Balance!! That's what I'm in the middle of…trying to balance it all!

Oh boy, I'm so thankful for this coming week's holiday!! (see what I did there?)

Because of this holiday week, I've had a little bit more time to craft! Yay!!

But before I show what I've been working on, I have to show you my mini quilt for the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap!

Remember how I got this fabulous quilt from Tina?

I had read that Synnove really likes vintage buttons, and I had just gotten a bunch at Round Top. I love to share!! ♥

I was sifting through fabric last night and tried to begin to organize what I had! eeeek!! I need a new system. I'm gonna have to figure it all out for sure!!

I love fabrics, though! And I'm really looking forward to using different lines together for a fun pop of fresh modern feel in my quilts! Color is so refreshing!! 🙂

Especially that red and teal!! 

What are you inspired by today???
