Another Quilt Done!

I started this quilt a long time ago.  I had it on the quilt machine but had problems with the machine breaking my thread.  So Mark took a look at it this weekend and the needle was bent!  I can’t believe I didn’t even look at that, so that was a quick fix.  I got it all finished yesterday and quilted loopy loops in it. 



Downy Quilt for Kids Top Complete


I got this quilt top done!  Isn’t it cute?  Now I will just need to get it quilted and it will be ready to ship off.

Downy Quilts for Kids

I ordered a Quilts for Kids kit last weekend and got it in the mail today! 



I think this is such a cool idea.  You can order your own quilt kit here.  I think their quilt label is so cute.  So I started working on the quilt tonight, got all the 4 patches sewn and sewed 2 rows together.  I’ll probably get it all done tomorrow.  Then will need to get it quilted.

After it’s all done, the label is on it, I wash it and pack it up to send back to the company.

L’amour Fabric – Jelly Roll

I ordered a Jelly Roll last weekend and it came today!  I am really excited about it and love the colors in the line.

Moda Lamour Valentine Ivory and Red Hearts

I think I am going to try to do this quilt Sampler.   The first block comes out March 1st.  I am not sure what I am going to do for the wide border or the sashing.  I really like the dark browns, maybe the brown with little red hearts as the wide border and maybe the solid red for the sashing.  The pattern calls for background fabric and I’m not really sure what that is used for, so will wait and see what the first one looks like before I order anything. 

We had a Valentine’s Party at pre-school today.  I will try to post the pictures later.
