Current Projects

 I am in a slight panic mode about sewing.
I have been in a slump since my return from NC.
I finally went into my room yesterday and did some cleanup.
I wanted to make some new burp cloths for Little Miss.

Here is what I came up with.

I actually made 5 of each Cats, rainbows and unicorns.
I did use different backs on some of them.
I figured out that I can get 5 fronts or backs out of 1/2 yard of fabric.

My son asked me to make a Spartan quilt for a friend of his that was expecting a first baby.
His friend and wife attended MSU and are now living in Ann Arbor.
So my son said that baby needs to have to proper alliance.
He needs to be a Spartan, not root for the "other" team.
I found a pattern I thought would make a great baby quilt.
It is called BQ2.
The blocks finish at 9"
This was a very quick make.
I cut it out and sewed it all in one day!!
I happened to have some Spartan flannel in my stash for the back.
Winner winner chicken dinner!!

My quilter is dropping off LOTS of quilts tomorrow.
I will give her this one when she drops off.

What have you all been working on??

Our Time In NC

 The month we spent in NC was a good one.
We will miss our daughter's family, and the good weather, but it will be good to be home.

Some highlights from the trip (since my last post)
We saw deer a lot in our campground.
This one and his friend were behind our camper!

We helped with the gardening

Stopped at 2 quilt shops

Went to the science center butterfly exhibit.
Made my hair wilt, LOL

Walked all around the outside exhibits

Ate some Superman ice cream (someone's first time)

Went to the antique festival in Liberty.
Lots of great sewing stuff.

Broke out my machine and had LOTS of help

I finished all 24 of my Sparrows for the Sparrows quilt.
