I got home late on Wednesday night and was tickled to see this package of batiks had arrived. 3 yards of each that I picked up from the Connecting Threads sale. Guess I’d better start using my batiks!
Here is what I worked on Thursday after laundry and cleaning. I used 5 different batiks for these blocks including 1 of my newest. I should have used only one light. There is a tan and also a yellow…….the yellow really seems to overwhelm so I chopped up the blocks a little more to tone it down.
Yesterday I finished putting the blocks together and was surprised at how well I liked it after adding 1 border. I then added a couple more borders to make it larger enough to cover the top of our king size bed…….now to quilt it. I’ll have more pics soon.
I thought you might enjoy seeing a couple of future crafters/quilters. My granddaughter was so tickled to learn how to make stars.
They had their crayons in the little crayon holder I had made….notice the red string runner in the background – I gave my daughter a couple runners for Easter.
Here is one of my Sunkissed runners, looks great for Easter!
The girls have these cute little toddler beds with a couple of quilts I made on them.
I always forget how much energy little ones have, I took along my computer, a stitchery kit and a book so I wouldn’t get bored while babysitting for 3 days. Guess what…..I got on my computer a little bit but that was it. I even went to bed earlier than normal…..(shortly after the girls). My grandson thought that was pretty funny.
This is Mr. Jones whom I got to share a bed with. The first night I turned off the lights, went to get in bed and put my hand on him and scared myself to death as I hadn’t known he was there!
It sure is nice to be back in my quilt studio!!
