt on http://quilting.craftgossip.com/ta-dah-birthday-quilt-for-allison/2011/11/21/


  1. LOVE Ally's quilt!!!
    I think you should use the scraps from your Christmas quilt to make a coordinating rag wreath like the one from the link in your previous post.

  2. Black cake is one of the new stuff in my blog tour. Totally new and really amazing work you did with quilt, that is totally new for me and I have 't added black colour in fabric work.

  3. What a fab quilt Sharon. Allison is lucky! I've featured this post on Craft Gossip here:
