Finish it up Friday--Baby Quilt

I made the top at the end of 2013 and just finished quilting, binding and labeling just in time. The baby was born a week ago! Now I just have to deliver it.

The theme for the baby's room is Sailboats. I didn't ask about colors, just thought I would do my own thing. I had bought a cute brown and blue flannel last summer that I was dying to use, so brown and blue sailboats came to be!!

The flannel needed to be one inch wider, so the leftover blocks came to the rescue and made it the perfect size.

I made each set of sails from a different blue fabric. The whole top was all from my stash!

I needed to finish quickly so stipple quilting was the way to go. I'm really happy with this one.

I am linking up to Finish it up Friday @crazymomquilts for the first time. Check it out to see what others have accomplished this week!

Sew till next time.......

The day is almost over, but I still wanted to wish all who visit my blog today, a very happy and sweet day!  I spent the whole day at DH's office, shredding paperwork!  At least he was in town and we were able to spend the day together!!  Hope you all enjoy the day!

Design Wall Monday

I was ready to start cutting fabric. I even treated myself to a new rotary cutter, didn't know you could wear those out, but I did! Needless to say, but with every new cutter comes a new and VERY SHARP blade. I bet you know where this is going :-(.

Yep, I lost control and the blade got me. Not too, too badly, but it did bleed for almost an hour! Hey, I'm anemic and didn't need to lose that blood!!!

So, this week, I don't have anything on my design wall. But I do have my Celtic Solstice top done. (You can read more about this pic on my last post)

Celtic Solstice Flimsy

Well, Bonnie is having the Finale link up for Celtic Solstice. Mine is just a flimsy right not and will be for quite a while. Look at this pic carefully----

Notice anything? We'll, if you participated in Bonnie's mystery last year, you may recognize "Easy Street" peeking from behind!! It's still a flimsy too! I really didn't plan for it to still be in this stage, but since it is for no one in particular at this time, it will stay on the stairway until we move, along with Celtic Solstice. If you are interested in making this quilt, Bonnie will have the instructions available on her site until June 1, 2014. After that it will become available in her next book.

Thank you Bonnie for another great mystery!

Sew till next time....
