New Babies

I know. It's been a long time since I posted. I'm not going to make up excuses or anything like that...I don't have any. I just haven't posted. But I'm going to start again. I've really missed being in blogland. So...this is my return post.

Several babies have been born in my extended family during the past year. I made quilts for all of them. One for baby Hudson but I gave it away before I took a picture...and they live kind of far away for me to get one. It was a rag quilt in blue, red, and tan colors. I thought it turned out very nice.

This one is the quilt I made for baby Mason. It is a snowball pattern in different blue, yellow, and green fabrics. It has a soft flannel back. The binding is blue. I love the way it finished.

I'm almost finished with the one for baby Halle...hope to have it off to the quilter this week! Just need to add the side borders. I'll post a pic after I finish.

I also received a request from one of my friends who will be PTA president for the next school year to contribute a couple of baby quilts for a silent auction to raise money for that school. I already had some baby quilts in the works, not knowing who they would be for, so that works out perfectly. I'll post pics after they are completed too.

I've also been working on some exchanges with a quilt group I belong to...they have been fun. I'm especially looking forward to our next exchange. The fabrics are very modern and I tend to stay more traditional so I'm excited to try something new and I can't wait to see all of the blocks! If you have any suggestions for modern quilt block patterns, please let me know. Thanks!

Well, I'm off to visit all the blogs I've been missing! Good to be back! Enjoy your weekend! :)
