Have a Very Merry Christmas Quilt

I started  piecing this quilt  December and then Christmas came.

I was determined to finish something that I had started and just finished this quilt yesterday .

 This a close up of the border fabric . Cute trucks carrying snowmen

Some close up pictures of the blocks in this quilt .

 I am happy to say that I did not purchase any fabric for this quilt :-D
    All made from fabric in my stash

 I have red bows for the wreaths to attach after it is quilted

I also have cute little buttons to sew on the Gingerbread man ..

This quilt was a sew along on Instagram by Lori Holt.

My Christmas Eve Surprise

On Christmas Eve hubby and I were both given a envelope and a quarter 
Our daughter  said this is for you and Dad 

When we opened the envelope there was this card and a place to scratch off


I am going to be a GRANDMA !!!

Then we were given this announcement card.
By this time I was still crying and trying to get over the shock ;-)

My Son in law sent me this picture last night saying this was his first purchase for the baby

We just found out that it is going to be a boy !
His due date is July 8th :-D

My daughter is already starting to register for things she would like for the baby.

She is going with this  Nautica theme but with a white crib  So Cute !

My head is already spinning thinking of things to make for my Grandson :-D

Happy Sewing !

Baby Quilt is a finish !!!

 Last night I finished sewing the binding on the baby quilt

So happy how it came out :-D

The Mom to be  colors for the baby room is Sage green And pale yellow and she LOVEs cats.
Do you know how hard it is to find fabric in these colors and with cats ???  I have been looking the last 4 months for fabric ! Yikes.

Mary of Quilt Hollow suggested this Lil Rascals fabric and it was PERFECT !

I did a simple stitch in the ditch around all of the blocks and connectors.

This pattern was just what I had in mind for her baby quilt. OFF TRACK by CLUCK CLUCK SEW

The baby shower is next Saturday the 24th .  Just in time :-D

Happy Sewing !

Making a Baby Quilt

I have been working on this Baby Quilt this last week .
It started when I received a baby shower invitation for the 24th of this month.
The Mom to Be color's for the baby room are sage green , pale yellow and she loves cats.

I found this perfect fabric online " LIL RASCALS " it came out in 2012 and I was lucky enough to find a jelly roll online :-D

Quilt measures 42" x 50 " 

Just look at these cute cats !

I used a wonderful pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew named " OFF TRACK "

I used a Kona White sashing I really think it makes the colors pop !
I have it all pinned and ready to machine  quilt

Look at this backing fabric and  stripe binding fabric I found

Happy Sewing !

A New Year and New Project

Started my New Year by putting away all of my Christmas decorations  and took down my Christmas quilts .

I decided to hang my Chai Tea Quilt for this month and ......

Then I changed out of quilt ladder

Before I started another quilt decided I should start the New Year organizing my sewing room closet

Ahhhh !  Much better :-D

Yes you do see a Christmas stocking on the left.  This is the new quilt I started :-D

This quilt  was a sew along on Instagram last month by Lori Holt .  If you would like to join me on Instagram I am sue_babich  .  I am using only fabric from my stash and am having SO much fun making these

This is what the finished quilt looks like. Isn't it just adorable :-D
I have chosen my fabrics and have cut out my pieces to make the Mittens and Present today .

I also wanted to share with you this wonderful gift I received for Christmas .
