Size Matters - Day 5 - Kate Spain, Me & My Sister

And That's what happens when you don't read things all the way through.  Yesterday morning I got an "error" message when I was posting.  I thought it just hadn't saved the top part so I typed it again, but later I saw that it didn't save the bottom of the post either.

Here's what didn't post until late yesterday afternoon.

What it should have said was...........

"Now let hop on over and see what Deb and Barbara and V& Co. are up to.  Something interesting I'm sure.....and lucrative if you like fabric.:).  Just love the Moda give-aways."  
  Sorry ladies...... the computer ate my homework. 

Now for today - which will go a little more smoothly, I hope.

This is Cityscape, one of my favorite quilts this year.  (Of course, I kind of say that about them all :).)
Our youngest son Max lives in midtown Kansas City, Missouri - the Westport district - with his fiance Valerie and two of his sons Quinn & Cullen.  Westport is kind of the "arts" district of Kansas City and has lots of interesting shops and places to eat.

The sidewalks are lined with square areas of red mulch and round black metal grates with trees growing out of the center of them.  Stars are much easier than trees.  

And I'm not a botanist so I don't know what kind of trees they are but there are these round balls growing on them that have spikes all over them.  They're really neat looking.  I always pick some up to scatter on the farm but so far none have grown here.  Ah well.

Anyway, I do like the quilt and Lori did an awesome job of quilting it as usual.

And it's just the right size for their beds.  I'd say I'll have to make another one

but probably not until they're older.  Right now they'd probably rather have a Halo or Pokemon quilt.
That's not happening soon, believe me, especially Halo.  Maybe dinosaurs though.
Anyway, if you want the pattern or kit for the quilt you can get one by clicking here.  
(Max & Valerie will probably hang it on the wall.  Their house is older and has 12 foot ceiling so it would look great.)

The quilt kit on special today is Pumpkin Man.

And here is a picture of Cullen - the original pumpkin man - quite a few years ago. (His daddy always called him "baby big head") 

It's a good thing he doesn't read my blog or grandma might be in trouble. :)

Here he is this summer doing his Blue's Brothers imitation.  Isn't he great?  Don't I sound like a grandma?  My babies are growing up.

Enough of this foolishness.  Let's get hopping.  Let's run over and see what Kate Spain has been up to and what goodies she has to give away.  And of course, Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister are ALWAYS entertaining.  Love you ladies.

And don't forget to come back here on Friday for the next tutorial and a new give-away.


  1. Love the new quilt design, really nice piece for the holidays.
    I will be working on finishing my scarecrow piece, a bit of you and I in the design;)


  2. Het was weer een gezellige blog en dank je voor de ontwerpen. Groetjes Wilma

  3. Can you reed what I wrote in Dutch with the translator? Hugs Wilma

  4. With the help of Google translate - otherwise not so much.

    It was a nice blog and thank you for the designs. Greetings Wilma

    Thank you. Jan

  5. The new pattern is awsome and the little one pics are very fun.

  6. I used to live near the Westport area that you are referring to and so enjoyed the place. My grand kids are big, yours are still small...size does matter, they are easier to hug and cuddle when they are small. lol
    Love your quilt!

    1. I know and they're growing up so quickly. I keep telling them to slow down but they ignore me.

  7. Neither stars, nor trees, nor circles scare me now -- thanks to your series with Jenny and MSQC. Thanks for teaching me virtually, pretty cool stuff since I live in CA.

    1. I'm glad I could help. Jenny and I do have fun when we get together.

  8. The trees are probably plane trees:
