Recent Projects

Here are a few projects I've been working on:

I've been working on a few names this summer.

A quilted Auburn toddler bib and an infant bib. I also made an Alabama bib, but it's not pictured.

This is a flannel rag quilt, it has denim on the back side, which 'ragged' really well!

This is the back side. I used some old jeans and denim skirts.
It is perfect to throw down anywhere for a baby.

Last weekend we helped host a double baby shower for two moms that are adopting. One family is adopting their fifth Asian child. The other family is adopting for the second time.

I did not make this quilt, but it was ADORABLE! EXCELLENT JOB Bria!!!

Do you know what happens when you teach everyone you know how to quilt? It makes it really hard to give quilts as gifts. :o/

Showers are fun to give. This shower was a joint effort from a few ladies of our Bible study group. Our church also celebrates every birth and adoption with a shower, which is so different than how the world celebrates babies. I am thankful!

On this cake I put little babies of color, since one baby will be from Vietnam and the other one will be a black baby. One 'funny' person at the shower joked about the "cute Obama babies" on the cake...hee hee....I THINK NOT! ;o) These babies will be raised in Godly homes, with the fear of the Lord to 'change' the world by obeying God!

Today was our Guild meeting. We always have a time of show and tell. Here is Olivia with two of her finished projects.

Snowman wallhanging.

This quilt has embrodery on it, it is so pretty.

Wow! I see more than one finished project I like. I must say, though, that Olivia's pink quilt is beautiful! Does it need a home? I'd be happy to take care of it! :)

Thanks for sharing!
