back to sewing . . .

With lots of other things to do yesterday I went up in my sewing room last night and kept at it until I finished a quilt which I plan to give to my new granddaughter who is due at the end of June. The colors are bright and the back is soft, I used flannel so I think it should be useful. It was not the best job of having the corners of the squares meet but everytime I make another quilt I feel like I learn more.

Found out recently that my youngest son's girlfriend is pregnant. When they find out what they will be having I will be sewing for him/her I am sure, can't wait!

I still need to finish my quilt top from my attempt at Crazy Mom Quilts quilt along. Don't know if I will ever finish it at as a quilt, just would like to get the quilt top finished.

I am anxious to start sewing some purses, totes, supermarket bags, whatever I can attempt in that category. I can't fall asleep some nights thinking of all the things I'd like to try.

Sorry about the bad picture, shadows, etc.

What a pretty quilt. I love doing flannel quilts for little ones as they always seem so much more cozy.

I like the finished sampler. The colors look terrific together.

Hi Mom! Just checking your blog. You should post your gorgeous garden on here, the one at home and the one at the lake (once that one gets going).
