Thursday Update

Connie and I met at Farm Chick Quilts this morning to see what Mandy is up to – check out her blog.  Connie bought some new Jo Morton fabric and I picked up several low volume pieces for my next scrap vortex.

When Connie was in the shop yesterday she showed me the baby quilt she made for her niece from a collection of Fig Tree fabrics. It is so soft and sweet – the dogs had to stay back just while we worked but they were very interested.

Today Becky and I are scheduled to play at Concord during the Valentines Day dinner with family and friends at 5:30.  Well, Becky just called to say she was leaving school with the stomach flu!!  You can guess what that means – I am flying solo so this will be a short post – I’m off to find “dinner music” that I can already play without serious practice time needed prior to 5:30.  Ugh!

    Pretty quilt! Those low volume fabrics are so pretty, too. I like the grey cream soft teal prints very much! Good luck, soloist!

    Love the baby quilt! What white fabric do you use so the other fabrics don’t show thru?

    I made an owl wall hanging and the colors would show thru on the white eyes!
    Thank you

      Janet- try doubling the white fabric or lining it with interfacing to keep the other fabrics from showing thru. Hope this helps.

    Beautiful baby quilt. I’ve always had a yen to do some quilting but my other activities seem to get in the way!

    I hope the playing went well. You probably know lots of great dinner music:). The baby quilt is beautiful. Fun to make those.

    Lovely baby quilt. Looks like it could be the Devil’s Claw block from one of your books?
