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
