Works in progress

I have been a busy busy beaver! I made this Winnie the Pooh top today. I work with a man who's wife is expecting their first baby. They are decorating the nursery in WTP. So I just whipped this up! They know that they are having a girl, hence the pink and purple. I found a fabulous orange dot flannel for the back too. I even managed to piece it so I could use it. Every bit of this quilt was made using stash fabric, even the batting and the backing. I was really happy about that. Not much of the purple and the orange left that I used for the borders.

The next picture if of some focus fabric I felt compelled to buy recently. I had no idea why but I know now. I was invited to a baby shower last weekend but was unable to attend. A friend is adopting a 2 year old boy sometime in August. I think this will make the perfect little boy quilt, don't you? I got the coordinating dot too. I *think* I may make focus squares of the bear fabric and then using the dots make nine patches to go around those. I have a lot of the colours from the bear fabric to use in the nine patch. I'm not certain yet. I will look through some old magazines and books tonight to try to make a plan.

Those pesky "M"s are still waiting to be appliqued and the rest of the stars and rails cut for that U of M quilt, but starting a new project is so much more fun!

Oh my gosh, you don't have to be a 2 year old boy to love that fabric. I am a 49 year old lady and I certainly would have bought it too. It is just to cute.

Great quilts, great ideas! I love, love, love that bear fabric. Please give me more identifying info. on that piece, if it's in the selvedge... manufacturer? Fabric line? It's fantastic, I would have bought it if I'd run across it too.

Love that bear fabric. It will be perfect!

I liked the Jack story. Too bad the other cats don't like him. Poor guy.
