Amanda's back home and new fabrics

Not much sewing this week, busy week at work.  But the weekend is here and Amanda (CV) is back after being in the shop for a month.  She's ready to work and we have some catching up to do!!  I hope to finish my RRCB this weekend.  Only 15 more blocks to quilt, binding and then in the washing machine.

I just got some yummy fabrics which I think are great for baby blankets, nice and bright!  I had to take a break from RRCB and play with them just a little.  I need to make a baby quilt for a little boy who will be here 3 shorts weeks.   This is the first time that I've tried the french braid and I kinda like it.  I'm going to applique some boy toys in the white spaces, cars trucks that sort of thing.

I also went through the patterns and have a number of them ready, I'll send private email to those that expressed interest.  I just want them to go to a good home where someone can enjoy them.  Now, back to Amanda, we've got some work to do.


  1. Now I like that - I've used that pattern for table runners, but never to assemble a quilt.
    Just love the colors and the added applique will look so cute! Have fun sewing.

  2. Sue, that is a great way to use a french braid in a quilt - I've got some rainbow fabrics myself and may just give it a whirl! Thanks for linking up - here's your Whoop Whoop!!!
