    My first pattern was a recommended easy quick one, even though it took me days to make, as I was sooo sllooowww in sewing it. It was fun, anyway, and I'm obviously hooked.

    I had it LA quilted with coffee cups, as I'm a coffee lover to the max.

    The next one is the same pattern, but I made more recently. My husband asked me to make him a quilt he could take underway (he's a submariner) a week before he was to leave. I did it... I finished the binding about an hour before I had to drop him off.

    Really easy pattern, great for beginners... really fun to make!

    You did a great job! This addiction will overtake your life...and its so much FUN! What started as a "learning experiment" for me has turned into my own sewing room/studio and a passion.

    Welcome to the club!

    Another Turning Twenty (posted the first one here http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-34280-2.htm ), a batik for our bed, slowly collecting scraps for a scrappy triple irish chain, finishing up an applique quilt I did, working on my son's dinosaur applique quilt (posted a couple days ago)... uh...

    I guess having mutiple projects makes me a full blown quilter now, huh? ;)

    Your quilts are so pretty! I am a coffee drinker and love the coffe quilt. Is "Just Can't Cut It" the name of the pattern?

    Just Can't Cut It is indeed the pattern. It's by All Washed Up ( http://www.allwashedupquilts.com )

    Cute!
    Great job!
    Just make sure when you get that quilt back off the boat, you wash it 2 times and use TONS of fabric softener. For some reason, boat smell gets into it and doesn't want to let loose. I've found that Snuggle with Fabreeze (I think that's the one) works great!

    Thanks!

    Yeah, boat smell is just one of my *most favorite* smells ever (gag)... I hate trying to get that smell out of everything. Downy's Spice Blossom Dare seems to do the trick, and it smells sooo delicious. He was pretty proud of his new quilt last patrol :)

    Funny thing.....you'll miss that smell. Honest you will. You might say I'm nutz right now, but I do miss boat smell. Ok, maybe I am nutz.....but I've been doing the "canoe club" for about 24 years. Done both fast attacks and tridents, but prefer him on FAs....more portcalls! lol

    We haven't done FAs yet, and I'm not sure we will - he's an FT, and I don't believe they have any need for FTs on FAs... just the USS Nebraska (trident) so far. We just started year 6 on this boat (hoping to get shore duty here, at home, instead of moving for a couple years).

    They are both great quilts. I like the coffee one....the colors and coffee print pop right out. I like your floor mat too. I have to confess I'm a tea drinker....never did like coffee. I'd love to have a 'tea' mat for the floor area near the kitchen sink.

    love them
    The 'just can't cut it' pattern is sooo easy. I have made two and they do go together fast.
