New Babies

This winter/spring our family has been blessed with two new baby boys, my great grandsons.  They live in different states so I thought I would make each of them the same cute quilt.  I used bright colors thinking later their moms could use the quilt to teach them their colors.  Welcome to our world Beau and Brogan.

Dresden Plate 1

I just finished hand quilting this Dresden Plate.  The fabrics are from the Aunt Grace line of fabrics that I accumulated over several years.  It is a warm, cozy quilt for cold winter days and nights.

Carolina Blue Quilt Top

I completed the quilt top for my grandson who is attending UNC.  He had requested the colors of Carolina Blue and white.  I chose a variety of Carolina blues for the blocks and did the sashing in white with navy cornerstones.  The binding will also be navy.  I love
the way this quilt turned out and I know he will enjoy it also.  He is such a great young man!  It will go out to the longarm quilter in mid September.

Maybe Before Christmas

I have been asked to make a quilt for one of my wonderful grandsons who is headed off to college this fall.  He wants it Carolina Blue and White.  Yesterday I headed to Dahlonega for the beginning of
fabric purchases and found the background and a few Carolina blues.  Also I found the backing which is a medium blue with Carolina blue dots.  This quilt will be machine quilted by one of my friends who does long arm quilting.  Watch for pictures as the process begins.

My Georgia Quilt

I started hand quilting this quilt in mid February and completed the quilt June 10.  I love the colors in this quilt as it reminds me of our Georgia Bulldog Football team and the enjoyment our family receives from watching them play.  I may be a country girl from Mississippi, and I do love the Ole Miss Rebels, but having lived in Georgia over forty years I love, love the Bulldogs.

Bonus Room Cleaning

Today in Georgia we have hunkered down for rain and winds.  They are saying we could have up to 5 inches of rain over the next several days.  I have no appointments so I will be at home and have the opportunity to get caught up on some house cleaning and may a little sewing.

My upstairs bonus room use to be my sewing room and I loved having a designated space to call my own.  But the children became concerned with me having to climb the stairs and I converted one of the downstairs bedrooms into a “downstairs” sewing room.  The bonus room became the dump room after that move.  Everything that did not have a designated place to go was “dumped” upstairs.  Fabric was everywhere up there and I finally got tired of trying to fine what I wanted.  This week I cleaned up my fabrics that were not in bins or storage bins.  Absolutely amazing what I found that I had forgotten that I had purchased.  Now the fabrics are sorted by color or projects and the bonus room is looking so much better organized.  Not perfect, but better.

Today I hope to get started on a new quilt project.  Will keep you posted.
