|Winnie The Pooh Baby Quilt Top|
|Flannel Baby Quilt with Trucks & Froggies|
|Dr Seuss - Cat in the Hat & other Characters|
I feel so excited today and in the midst of packing for my Road Trip to Tennessee with my friend Valoriea, who is moving to Tennessee. I will be driving her pickup truck down while she drives the 26 ft. U-Haul with all her belongings. We just picked up the U-Haul and I must say she handles it very well. Her Truck is comfortable and I see no problem driving it down. We plan to take our time and sleep overnight in Ill. before heading on to Tennessee. We also are going to make a side trip to visit a quaint Amish Store that she has been to before and then stop in Paducah KY at the Quilt Museum. I am
taking my Camera along to take photos of my journey.
Last week was an awesome week at the quilt retreat I went to in Hudson WI for our LQS "Sew Little Time" Ladies Night Out. I was able to go Tues Eve thru Sunday and did get a lot done. I made 5 baby quilt top, 2 are already sandwiched and ready to quilt. I made 2 of baby flannels that had ducks and frogs and puppies in them. One quilt was created using a vintage fabric of children picnicking in the park. I used soft greens and greys for this one with a very simplistic pattern of Charm Squares and Rectangles. Dr. Seuss was the focus of another quilt where I used 6" squares of Dr. Seuss patterned fabric surrounded by bright colorful crayon colors of blue, red, green, orange and yellow. I enjoyed making this magical bright quilt and plan to give it to one of my great grandsons. Winnie the Pooh fabrics were my next focal prints in soft pastel. I think this one is my best so far and I loved the way it turned out. I used a disappearing nine patch pattern with Pink, Blue and 2 different Pooh fabrics as the outer squares.
