Then I made another quiet book and a few "tag alongs". The tag alongs are favorites of babies. The fabric is minke or flannel so is soft and cuddly. Then the tags of ribbon sewn all around have texture also. Of course I didn't have time to get a few little baby quilts made for it but I'll be working on them for the Spring.
My grandson, Spencer, called me a couple of weeks ago and told me he needed a new Indian costume. I made him one a couple of years ago and it had worn out since he wears it so much. This time he told me to go up in the mountains, kill an animal, skin it and use the skins to make the clothes because that's what real Indians did. Like I'm going to do THAT. So I used flannel that looks a little like leather. It turned out pretty good. Luckily you can't see my mistakes and I hope he doesn't notice them either.
This is a Christmas quilt I made a couple of years ago for a store to advertise their pattern and fabric. It turned out pretty good.....EXCEPT....the store added the backing and quilting. I was quite disappointed in the fabric they chose. PLAIN WHITE with red thread quilting. A nice soft green or red flannel would have been so much cozier.
Best get busy and finish my Christmas shopping so it will get to families on time.
Happy Quilting! Lynda
