Long time no see...

So the whole reason that I ever started this blog was because I wanted to be able to post the fabulous quilt that my sister and I made for the Blogger's Quilt Festival this month. I haven't done as well as I would have expected with keeping up on the posting end, but I do have a place to post about my favorite quilt when the Festival starts on Friday. I WILL post on that day!!!

Here are two of my most recent projects. Quilts for babies of two of my best friends. One for a boy born about a week ago and one for a girl due at the end of November. The boy quilt is Valori Wells Urban Chick flannels and it is so soft and cuddly! I had the strips from a roll that I had on hand so I added one more fabric and then the dots for the back. Easy-peezy-lemon-squeezy, as my six year old would say!

The second quilt is for a baby girl and I used mostly Sandi Henderson Ginger Blossoms fat quarters that I had in my stash. I made a huge log cabin like rectangle and put a nice thick double layer of flannel for the back. No batting, just two cozy layers of flannel. My friend is using it already and swears that she might not give it to the baby, I may have to make another once she is born!

That is all for now, I'll be back on Friday!
