First Quilt of 2017 and Kitchen Update

January 6, 2017

Good Morning and Happy 2017! 

One major goal my hubby and I have this new year is to get this kitchen completely finished and we are so close! Over the holidays, Russ got the backsplash installed. All that needs to be done is the grout. We are going to use a light grey colored grout.

Here is the big picture of how the kitchen looks. So close to being done! 

My first quilt of 2017 is for baby Millie. Millie's daddy is a cat person and I fell in love with Erin Michael's new fabric line for Moda called Meow or Never. I was so glad to have an excuse to play with it!  It's perfect for her and I think her daddy will appreciate it, too. =) 

I quilted it with my go to wavy lines. I like the texture it gives and its easy. =)  I get to give it to her today! 

Until next time, have a happy weekend!!

  6. WOWOWOW Amy, your kitchen is so classy and snazzy.
    I still have corian hahaha
    I love the quilt with the kitties.
    I love kitties, well, my kittie Pierro. He was only 8.5 and died in November. It was terrible and I did a lot of sobbing.
    The fabrics in this quilt are just adorable. Perfect quilt!!
    Happy New Year and happy week-end Amy

  7. Your kitchen looks wonderful, you will enjoy such a cheerful space. I love the fabrics in your quilt and the quilt itself of course. I just finished packing away Christmas decorations and hope to get to a little stitching later. Happy new year.

  8. Your kitchen is looking amazing and I love your baby quilt!

  9. Glad to see that the marathon kitchen update is almost done!
    Love Millie's quilt! So glad that you get to present it in person!

  10. Your quilt is adorable and thanks for letting us know that you used Moda fabric. I have a granddaughter that loves cats, so that might be a great choice for her. As for your kitchen . . . I love white kitchens and yours is beautiful! Ours is a vintage kitchen with cupboards built in the 1930's or 40's . . . whenever they decided to put running water into this old house. I have the top cupboards all painted white and the under counter cupboards painted turquoise, but I'm thinking seriously of painting it all white. Love the subway tile . . . and the big window over the sink.
    Have a wonderful week.
    Your blogging sister,
    Connie :)
