Little Quilts ...

Last year, I started sewing some little quilts ... A friend and a relative were expecting baby girls, and I wanted to welcome their babies with quilts.


I started months early, knowing that, since I was expecting my own baby, as well, I better get the gift-sewing done early, or it wouldn't happen.


I got little quilt tops started, using this pattern ...

For some reason, once the quilt tops were mostly done, I took a break & didn't work on them.


When my baby was nearly-due, and I needed a project to keep my mind off the "this baby's never coming" thoughts, I finished up these little quilts ... Two baby quilts, and a doll quilt for a toddler-big-sister.



This must've been a good "nesting" project - something I "needed" to finish before having my own baby ... My  little one was born the day after I finished the gift-quilts!

Getting back to the blog ...

You may remember the "Film at Five" quilt I mentioned in a previous post ...


I finished it in December. It was an especially fun project because I made it for my own new baby!


Needless to say, we've been a little busy around here lately!

But since there's always a quilty-project or two in the works, I'm going to get back to blogging a little more, even if it's just by way of phone-blogger-app!


T-Shirt fabric squares ...

We've had lots of these squares-cut-from-T-Shirts at our house lately ... The makings of some new quilts that are now listed for sale on eBay & Etsy ...
