Cute Babies

Last Wednesday at our Bee I was working on these "Cute Babies" blocks. I had ironed all the fabrics down and at the meeting I started the machine applique. They are so darn cute! I love the oversized rattle and pacifier and diaper pin.

Here is the finished quilt top. Don't know what the white fabric was but as I ironed it the fabric crinkled and stretched and became a real mess. I tried pressing with a damp cloth but whatever that fabric is I won't be using it again. I think once it is quilted it will look o.k. tho. I don't know if you can see but there are french knots for little belly buttons. I worried about what to do for the eyes but I think the french knots look good there too.


Here are a couple more of the seasonal skinnies from our Strip club. They go together so quickly. These are small enough that I know I can machine quilt them....someday.


I have also put the binding on a quilt for my friend, Janine. We have used this fabric now for about 4 quilts.

I love the french knots for eyes. They look great. That is an adorable quilt. I think we need to find a little girl one;)

The babies are so cute. And you always have such nice things to say to me on my blog. I appreciate your kindness. You seem like a very kind and generous person. I know you are blessed.
