DWMonday

I hope you all had a great weekend. We sure did. Hubby is home from his business trip and we spent a lot of time with Daughter #1 and family and Daughter #2. I finished the rest of my lattice blocks and they are up on the design wall now.

I also have the last four leftover blocks from the sister quilt up.

I would like to put these together and add a border to make a baby quilt. I want to really play with my long arm templates and do some custom quilting on this.

But this is the project I would like to start today if I have time. I purchased this panel for big brother Liam when I was out in Arizona.


He loved little brother Lincoln’s quilt with the soft minky type backing. So I bought this throw to use as the backing. It was much cheaper than buying yardage at the fabric store.


I will use a low loft poly batting and see how it goes. I am thinking I will free hand spider webs in the background. I hope he likes it as much as he liked little brother’s quilt!

We shall see if I actually get anything done today with my helper:

If he takes a good nap, I might get Spider Man loaded on the frame!

    Love how the lattice quilt is coming along.
    Your leftover blocks will make a sweet baby quilt.
    Who needs to load a quilt when they have such a handsome gentleman keeping them company? : )

    LOVE spider man; how cute is that! I can hardly wait to see how he turns out, with the spider web quilting design. Your grandchildren are blessed indeed to have you in their lives.

    That Spider Man panel with the soft backing will be fantastic!! And I love the idea of adding a border and making a baby quilt out of those leftover blocks from the sister quilt. I can only imagine the fabulous quilting in those large open areas. I can’t wait to see it.
