Baby Quilts and More Baby Quilts

New baby quilts in the works. Just need binding for these two.

Finished up these two last week and put in my Etsy shop. My shop is scrolling on the right side of the blog. I've got two more that still need to be quilted. Maybe that will be it for awhile. I want to get back to my second Scrappy Trip for my bedroom. I never thought I could make the same quilt over and over and over again. But, I enjoy making these little baby quilts. i've got a system going now and I love picking out all the fabrics. If I only used two fabrics, that would be a different story. The fun is in the choosing.

Birdie Quilt

I finished this birdie quilt this morning.
Since we have had rain on and off all morning, I couldn't get great light for this pic.

Our wonderful winter weather is supposed to go away tomorrow. But I like it this way for now.

Baby Quilts

I finished the binding on this baby quilt today. I quilted it with a serpentine stitch on the diagonal. And I've already listed it on my Etsy shop.

This quilt top was finished a long time ago. Just quilted it yesterday and washed it this morning. I am sooooo trying to finish up old projects.
I don't know where I found the bird fabric, but hope I have more. I really like it. I quilted it with an all over meandering stitch, the only thing I can do on my Grace frame!
The light inside my bedroom does it no justice. I think I picked out a wood grain fabric for the binding. I'll have to look that up.
But who knows where it is!!
I am such a slob when it comes to my sewing room.
I have impressed myself..........two baby quilts quilted in one week!!!

This is who keeps me busy two or three days a week.  Little Evie Jo, a sleeping beauty!

Wild Animals Quilted.

I must admit. I had high hopes for yesterday's quilting. At day's end, though, I had only started two blocks for my Scrappy Trip. And my plan was to make and finish six blocks! It was a lazy day for me. So, now I am behind.

This afternoon, I quilted this baby quilt. I used a serpentine stitch and quilted diagonal lines. It's very easy. It keeps the quilt together. And that's always my goal. I wish I liked to quilt, but I don't. Now, into the wash it goes. And then I will put a scrappy binding on it.

Another Super Bowl Sunday!
That means more sewing time for me! Yipee!!

I plan on sewing together the last two rows of this quilt, today, and maybe quilting it. I have already sold two of these, one online at my Etsy shop. But this is pretty much the end of this giraffe fabric, only a half yard left.
You know I never noticed, but there are also lions with the giraffes. This quilt gets a new name!

I finished my first Scrappy Trip last week. I wonder how long it will sit around, before I quilt it!!

A couple days ago, I started another Scrappy Trip. This one will get quilted for sure, since I am going to put it in my bedroom. I pulled the colors from my pillow shams, which I made from a way too heavy quilt I had bought for my bed. I cut it up for these two shams and have plenty more quilt to use for something else.
I will definitely be sewing more blocks for this quilt today. I only have 12 more to go. And the strips are already cut and organized into blocks.  I set a goal of at least 6 a day. Easy Peasy!!
