The little quilt I showed on Monday is quilted!
I'm always super happy when a project is all DONE!
(That means I can give it AWAY!
The BEST part about quilting!)

This quilt is FULL of  happy scraps.
Some of these scraps have been waiting a LONG time
to be included....

Just a FEW of the little pieces that
NEEDED to be in a quilt!

Such sweet vintage fabric.

Since Ms. Juki was unavailable this week....
little Miss Featherweight did the quilting.
She buzzed right along like it was NO PROBLEM!

"A friend in need is a friend indeed".
Miss Featherweight proved her worth this week.

Monday Making

Time for a little linky party
to share what YOU'RE up to.

I sat down and did a little dump and sew quilt top this weekend.
(my affectionate term for dumping out the scraps
and sewing them together)

I LOVE dumping the scraps out....
choosing some pretty colors....
PUZZLING them all together.

I'll be quilting this
and getting it sent off soon.
The baby is due ANY day.

What are you MAKING this week??

I made ONE piece of pie earlier in the week for a gift...
and I couldn't STOP.

I kept digging around.....
Looking for appropriate PIE material.
The NON-calorie kind.

I now have FOUR pieces of pie.
FOUR little potholders
READY for gifting!

This paper pieced pattern is based on this one.
(mine has the addition of a plate)

I dare you to try and make JUST ONE.

Baby snuggles

I HAVE to make something for the new babies.

Homemade baby things are not OPTIONAL.
They are required.

This little baby blanket made with two pieces of flannel....
four cute little ribbon "tags"....
and hand quilting ALL around...
is one of my "GO TO" baby gifts these days.

I LOVE the happy animal print.
SO fun.

I added a little how to video to my YOUTUBE channel
a while back describing how I make these little cuddly blankets.

I'll ADD a book or two for older brother 
I'm going to head over and meet my new little friend.
I am SO ready for
some NEW BABY snuggles!!!

Quilts for the Table - Part two

This weekend I was able to get FIVE more table quilts FINISHED.
If you know me a little bit...
You'll know one of my FAVORITE words is DONE!!!

These little quilts were almost done...
but they needed quilting and BINDING.

Now...I can say...I"m finished.
They are COMPLETE.

A few stray strings???
But...I'm going to call them done.

My goal is 12 table quilts for an upcoming retreat
to be auctioned off.

I'm up to NINE!!!

What are YOU up to this week????

Link up and let us know what YOU'RE making.
