Here's the scoop

Our New Beginnings theme was Here's the Scoop.

 The refreshment table.  All things pink and brown.

 Rice Krispy treat cones.

 Our New Beehives
 Tissue paper arrangement.  I was going for an ice cream sundae look but turned out more like a flower.

Deja Vu Quilt

After making Derek's college quilt, I had enough blocks leftover to make a lap quilt.

I decided that since it was a scrap quilt I would quilt it myself.  I really like this chevron fabric, but oh what a challenge to quilt.  Each row took about 15 min, with having to rotate the quilt every 1 1/2 inches.  
I was going to quilt on the blue stripe but the way the chevron met in the middle just made more sense for spacing to do the white.
I'm happy to have it done.  It's not my favorite mostly because I pulled my favorite block combinations for Derek's quilt and was left with my not favorites.  It will still be a great TV quilt.
