Still Waiting.....

No twins yet, but they will definitely be here for the next Monday post, so EXCITING!!!  I think I just may be a bit more excited than any of them.  In the spirit of babys' I did finish Veronica's Pachyderm Pals.  Such a cute pattern by Cheri Leffer.  Hobbs 80/20 batting, Glide thread on top, magna glide in bobbin.  I quilted elephants in the big squares, the fabric is so busy it's hard to see but creates a nice texture change for the little guy.  When you look a the back with the minky you can see the elephants, they look polka potted, so fun!




Continuing to pace back and forth with projects - this guy is done, just need to get the backing together, another quilt for H2H

And this guy got started, oh I do love the solids and the earthy tones.  This should be a good one for a guy.  I try to make guy quilts for H2H as well as the sweet girly ones. But ya know the guy thing is a bit harder, at least for me.

And one more splendid sampler block that I made on Lia, have I told you how much I love her?  She sews like a dream.  I may only use Amanda for big long seams.


Ok next I post, there will hopefully be two cute pictures of those sweet little guys that we are so anxious to meet.  Check out the linky parties, so much inspiration and creativeness out there.

  1. Oh, I was hoping, too! How exciting. Love the elephants. I make a lot of guy quilts or gender neutral - have a lot of males in the family so it comes easy. Girly is tough for me.

  7. Two nice looking quilts coming soon. A friend works at a NICU and has told our guild that she generally has more boys in the unit than girls. I try to make lots of boy quilts for that reason.

  9. What is that guide plate you have on your machine? Is it just for that one, or does it for most old machines?
