DWM 4/18

I'm writing this post on an iPad on the train, sure hope this works 😁.my design wall has a fairly diverse collection of blocks and quilts this Monday. Splendid Sampler blocks,18 so far. Table runner with left over hsts fro hamds2help2016 quilt, and a nice sized lap quilt for Hands2help.  I've had these scraps sitting on a shelf for almost five years. Finally, I cut these while waiting for twins, more on those sweet guys in just a few minutes. And sewed them together while waiting for paint to dry. Seems I can get quite a bit done while waiting for either twins or paint to dry
H2H Hi quilt 1

Splendid sampler blocks, table runner and super sized Maramalade quilt

H2H Hi quilt 2

H2H HST, love these solids 

The McHenry Happy quilters got together for some Hands2help sewing, we had six machines going, three tops completed, these ladies are awesome. I believe that puts our total at nine quilts, we jul might hit out goal of fourteen this year! These are stacked bricks from the book Skip the Borders by Jaybird quilts.The husband put together a wonderful sandwich tray, these ladies worked up an appetite!

Ok guess who's here??  Yes they finally made it, Louis is 19.5 inches long and 6 lbs 1 oz, while Calvin weighs in at 6 lbs 4 oz and 22 inches tall. They are not identical so we can all tell who is who and I have to say they are the sweetest little guys! Love them so much. I'm on my to the city to spend the day with them and their older brother. So much fun.  These guys showed up between blocks 17 and 18 of the splendid sampler, super splendid if you ask me.

Hope everyone has a great week, don't forget to check out the pinky parties on the side bar, lots of inspiration

  20. I'm not sure how any of us can think about your great quilts with those darling boys sharing space on your blog. Congratulations. I hope your visit was wonderful. Any possibility of sharing the panto of your H2H 1 quilt? And, just to see how you get that marvelous texture -- what batting are you using? Great eye candy. Thanks for sharing.
