Baby Blankets

My good friend is having a little boy.

I have come to the part of a quilter's life where the baby is going to be born soon, and I am not finished with her quilt. I missed giving it to her at her baby shower. Doh! Now - I am working to get it done before she give birth. It's not like I can ask her to delay that. Hehehe.

I will have pictures once I have the tops finished. So excited to be working in blues, instead of pinks.

Hope that the world is a wacky and enjoyable place for you!

I am sorry to say that I have no pictures this week. But I am working on things. Little things. I have made three buckets for me - that are all the same color. Honestly - I already had the fabric.

I have sent one bucket to my cousin, just because. Now, my mom has requested a bucket.


I am going to make her one, and I found a pretty remnant at Joann's.

Don't worry - I will take pictures!

Have a great day! Hope that you are quilting away!

So - I have a lot of fabric. There was a sale for Black Friday at Joann's and I was a goner. I bought bolts of fabric. I know some of you know what I am talking about. Just a bonanza of fabric fun.

I decided that I was going to use fabric that I had to make some storage containers.

I am sorry that I disappeared for a while. Thanks for your patience with me!

Christmas presents

I finished all the quilts I needed to finish for the little people in my family to get one.
Here are the pictures!

Quilting up a Storm

I posted pictures of the finished quilting that I have done recently.

1. Cars and Trucks
2. Sailboats
3. Butterflies for Ariane
4. Owls for Bea
5. Caterpillar for JoJo

I am super happy with the quilting being done on these three and I was jazzed to try and get another quilt taken care of...when my power went out. For hours! So, apparently, I quilted up a storm and it stopped my quilting in my tracks. 

I am hoping to get back to these two this weekend. I know that I can do it and it doesn't have to be perfect!

Hope that you are having a great day!

I have jumped in and gotten quilting done!

This is the quilt for Ariane. I tried for a lot of movement in the quilting, to go with the butterflies.

Here is the Owl Quilt for Bea.

The quilting begins!

I have finished quilting the car quilt that I made. Nothing fancy - just stitch in the ditch.

 I don't want to have any quilting in the blocks themselves.

I think I am a minimalist when it comes to my own quilting. I like the quilting that others do...but I tend to cringe at my own. Perhaps that will change as I do more of it.

So - quilts to quilt:

1. Cars and Trucks
2. Sailboats
3. Butterflies for Ariane
4. Owls for Bea
5. Caterpillar for JoJo

These are all basted and ready to go. They are all Christmas presents, so I really need to get a move on.

It took me a few days of invading the dining room table, but I got it done!

Now....I need to pick a fabric for the binding.

I can do this.
