Baptist Fan

Sorry, I don't have a picture for this blog. I have always like the Baptist Fan quilting stencil. I purchased several sizes when I went to Paducah several years ago and just never did anything with them. Then I made a small quilt, disappearing nine patch, and decided I would try to learn how to use the stencil. My friend Susan, gave me a quick lesson. I started the quilting and found out how to mark the top with a washable pen. After the first row across it just came in place and is looking great. I know I will be using this quilting pattern many times in the future. Will post a picture when the quilt top is completed.
Happy Quilting to all.

New Great Grandson

This is a picture of our newest great grandson, Vikter. He doesn't live close to us but we are able to keep in touch with his Mom and Dad in facebook. This makes two great grandsons for us. And I know there will be many more since we have eight grandchildren, seven boys and one girl. And now speaking of quilting, I finally finished the Bethany Reynolds Stack and Whack quilt top. It is hugh! And so heavy! I don't know if I will ever get it quilted. Picture will follow later. Now I am trying to finish up my UFO's. The Baltimore Album quilt top needs six more blocks before it will be ready to sew together. But this will be more of a lap quilt than a bed quilt. Hope you have a joyful day with lots of quilting.
