A Few Granddaughter Things

Our granddaughter is due to arrive in September. Whup! Whup!  We have a marvelous 22 year old grandson and thought that was it for grandkids.  Life has it's way and son met a lovely gal and they are pregnant!  Everyone is excited, of course.  We are scheduled to meet the baby & mother in December and, of course, I've been making a few things.  They had a baby shower that we were not able to attend, but I sent them a few things just to have something to open from us.  The baby's room will be pink, gray, white.

Vacation Time June BOM

This went together so fast!  Pat Sloan named the June Block Summer Nights and mentioned the song from Grease.  Love that movie!!

June Little Quilt

Rummaging thru a box of fabrics, I found some black/dark gray and tan that I'd forgotten I had.  Used it for the June Little Quilt.  This one measures about 19"x22".

NYE 2014 Mystery Quilt Top is Together!

Finally!  At least it's taken me less than a year to get this top put together!!!  I threw it over the bedspread and pillows to get this shot.  Colors are fairly accurate, altho the background mottled pink doesn't show up too well.  This is a twin size measuring about 72"x90".

My pile of unquilted tops is getting lower!  I may actually get them all done this, on second thought, I probably won't! LOL

Texas Snowflake quilting

I had to put aside the NYE Mystery quilt to get a top quilted for an upcoming housewarming gift.  Decided to use the Texas Snowflake quilt from a few years ago.  It was a Carol Doak BOM from her Yahoo Group.  Remember this??

And here's a closeup of the simple quilting I'm doing.  I created the design from a pattern in the fabric.  See it in the large triangle fabric piece next to the quilting?  I made the pattern into a panto, but I probably could have done this free motion, too.

I had planned on practicing some fancy quilting on this one as there's a lot of open space to play with.  However, since it's needed quickly, no fancy stuff this time!
