when he did not get cake for his birthday he got cheeseburgers

i quilted this up in an hour last night you cant really see anything
 i did a swirly flower leaf 
minky on the back  i was a little afraid of it i have to admit i spray basted and pinned and it turned out fine 
i have a green flannel for the binding this will be baby carson quilt

 churndash  baby
my husband loves the old fashioned blocks and i love all the new fabric 

my husband has a cleaning lady at work and he says she works really hard and he would like to give her a baby quilt
 i did check he says it is not his baby!
and would like to give her my hst project i dont think so maybe to someone i know anyway i made this in 4 hrs total from the time i picked out the fabric ( Flirt )i had a fat 8th bundle i cut it all in 5 in squares the white is from leftover log cabin quiltbacking but i am unsure about the border i dont know what the gender and am afraid of making it to boyish
but i do love it

have a great weekend

painted ladies finish and a little freemotion

little freemotion quilting on some extra blocks this is the fabric i used for my other niece dwr quilt i hsve it back from the quilter
sometime i need to sit down and bind these quilts 

i love the texture and i used a high loft batting

 i even like the back

pinwheel corners i did a feather in each white section and seed stitch on the colors
ill take a better picture after i get it bound 

freemotion stitch in the ditch and the back

and this is still what i look at at work everyday they thought the ferry would run by today but not a chance the barges have to chop at it all the way just a path maybe by valentines day

speaking of that i have a couple pillow projects in the works both of my girls have their own appts now and i thought a little pillow decor would be good so check back on that later 
i apperantly have used over out alotted bites for internet and this thing has slowed way down and i have to wait ill the end of the month and it will reset
well have a great day

something a little fun

a few days ago Thelma over at cupcakes and daisies posted a video of 25 block hst
so thinking about all those small hst I have leftover from the 2 swoons got me thinking so I emailed her about the print up and got to my design board and this as a few of what I have
these are so cute I think in the end they will be about 8 in thelmas were 15 I think
I think I can get 24 of the 25 from my pile and they are happy little blocks they make me happy anyway so cheery and bright in these dreary cold days
I am also working quilting on a couple table toppers and Eloise urban birthday curve it up quilt

these are half the blocks the others are opposite these it literally took probably a half an hour to sew press and square up I am boring you with this ruler i'm sure but it really is fun and gets you used to curves because next up Jessica's drunkards path
I also went to a new quilt shop about 65 miles away in Staunton il and picked up a few things on tues
some cute fabric for what now is a baby boy Carson
have a great weekend
