One Finished, Two to Go


I finished this little boy quilt and it has gone to the grandparents who ordered it for their grandson who is having a birthday on September 5th.  I am so glad they like it! 


I do so like these prints.  I found a seller on ebay who has great deals on these 1930's reproduction fabrics.  I have bought a lot.......
What can I say?  They make me happy!  Oh, and Susan, they have the Civil War reproduction fabrics, too.  Just in case you need  some.



I got both of the other little boy quilts made into quilt sandwiches and started quilting one of them last night.  By the time I stopped (around three this morning) I was about two-thirds of the way through with the quilting.  I was on a roll!


It's still way too hot here to be outside much except very early and very late.  But that does mean there's more time for sewing!


And there still are some pretty things to see when I do go outside.

Hope you're having a totally wonderful day!!!

Hugs and kisses,

Great finished boy quilt. Is this your own pattern, Elaine?
The new 2 quilts are coming along very nicely.
I am so ready for fall and the plants too.

The quilts are looking great! I know the feeling of being on a quilting roll. We're still too cold here for gardening, but we did head to the winter beach yesterday.

This reminds me I've been meaning to take pics of my holly hocks. Before we know it they will be gone. Love the quilt. Kid retro fabric is some of my very favorite.

you are just zipping along on the kids quilts. The boy quilt is another nice setting for the 2 rectangle-square.

I love the colors in that quilt. Green is one of my favorites.
