Sometime this past week I realized that I needed to make a baby quilt. In fact I realized that I currently need to make three: DH wants one for a student he is exceptionally proud of and there are two pregnant women in our family. So here is the start of baby quilt #1. The white tumblers are part of the group I “found” when routing in my white fabric stash: I do not remember cutting them.
The bear fabric has been in my stash for ages and I cut up all I had. This is as big as this quilt can get.
I did start sewing these together but it was late Sunday afternoon so I didn’t get very far.
I do plan to do some fabric shopping later this week for backing for this little quilt and for the two others.
I have decided to start another new project, a table runner designed by Esther Aliu. She designs wonderful applique quilts but they are way beyond my abilities so I was excited when she offered her yahoo group a table runner for Easter. Of course it is way past Easter but I think I can do this one so I have kind of started. I am going to work slowly on this but it should show up every once in a while.
This is a picture of our house. Look closely, through our trees, and you can see it. I am showing this because Saturday evening no where looked so good.
Saturday afternoon DH and I went to Pensacola (120 miles) to check out a couple of antique malls, looking for small acrylic shelving (no luck). We had a great afternoon and got home around 7pm. However, upon getting out of the car I realized that I didn’t have my purse. We decided that I had left it at a frozen yogurt shop way back in FL. I called and they had found my purse so we jumped in the car and again headed toward the Gulf coast. We finally got home, to stay, a little after midnight and even in the dark, our home never looked better. Nothing like a little excitement to spice up life, huh?
Linking with Patchwork Times for great quilting inspiration.
