Block in a Bag

Way back on this post - I talked about joining the Block in A Bag Group. Wow - that was nearly a whole year ago. How time flies.
So now in the above slide show - you can see the blocks I received. Honestly - they are so beautiful - I just sit and look at them...and then wonder - what next? Combine them all into one quilt - wallhanging? Combine some and let some be their own mini wallhanging? Make each one a separate mini wallhanging?
What to do - what to do???
Everyone who participated really got blocks that were beautiful - but I think my tropical theme got the widest variety of blocks - and in my opinion - the most beautiful. Maybe its just because they are mine?
Regardless - isn't it amazing what you can get when you give each person a selection of fabric and a theme?

It isn't much

But it is probably all the snow we will get - - maybe for the entire winter....But here where no one knows what to do with snow- it was enough to cancel all the area schools and many businesses.

Another Done.

Calendar Mini Quilts

My friend Denise had once created these mini quilts for each month, and was kind enough to share the patterns with me....ok, so it was many years ago....many many....
So I finished January and February today.
Now I need some ideas for March. Not too keen on the pattern for March or April.

Finished the Baby Quilt top

This is a baby quilt for my friend's daughter-in-law. Was quite hesitant about making this one - her fabric choices were my concern....but we had cut this out for her first pregnancy which unfortunately was a baby she lost. She really wanted the same fabric for this pregnancy - so I went ahead and constructed. She has mixed in Minkee fabric with the blocks - and really wants the Minkee as the back. With SO much stretch in this fabric - I am concerned about how this will quilt out....
Any suggestions?? Has anyone mixed cottons and Minkee or used it as a quilt back?

Happy New Year!

Stitch stitch stitch...

I finished the rooster block for my friend just in time...she came to visit tonight!
I finished the fleece blanket with appliqued name and snowflakes for son's girlfriend just in time for her return from New York.
I finished quilting the Christmas wallhanging and just have to bind the edges.

Progress - -progress!!
