I was browsing the blogs and ran across something that really caught my attention. It was from Carla of Cora Quilts and was her American Jane 9 Patch Baby Quilt:
I'm not sure what it was about her baby quilt, but I knew I needed to make one. So, I went digging through my 2 1/2" blocks to gather a variety of fabrics and started putting together some happy blocks. They weren't as happy as Carla's and I might just have to do this one again using the fabrics that she used which was ABC 123 Charm Pack by American Jane for Moda Fabrics. Here's my top put together:
I've also made a couple of pillow cases. I originally made them for a charity give away, but when I showed them to my daughter, she fell in love with them. Maybe she'll forget about them before I have a chance to mail them to her.
I've been sort of busy this month. I have finally got my Sister's Choice blocks put together into a top. I first posted about this quilt in March and am now on the search for a border for this:
I'm happy with how it has turned out. There are so many different fabrics that have been accumulated over the years as well as some that were given to me by friends and family. There are lots of memories here. I look forward to having this one live on my bed.
