Pedal to the Metal

We have a special birthday here today. My daughter turns 16! I certainly hope she is NOT putting her foot down when she gets behind the wheel. This mama is a very nervous passenger. Any tips to handle the stress of babies getting more independent?!?

In the quilt studio, things are going the other direction by getting smaller, not bigger. I am working on the Island Batik Ambassador project for August – Marvelous Minis. Here are some of the tiny strips:

Those little bits are turning into lovely 6″ log cabin blocks. I am paper piecing them in several different color combinations.

You’ll have to stay tuned to see the final layout, I hope to finish it this weekend.

Check out this post for some log cabin inspiration.

  1. Hi Andi, thanks for hosting Put Your Foot Down. Those are cute log cabin blocks. Good luck with your independent teen – just take deep breaths and trust her đŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for visiting! Yes, deep breaths help. She generally makes good decisions so I’m not too worried. Once she takes herself to practices, I will have more quilting time, so that’s a plus!!

  2. This was indeed a perfect day for Put your foot down. Happy birthday to your daughter and wishing you luck on her driving, that is always scary. My son is 26 and it still scares the heck out of me. He’s a volunteer fireman and when I hear sirens and know he is not working his full time job I get really nervous. He likes putting his foot down too. Thanks again Andi, cant wait to see your log cabin.
