Some New Projects

Yesterday was a very full day. In the morning before work, I put one baby quilt top together. 

As you can see, the piecing is simple, but I love the bold, graphic nature. It will be so fun to quilt! As I was thinking about a backing, I decided this might be a great time to make another baby quilt top and quilt both of them at the same time on the long arm. So I cut some more pieces. 

And I got this star pieced.  

 I need to add to this but it is a good start.  


The double star block finishes at 16 inches and the flying geese are each 4 by 8 inches.

After work, Daughter #3 stopped by for a lovely visit. I miss her since she moved out! She helped me make some decorating decisions on the room I have been repainting. After she left, I talked to Daughter #3 on the phone and then got the baseboards painted.
After work today, I have a meeting at church about sewing some drapes for the stage area. Then I am driving to meet a member of Stitching Sisters to hand off some QOVs. I hope tonight that I can get this second baby quilt top finished.

Hubby will be home on Sunday afternoon. I am running out of time to get all my projects done! In just a week, we will be leaving on a trip to Missouri to visit his parents. I am so looking forward to it!

  1. Busy, busy, busy! Great idea, quilting two baby quilts on your long arm side by side. You should be able to do lots of fun quilting in the negative space for both of these, and I like the bold graphic designs. Very fresh and modern.

  2. oooo I just love that pop of blue in the flying geese row. Its gonna be cute!!

  3. Love your colors 😉

  4. Looks like great baby quilts! The one things I dislike about using so much white is that it limits what you can do with the back. It pretty much has to be mostly white, or very light colors, or it might show through to the front

    You are really an inspiration. Working, quilting for QOV, making quilts you want to make, painting rooms and now draperies for a stage!!! What else can you squeeze in?

    I can’t wait to see what else you’re going to do with that striking star block.
