Really.......3 months!

 Can't believe I haven't posted for 3 months!  Also can't remember if I've already shown these 2 baby items.  I've had this Disappearing 4 Patch done for ever but finally got the binding on.  Love the candy cane stripes.
 I love making these simple receiving blankets for new babies.  Found this fun Cat in the Hat fabric and had to make one for a new baby boy in our neighborhood.
 This is one of the reasons I make make forts.  Don't you love the mix of toys: a doll for Ellie and football for Gavin.  Most of the time these 2 really play well together.  Other times Gavin's boyness really comes out and he wants a wrestling match.
 Another receiving blanket for a little girl great niece.  Also made a tag-a-long for her.
A friend's daughter is getting married in December.  I heard she really wanted red for the bedroom.  Luckily I had all the fabrics to make another Twister quilt.  I really liked the Chevron backing I found.    The quilting is done in red thread and looks amazing.  She really, really loved her new quilt.

I actually have another baby quilt in the making on my design wall right now.  My niece just had her 4th little boy.....oldest 1 is in Kindergarten this year!  I'm putting together a simple blue, green and gray quilt and may even try machine quilting it myself this time.

Happy Quilting!                Lynda

It's nice to see you are back ;)! Although you might not have been "visible" much, but you've certainly haven't been idle with all these wonderful quilts to show for. How cute is that Cat in the Hat quilt and the wedding quilt is stunning and no doubt will be received very happily. Your grand children are growing fast and are enjoying your lovely quilts too. That's what's it all about, isn't it?
