Where's Spring?

What a rainy, icy not so spring day. I thought it was Spring. But I do live in Kansas. It is too bad the weather is so crazy with the ice. I hope it does not ruin all the little buds of the new growth that is coming up. Especially my Clematis's that seems to do being great until today.
I have received back the baby quilt I have been doing for my grand baby that will be here soon. I just love my pro long arm quilter that I usually use, she is so talented.(thanks Theresa :D) I am going to square it up this weekend and sew on the binding, since there will be no yard work this weekend. (due to weather) Well I need to go tend to the laundry and get started squaring.

Happy Quilting, Teresa

Baby Quilt Continues.......

Here is the quilt top I have made for my new grand baby that will be arriving soon. Pinks and blacks are the colors used and for some reason when I sketched up the design, hearts is what I could see putting in the design. There is also a pic of the quilt back fabric which is these cutie little ducks.
So it has been sent off to the professional machine quilter for her to do her magic on the quilt. Hopefully I will have it done for the baby shower on April 18th. Me and my hubby are so excited on the new arrival and our family getting larger.

I finished up the tea towel with an appliqued turkey on it that I did at the sewing expo in 2008.
The easy part is applying the fabric pieces it's the button hole stitch around all the pieces that seem to take more time to do. I machine button holed stitched around it. It probably would have taken me much longer if I did it by hand. I should not complain cause I think it looks pretty good for a beginner. Well I'm going to go watch a movie with the hubby now. I'll chat soon.

Moving right along...........

It is such a nice day today even though the weather man said it was going to rain and we have no rain yet.
I have been busy working on the baby quilt, I am making some head way on it.
Here is a pic of my gk's they are so sweet. They are both wanting to see their new baby sister, which is not here yet until June 9th. They don't understand it is a time process. They say "get her out of your tummy, we want to see her." I JUST LOVE 'EM.......
So I am going to work on the baby quilt today for a while then we are going to a friends house tonight for movie night. I can't wait for spring.

I'm going to be a grandma

Well I am going to be a grandma, so I get to make a baby quilt. I decided to make the quilt using black and pink fabrics, the mommy really likes those colors and me too. Here are the fabrics I am putting in the quilt. I have designed a pattern on my graph paper. It is nothing fancy but I think will work great. Hopefully it won't take me too long to construct this quilt top and get it off to the machine quilter. Well this post will be continued later when I get further along on this quilt .
