Church Baby Quilts

This was a very productive month for me for getting baby quilts done.   3 of the tops were pieced by someone in our NP Comforts group at church and those I quilted and bound them.  I do machine binding on these as I know they will be washed a lot.  
Most of the quilting is stippled and done free motion.  This green bordered one I quilted loops and hearts in the outside border.  
I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the one I delivered last Sunday 🙁.  

Here are the other two.  
Then this last one was brought to me by a friend to add binding.   Her grandmother made this quilt in the early 1970's.  Believe it or not, it was machine quilted on a long arm!
Anyway, April was a busy month!   But I have loved every minute.  Oh yeah, I also made cards for these new babies.  Here are a couple of pics. 
Here's to an awesome May!

Dress Quilt

My good friend Doris made this beautiful quilt top and asked me to quilt it for her.  It was my pleasure!

And some block close ups!

Hand Lettering

Have you ever wondered if you could do some fancy, smanchy lettering?   Well, since I began Bible Journaling, I've been trying really hard to do this.   NOT successfully tho.   So, I went a searching and found this lovely book and took it to Office Depot, got it spiral bound and began on my journey of learning.   If its something that may interest you, you will love this book!   Now back to practice!

Baby quilts!

I forgot to post these last week.  Two more church babies are covered in love!


Such fun!

Gift boxes and tissue holders

Some virus is going thru my house.  But I cannot stay in bed!   Of course these cuties don't require much energy or time - perfect for yucky feeling days.  I'll be giving these to some special friends I sing with.  
Hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!

UFO finish

I finally got this baby girl quilt for church finished.  It had remained borderless and unquilted for three months.  I am so glad to have it done.
