4th of July Grandson

Our Grandson Nico Antonio arrived at 12:17 on the 4th of July !!!!

He weighed 8# 4oz  & 21" long

My daughter had to have a C section. Mom & baby are doing fine .
They get to bring him come home today

This is our first grandchild and now I know what  everyone means about grandchildren.
When I held him for the first time I could not stop staring at this little miracle  and did not want to let him go.

                       This family photo shows how happy all of us are :-D

Nico will grow up thinking all of the fireworks are in honor of him & his birthday  !!!!!

Grandma Sue ... this is going to take some time to get used to ;-)

Tiled Bloom Quilt Aloha Girl fabric petals done :-D

Just finished picking all of my fabrics for my petal blocks and the petals  are all fused on

I used 1 layer cake of aloha girl fig tree fabric Moda and it worked out perfect !
I was able to make 3 petals from 1 10" square. The green fabric is KIWI from this line of fabric and I used the COCONUT fabric for the background.

     My CORAL magnetic bowl from Pleasant.home on ETSY just coordinates so nicely with this fabric :-D

Now to just machine appliqué all 52 petals while I wait for the arrival of my grandson  :-D

Starting a new quilt project " Tiled Blooms " Aloha Girl Fabric

I was in the mood for something simple and summery to make and this Tiled Blooms  Quilt has been on my to do list . I fell in love with Aloha girl by Fig tree Moda fabric and felt that this fabric would be perfect for the quilt to show off the beautiful fabrics in this line :-D

Tiled Blooms is a free pattern by Corey Yoder of Little Miss Shabby you can find it here on her blog.

You make 25 tiled blocks which I finished this weekend using Coconut for the background and Kiwi from the Aloha girl line of fabric

Now the fun part making all 52 petals to machine appliqué on 13 of these tile blocks :-D

Happy Sewing !!
