I hope that you had a great Christmas and I hope you have a Happy
New Year! It has been a while since my last post but I am back on
Here are several of the quilts I have been working on today.
Laura made these 2 baby quilts; she is expecting more
grandkids. What a great opportunity to make some cute
I used a white and light yellow polyester thread on this quilt.
Light stitching was the order of the day so I stitched around
all the shapes, including the stars, sheep, owl and elephant.
In the outer border, stars and loops were added.
I love the backing.
The words are carried over from the front of the quilt.
Here is the second baby quilt that Laura made. She covered
all of her bases by making a baby quilt for both a girl and a boy
I love the primary colors in this quilt.
I used a light blue and dark blue polyester thread for the
top and the backing.
Waves were stitched in all the pieced areas and in the border areas
as well. I thought that it worked with the entire quilt.
Here you can see the border area and the waves in it.
The backing was a blue flannel so it will be nice and
snuggly for the baby.
In keeping with the baby theme, I also know 2 ladies
who are each having girls. Instead of a quilt, I decided
that I wanted to crochet a baby blanket for them both.
I used a size 8 crochet hook and some really thick wool.
It was quite interesting when I was looking for a size 8
crochet hook. WalMart and Michael’s were both sold out
of that size crochet hook. Everyone must be crocheting
This pink wool had 3 different types of wool in it. It really works
up fast, another reason for me to crochet it instead of
The variegated wool is really thick and warm, especially for
this cold winter.
Here is the second baby afghan that I finished this
week. The pattern is kind of neat, in the middle of
the baby afghan.
Have a great week!
