quilting


well, i have been quilting a lot again. however, i currently cannot post any real pics as most of them are gifts for the upcoming new mommas in our church. this one is olivia helping me with a flannelette ruffle edge quilt, which is now completely finished.
i recently read on someone's quilt blog that they only make quilts for the first born in a family. ouch. that hardly seems fair! Thomas pointed out that maybe it is supposed to become a hand me down. i think every new baby deserves his or her own blankie!
anyway, i have been keeping busy, and being creative. once these baby showers start happening i'll be able to post the quilt pictures. i am so excited to share them. i pretty much fall in love with each and every quilt that i make.
thomas laughs cause he always hears me saying... "oooh, this one is so so nice!"
i love to make these quilts with specific people and babies in mind. maybe i can find a picture of the one i made for Carys. because that one has a backing fabric that is sooo Carys.

anyhoo, i am off to start another quilt. there has been another baby announcement. Mike and Kristen are expecting their first baby in november.

our church will almost double in size this year due to the number of babies we are expecting! lovelyness.

Kate! I am getting into quilting too - I have so far made one rag quilt and they are so fun and easy! I am working on another one now. Keep up the domesticity!

You inspire me to buckle down and finish the ONE quilt I've been working on. And I agree, every kid, not just the first-born, deserves a blanket. I just can't be relied on to make them all...or even one for that matter.
