I finished a quilt for my new nephew, Brayden.

I washed and dried this quilt before giving it away.
I wanted to finish it before he was born, but that just didn't happen.  The center of the quilt is a solid piece of fabric.  I thought it was so cute just like it was, I couldn't see the point in cutting it up and then sewing it back together again.  This type of quilt sure does go together quickly!

The backing fabric is red, white and blue stars.

Brayden's Mom loves this quilt.  Its perfect for a little boy.

This Week's Quilting Project

Just a short post to show what I'm working on this week.

A new nephew, Brayden, was born last week.  I wanted to have this done before he was born, but since he only weighs 5 pounds 1 ounce, I think its safe to say he won't need this size quilt too soon!

I finished pin basting it and have the sewing machine all set up for quilting.  So, hopefully, I can finish it this week.

Its raining here this morning.  Of course it is!  Its Monday!

Have a great day!

Icy Day Sewing - Part 2

It turns out that my office is closed all day, so I had time to do a little sewing.  In case you already thought I was a little quirky, here's confirmation.  I made a clothespin bag and took pictures of it hanging from the front porch with the wintry scene behind it.

Thinking of summer days with clothes on the line and wishing you a cozy day!

Icy Tuesday and Recent Sewing

There's a two hour delay for work today.  Yay!  I'm hoping for a whole day off, but its not even light enough outside to tell what's out there yet.

I made myself a new key fob recently.  I love this sunflower fabric!

I made a new style of clothespin bag.  This one is for my stepdaughter, whose husband built her a new clothesline last summer.  I plan to make some of these for my Etsy Shop if I EVER get time to work on them.

Depending on what today holds for me, I hope to work on another bag.

Stay Warm!
