Good evening ladies,,, I hope your Memorial week end was a sunny and full of family fun.. I am so happy that we are having warm and sunny days. We had been getting so much rain, I was going to have a small lake in my back yard,,,, my grass really did some major growing too. Any way, I have so many things that I want to do,, but I just don’t have enough time, or hands. I am on the home stretch with the baby quilt, I did get a few photos to share with you…. The baby shower is coming up soon it is on Sat June 11… and I have tons of things to get done….wheeewwwww with my class at night for three hrs,, it is hard for me to get things done… oh well enough of that nonsense…
I am so behind on my blog again,,,, oops sorry girls,,, I do miss you all so much… so I am going to make time at least twice a week to do some visits to you all.. I can’t wait to see all the gorgeous summer decorating you are all doing… OK on with the quilt photos…
This is the finished top with out the borders on… I was so worried about all the fabrics coming together,,,, and I was so excited to see it just flow together…. wink,,,,
The browns and tans are a perfect match for the Nursery … I can’t wait to see it in there,,,, and don’t you worry I will be taking a lot of photos…. so show you…
Just a few close up shots so you can see the different fabrics… sewing all those 2 1/2 in strips together was not fun…. but it did come out pretty darn good,,, I forgot how many different fabrics I have,,, hmmmm should count them some time…. or maybe you would like to….. sort of like a jar filled with jelly beans and guess how many are in there…..ok got of track,,,, getting back on now…
I had to get a photo of it in the bassinet,,,still with out borders,,, it looks so pretty with it…. the colors are perfect……. yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh….. I am getting better at this ladies….
This is Little Guys bassinet,,,, I have it at my house I am hosting the shower… I can’t wait to see little guy in it….. not much longer,,, she is due July 15 but I think she will go early,, both of my kids were early so maybe she will take after me….
AWWWWWW don’t ya just love this little guy,,, he is so cute……………………………
Here are the three borders for the quilt,,and the binding..
Yeah!!!!!!! the borders are on,,,, not it is laying on my clean kitchen floor,, to start pining it all down…. my back is not going to happy with me later….
I like to use small safety pins, then hold better and I don’t get stuck all the time…..ouch…..
OK now I am ready to do some quilting…… OH NO,,,,, Iam out of white thread,,,, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…. the backing is a soft white flannel….I like to use white you don’t really see it much,, but you can still see the quilting part…. so I will have to run to Wally world and get some white sewing thread….. darn…… so I decided to do sewing on little stuffed pillows filled with my dried lavender,,, mmmmmmm I love the smell of lavender,,,, as a gift for every one for sharing in my Daughters big day… I have little boxes to decorate and and put in a scented tea light and yummy candy in side… does that sound good???
Here is the goodie boxes that I am giving away,,, and the fabric for the pillows… oh and Heathers little boy ribbon pin,,, I am going to make it look a lot better….
I love all these different pink fabrics,,, they are left over from another Quilt… so I did get them sewed before I left for class,,, so I am going to do some stuffing when I get done here…. I will be taking photos to show you all how every thing turned out….
Well my dear sweet blog friends,,, I hope you enjoyed my photos today and the photos,,,, I am so happy to back here with you all,, even though I don’t post as much….
