friday

It's Friday already!
Here's the little quilt I've been working on.
It's now quilted. Yeah!
Simple diagonal lines...I used blue painters tape for those.
Easy.

The white borders really help to highlight those
cute giraffes!!
See the back?
I had a nice big piece of my focus fabric...just the right width.
Amazing!
Amazing because I do so little planning!

Then....I was able to make some
very special quilt deliveries!!!

Many times I mail a quilt off.
But this time I handed them out
PERSONALLY!!
I got a LOT of pleasure out of that!!!


One teacher quilt.



One baby quilt!

See the pen attached?
That's for the baby's name and birth.
I think I'm going to buy a whole bunch of pens and
begin attaching them to the baby quilts so the
new mom can add the details.

People that deserved and needed some love this week!
I'm so happy to be able to show love and concern this way...
Aren't you?

I'm adding this to amy's sew and tell.
