This is a panel that my sister Jeanette from Inch worm fabrics. The panel was for a soft baby book. Mom and I decided to make this into a baby blanket.
We would love making more baby blankets just to have around when someone has a baby than we would not have to hurry and get one done.
But every time we get close to having one done there is someone who is going to have a baby.
It seems like we are back in the baby boom era again. We have about 3 more blankets that have to be made than we can make them for a little stock pile.

Well here is the first quilt that I have finished in the New Year. I started this quilt in Dec and decided to finish the one in the big frame.
Sorry I have not posted in awhile but the New Year hit me with a bang. The first week I was sick and when I thought I was over it, it said bang I am back. Well I hope that I have gotten rid of it now.
But I did not let it get the best of me. Mom and I have 2 nice size plastic tubs full of scraps. Well we got a stripping machine. I put it to work and have one of those tubs stripped.
I also put 2 baby quilts together and put another border on another one. I will show you those as mom and I get them quilted.
Back to the strips....... Well as some of you know my sister Margaret at average quilter has quilted our mothers round robin. She did not put the binding on. And mom got that quilt today in the mail. First thing we did was look at the strips and found the binding for it. Now all she has to do is put it on.
Mom also has a quilt she is almost finished with so please stay tune and don't give up on us. I will try to be better.
Hope you all have a nice and happy weekend
