A very especial baby quilt




This is the baby quilt I made for a very especial baby, our grandson! 
He was born on February 6th and he is the most sweet baby ever!

 
                          
                       I machine quilted it with what I call sort of "swirls and feathers". 

  
               I stiched the eyes and the legs.



 


Wishinging you a lovey and creative week!

Always missing you


I never knew,
That without you,
My heart would ache so badly

Know that I will keep you close to me,
No matter where I go or where I'll be.



It's a year now since you left us,
but you're present in my days,
always,
my dear
dear sister.

"I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)" - E.E. Cummings

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

 

There are some people in life
That make you laugh a little louder
Smile a little bigger
And just live a little better

Wishing each of you a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Out of sight, out of mind….Or, the advantage of being a chaotic quilter…

 

The excitement about trying a new technique (the one I mentioned on my last post)

made me take a look at my scrap boxes.

Oh my….

What do you think I found?….

What a bird brain…

How could I forget my string blocks???… I first showed them  here

After deciding which pattern I liked most

I made more blocks,

I took a break….

made more blocks, and…

time passed…

Other projects took place,

the box with the blocks found a nice corner in the sewing room.

Why did they not scream??…I sure would have heard!

Enough waiting,

I started sewing the blocks.

It’s going to be a square quilt,

I have three more blocks to sew.

Sometimes a new idea helps you to finish an old project!

Wishing you a lovely sewing time!

New ideas

 

Again and again,

scrap quilts always

get my attention,

the colors, the fabrics,

beautiful, joyful,lovely.

 

I saw this one in Australian Homespun No.128,

A nice way of using remnants to “make” your own pieces of fabric and

then cut them into parallelograms:

Interesting, isn’t it?

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

For the little ones

 

 

It was time to make some preemie quilts again,

something I really enjoy.

Some little bears,
