Today I have a darling Baby Cakes quilt to show you that I started a year ago! I had all of the blocks finished and all I had to do is put it together and add the border and I kind of forgot all about it, until I was cleaning my sewing room a while back! I’ll bet that none of you ever do that…right? Continue reading
Yesterday I mentioned that my daughter was making some things for her new house. Well of course she wanted new bedding and bedroom decor for the kids, so we got busy making some quilts. For her son’s room…she is doing it in super hero’s and the colors are the bright primary colors, so she decided that the quilt needed to be in those colors but with a simple pattern so as not to be too busy with the other decor. This is what she came up with and I think that it is perfect! Continue reading
We had another baptism in our family this last weekend! It was number five out of ten grandchildren…so far…hopefully we have a few more babies still to come!
With all of my recuperating time from my accident and now with summer coming to an end really quick (the kids start back to school next week!) I did not get to my usual sewing classes for all the granddaughters. But I decided that I would do a class with my oldest granddaughter because she is now old enough to do most of it on her own! Eight years old is a great time to start your little ones sewing, because they are so excited about it and they are getting the coordination that is needed to run the foot pedal and guide the fabric at the same time!
I finally got my “Block of the Month Quilt”, quilted and the binding on! Yahoo! Continue reading
I am so happy to announce that it is Christmas in May!?
I decided right after Christmas last year that I was going to make these two quilts for gifts for this year. I went out and got the fabric last January and I have slowly been working on them during some of our weekend trips up to our cabin, and they are now finished and I can put them away until Christmas!

I have another quilt post today! :)
Here is the quilt that my daughter made for her daughter. She sewed this quilt top several months ago and we just needed to add the outside borders to make it a little bigger, then I quilted it for her and sewed on the binding, because she said the binding would take her another month to do! She exaggerates!
Here is one of the quilts that I have been working on this past couple of weeks!
I was a little bit worried about how this quilt would really turn out because I bought some of the fabric at a quilt show that I went to and after getting part way done with sewing the quilt, I realized that I had only gotten 1/2 as much fabric as what I needed! So I went to my fabric stash and got enough to sew about 3/4 of the quilt and then I had to go buy the rest of the fabric! So this is really a mismatched quilt, but I actually like how it turned out!
