A New quilt project " Gracie Mae "


                               Started this quilt last week and boy am I having fun !



The pattern is named Gracie Mae .  The pattern was designed Donna at IG name @mtnrosedesigns 
She named this pattern after her  Great Niece.  The fabric I am using  is MOXI  Studio M by Moda 
  Using 1 layer cake of Moxi  and  Bella White fabric for the background

I am planning on making 36 blocks. I Have not laid them out yet just putting them on the design wall as I make them.  21 blocks done 15 more to go !

These fabrics ar totally out of my comfort zone but I LOVE them !!!  Fun quilt to make

HAPPY SEWING !

Baskets Baskets & More baskets......

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's day !

I sure did :-D The kids had a BBQ on Saturday and
we had a wonderful time !

Sorry I have not posted for awhile. Seems like I am on Instagram alot
these days. If you would like to follow me on Instagram my name is sue_babich

The only sewing I have been doing this last 2 weeks is making more basket .
I made these 4 baskets for myself 


I have them in my cabinet to hold  my smaller precuts in  and plan on making more for my sewing room.
I will have my 5" charms  in one basket , the next one holds my jelly rolls , next one will hold my smaller FQ bundles and the last one with the cute Rabbits will hold my layer cakes that are rolled up .



 Remember the Yellow and Gray Chevron  baby quilt  and 2 Chevron baskets I made ?
The  mom to be I made them for loved them and asked where I got them ?  I offered to make her more baskets and I mailed  these 5 out to her last week .
Now I have used all of my yellow and gray fabric stash.



To say that I am addicted to these baskets is a understatement ;-D

They are so fun to make in fact to date I have made 18 of these baskets.

These are called 1 hour baskets and here is the link to the free pattern & tutorial for these baskets :
