Projects, finishes and news

9.26.2011

A sneak peek at a baby quilt I started for a dear friend of mine who is expecting baby number 5. She is having a boy, however, her only daughter is convinced she is having a sister. =)


I only have 1 1/2 rows done out of 10 in the pinwheel quilt and have put in at least ten hours already. It's a bit overwhelming, so I am only working on it in spurts here and there. 


I had several HST left over from the tulip quilts, so I played around with them and came up with these blocks. I have no plans for them yet. I think they are cute. =)


The baby quilt got finished. I love split 9 patches...

All wrapped up in a bow with a rattle, ready to be delivered. 


Oh....One more small thing. 

I have a new grandchild! My first grandson Lucas was born yesterday. I can't wait to meet him. =)

  9. A grandson! Congratulations! Now I know why you were "practicing" last week!
    Love the baby quilt - and the backing is so fun!
    I love Lily and Will - I did a quilt with the blue and brown colour combo... I'm wondering what the brown fabric is though. Hopefully a new quilt will be a consolation for not getting a baby sister....! Hope all goes well for your friend and her babe.
