I am a proud grandma, kind of; our neighbour gave us some fertilized eggs and
one of our chickens decided she wanted to be a mommy. So, now we have
2 baby chicks. They are so cute!
This is the first baby chick,you can tell by how wet she is that she has just
This is the second baby chick; she is all dry and fluffy. It is amazing to see
how instinct tells these little ones what to do. As soon as they hatch from the
egg, they crawl under the mommy and within 1/2 hour, they are totally dry and
fluffy. We are having such a blast just watching them and their antics.
On to more baby stuff.
This is the last of 3 baby quilts that I am making for a fundraiser at my church.
I bought the panel at Fabricland; I am glad that they are done, and on time.
This is the backing fabric. It is silk and I have no idea where I picked this
up. I also managed to finish another quilted panel for a friend.
This is a design by Al Cote and I just followed his pattern. You should
check him out; he is a very talented Canadian Fibre Artist.
In the green outer border, I quilted in arcs, after Cindy Needham‘s style. It dresses
it up somewhat. It took me 2 hours to quilt in this small section.
In the yellow outer border, I quilted in straight lines. The fabric is a print so
it won’t show any of the quilting anyways, so why spend alot of time in that
area. Even though it is a small area, it still takes time to do detailed quilting.
The backing of the quilted wallhanging. I was trying to use up some
fabric so thus the reason for the sunflowers on the back of this wallhanging.
Eleanor is slowly finishing up all of her large quilts before she moves to
We used “Blossoms” for the overall design and we used a light
brown polyester thread for the top and the backing.
You can really see the design in the triangle section.
The backing is a brown color and blends well with the top.
Here is another quilt by Eleanor.
The fabrics in this quilt are alot of fun. “Fairy Wings” is the
name of the overall design used. A light blue So Fine polyester
thread was used for the top and the backing.
Here you can see the design used.
How can you not love cats?
The backing is a deep blue.
The quilting design shows up nicely on the backing.
