Slack Blogger

I have been slack blogging but I have been busy quilting. First off I started with a birthday present for my sister. I made her a sewing bag, pin cushion, needle holder, and bought her a clover needle holder.

Finished a quilt for my friends baby, but I will have to show you later as she comes by and I dont want to spoil the surprise.

I have been making tissue holders (100 of them) some for a friend who was having a ladies pamper night, playgroup fundraiser and some for gifts. They are very quick to make and addictive.

I have also started Tis the Season quilt. I have seen it around a lot of blogs and thought why not, so i'm making 2.

I have also been working on a UFO, so pictures of that in the next few days (promise)

So you see I have been busy. See you soon

Easter Sewing

No sew blanket

Over Easter I managed to get a few projects done. This is a no sew blanket using polar fleece.

Moda Lawn Chair quilt

This quilt can be put together in a few nights using scraps,width of fabrics or the original pattern is using a jelly roll. I used the scraps from the other red and white quilts that I had made earlier.

Two baby quilts using the same fabric just changed the inside border.

With quite a few babies coming this year I thought I would get a head start. Now I have to wait till my quilter can fit me in.
