Helllloooooooo~~~~~ there is definitely a big echo here.
Its been a long time since I have posted anything here. Not because I haven't had anything to show or talk about....just life seemed to get in the way. I have missed the Blogworld terribly and I have been pining for months to get back to it.
What have I been up to??? Sadly stitching has taken a back seat in recent months, and baby stuff making has been in the works. Because there are 3 little grandbabies cooking away and getting ready to make their entrance into the world in a few short months. And when I think of how much time I have left to get everything ready, my crafting mojo goes into overdrive.
And up first some pics of the baby quilts~
This is a twisted log cabin design done in beautiful bright colours. I love this quilt, it makes me happy just to look at it. Here you can see a pic of the fabric used for the backing. I used a jelly roll to make this quilt, so just used pieces of the leftovers joined together to use for the binding. I like the scrapiness of binding strips like this and it fits in with the scrappy log cabins. This quilt is for my future grand~daughter!
And next up ~
This is from a pattern in the book called Schnibbles x2. I used a layer cake called Lily & Will by Bunnyhill (love their patterns!). I had this layer cake in my stash for a few months, anticipating the need to make a baby quilt.
And then I learned, I needed to make another one when my daughter found out she was expecting twins! Luckily, Bunnyhill made this fabric line in a couple of different colourways :-D
So another layer cake was on the way~
....and a blue one this time, once I found out the twins were going to be boys!
So as you can see I have been spending a lot of my free time here:
But eventually I hope to get back to this lovely sampler~
