The future "lost" quilt

This quilt was made by my friend, Janine. I hand stitched the binding on this week. Isn't this a gorgeous quilt! I love the turquoise and brown combination. I have warned her that this one might get "lost" in my house.
Last week my sister, Jeanie, called and said she had seen a "Cute Babies" quilt on my blog. She asked if it was hard to make, how long it would take etc. I thought she might want the pattern and make one herself. After I assured her that it wasn't hard at all she asked if I would make one for her great grandson that will be born in June. My sister is almost 5 years older than me so growing up I was kind of her tag along and probably in her way more than anything. But over these past few years we have spent a lot of time together and she has done so much for me and we have grown so close.....how could I ever say no. I assured her I had plenty of fabric (what quilter doesn't have plenty of fabric???) to make it without having to buy a thing. So here it is ready for the quilter. I love this quilt and may have to make a pink one next.
I have all the cream squares cut out and ready to sew on my red and cream snowball quilt. It seems to get put on the back burner all the time if I find something else I want to do more. It isn't one of my favorite projects so it is easy to find something else I want to do before I work on it again. But the pile of finished red snowballs keep looking at me like they are anxious to be sewn into a quilt top. Maybe later today. . . . .

I love the brown and turquoise...gorgeous quilt! I know what you mean about putting things on the back burner...I have so many projects started, then I see something else that gets my attention and have to start it! So many quilts, so little time....

I can see why it may get lost...
*smile* how sweet of you to make another of the baby quilts for big sis.

Lol, that sounds like something my sister could have done too.-)
Love the quilts; I'm amazed that you do so many bindings for others when you have so many projects in progress!
