Look at what I found this morning while blog hopping!! Perfect for the upcoming holiday season and perfect for this inexperienced newborn quilter too.
My husband and I are beside ourselves! Our hearts are full of love for this brand new baby boy, our grandson. Our baby girl had a baby, his name is Wyatt James. Isn’t that an awesome name?!! Sounds strong…and cute enough for a boy while at the same time masculine enough for a grown man. It’s so heartwarming to watch Rebecca and her hubby, Chris be parents. They’re blessed with a precious little Wyatt and Wyatt is blessed with loving, wonderful parents. <3
OMG!! A sweet grandson! That’s right…’Snakes, snails & puppy dog tails”
Wouldn’t a baby quilt with that theme be a terrific idea? Time to pick up my sketch pad and get busy drawing out some ideas. What do ya think? Snakes, snails & puppy dog tails matches up with my grandson’s name perfectly.
Sorry I’m not posting a picture but don’t fret…lol….there will be some photos coming….. I just couldn’t wait to share this fabulous news.
Thanks for stopping in…..Happy sewing…..
I really do need to get back to blogging regularly! I have a few ideas and creations I’d love to share with all of you. You can also check out some of my scrapbooking and card creations at ‘Paper Creations Den’ …..lots of posts over there
Had such fun creating these squares. Since I’m new, brand spanking new!, to quilting I chose to take a class at Craftsy.com and take advantage of the experience offered by the fabulous quilting instructors.
After making the original quilt block, I assembled 3 more exactly the same which would create one row 48″ long. The next thing….Get my graph paper, draw the chevron pattern to scale so 3 more rows could be made and added to create nice matching pattern for the front of the quilt.
The next step for me is to sew these squares together, attach to a nice cotton backing and then make a decision for the back of the quilt. Instead of using one large piece of fabric I think I’d like to incorporate a small piece of fabric from each square somehow on the quilt back. Sounds interesting….we’ll see if this quilting novice can make it happen in a stylish way….Hope, hope, hope….Prayers please
Any and all suggestions are greatly & happily received appreciatively!
This is made with some little leftover pieces from the bigger quilts, but it is Amy Butler's Love in Heart fabrics. I've got this smaller size baby quilt ready to ship here.
It's not big enough for a crib, more of a blanket that would be good to put on baby in a carseat, or stroller, or something like that.
Well, today is the first day of my life on WordPress. I’ve had a papercrafting blog (http://paper-creations117.blogspot.com/) on Blogger for a few years displaying my scrapbooking & handmade cards. I don’t think it’ll be too difficult to learn WP’s system but I take lots of time reading the ‘how-to’ of any new undertaking….so…..I apologize for being a bit dormant during the early life of this site…..but I promise to get busy posting some of my sewing thoughts, projects & sharing some fun blogs I find searching the wonderful, creative blogosphere.
Sewing has become my newest creative hobby therapy ( )….I haven’t sewn a stitch in 25 years but now that I’m retired it’s time to get my Singer Sewing Machine humming again. A new grandson will be entering our family this fall and my very first project is going to be a quilt for him to cuddle under. SO EXCITED ……Ecstatic, actually…..Hence, the name in this blog….’Nonni’
Thanks for your curiosity and stopping in to take a look Around. Your comments, suggestions & requests are GREATLY appreciated.
