Monday Making

This week I hope to add a border to ALL these scraps!
Wonder what color it will be??
I could choose almost ANY color
and it would WORK!

This quilt uses a lot of older fabrics...
and to me, it looks like it belongs in a cabin somewhere.
The quilt block I used is called a
HALF log cabin.

I had some leftover blocks from a class I took
a LONG time ago.
One thing led to another...
I began making more blocks
and NOW there's almost a QUILT!!!!

What are YOU making???

Monday Making

There's a theme going on in my sewing room.

It seems I'm on a baby quilt KICK!

has a quilt along going
and I succumbed.
I began a NEW quilt with others still unfinished.
Surprise. surprise!!!

Once I began sewing strings together...
I couldn't STOP!!!

The tiniest little pieces were used to make
this adorable pincushion!!!

Yeah for teeny tiny scraps!!!

What are YOU making this week??

Quilts and Babies - Monday Making

This post is FULL of quilts
Babies ON quilts.
I have a little collection of pictures
that I hope will GROW year by year
as the babies come
and the thank you pictures arrive!!!
Some of these I have posted before....
but IT's SO FUN to see some of them together!!

I've given 3 baby quilts away this week
and ONE lap quilt!!

I depleted my baby quilt pile...
so I THINK this week I'll be sewing something
with PINK or BLUE fabric.
A small quilt.

What are YOU making this week???

Friday Finishes

Since this quilt began as a personal challenge....
I had NO idea I'd have it finished ALREADY!

The binding is even ON!

Hooray for finishes!!
Using the STASH!

I also finished this tea towel apron.

I made it RIGHT after purchasing it from the thrift store this week 
Knowing that if I waited....

It would be forgotten.

Now it hangs along with the other aprons
in the cupboard....
READY for action!!

I love having a little
practical memory of a great city!!
