Lori is on vacation so I am starting the thread this month.

I hope to have something to post soon, but am still getting resettled from coming back from the Magnolia Quilt Retreat last weekend.

Hope to see lots of great posts this month from everyone... Chris

Guess I need to list everyone who finishes a project too!

I made this for my husband's cousin's daughter for a bridal shower gift. Thought the bride could use this cover (for a composition notebook) to keep info for her wedding in.

Chris I answered your pm a couple of days ago. Did it not send?

I am having sewing machine problems, top thread keeps breaking but I managed to finish 3 slipcovers for the baby changing table at church. Approx 4 yd of fabric used.

Nice idea for the bride to be. At least her notes will all be in one place!!!
Those are cute changing mats. Good idea. Love the bird fabric. How are you making the mats? Size? Waterproof lining???

Nice job on the notebook, STM! The colors are very pretty

Motquilter- great idea for the covers, they will be wel used in the nursery.

I finished DS's graduation quilt finally! I had to buy a little more black for the triangle border but all the rest was stash.

Beautiful quilt, Toryam ... I'm sure DS will treasure it always Smile

This is a quilt top I just finished to raffle for the Relay For Life I will be participating in next month Smile

Each cancer ribbon is represented, as well as "all cancers" and "honors caregivers". It was a project of love AND therapy... being newly diagnosed with CLL, this offered me an opportunity to focus on a positive and not so much about myself ... I'm hoping it will raise LOTSA funds for RFL.

Being that it's a quilt with much love, I just HAD to share my batiks stash ... not an easy task for me ... but sometimes it's better to give than receive (and I've received so very much).


2014 ... I wish you good health, love, peace and QUILTING!

It's seems like so long ago since I last posted. Just got back from Ann Arbor for my B-I-L's kidney transplant from my DD!!! Amazing- both are doing great! We brought our DD home to Ohio just 48 hours after surgery and my B-I-L goes home today (on the third day after surgery)!!! So blessed!

So here is the Sunny lanes quilt I made for my brother-in-law and fm quilted on my regular Janome. It is a really large lap quilt for him to snuggle up in as he recuperates.

Been a while since I posted to this thread. I always come here tho and admire all the work but sometimes I wish you could click on a picture to enlarge it. This is the case with your quilt Pat. It looks awesome.

I had a top that I had put together several months ago and finally figured out how I wanted to quilt it. It was intended to be a baby quilt but is big enough to be a toddlers quilt. The picture is kind of dark but we tried several times for a better one with no luck and didn't feel like I could push hubby for another one. Used up a bunch of flannel for this one!

Margie- good to see you here on this thread! I've been away quite a bit the last couple months getting ready for the kidney transplant. But if you click on the Flickr link below my name, you can see the Sunny Lanes quilt in a much larger version!

Love your flannel log cabin!

Great items everyone!

Finally have my pictures to post. Hope it works as I have a new computer and everything is so much more complicated.

Have 3 string tops that I put together for QWL. Found this hunk of quilting flannel in the cabinet and it was just the right firmness to go with the string blocks & enough to do 3 tops... Chris

I'm not going to get my teddy bear quilt finished by the end of the month - especially if I don't get off this computer. The baby will be one year old on June 1st. I'm trying to make it a little larger now.

This thread is my all time favorite but has been quiet this month. Great job so far on the completed items ladies.

I'm just getting in under the wire for this month. I got this quilt done for one of my GDs. I had the top done for a few years and I picked up the backing when we were in Branson for the COF last year. I did have to buy the batting and some more material for the binding, but the rest all came from my stash. The top is fabric left over from another quilt top I made.

Oh!!! I really didn't realize that! Guess I'm having an old age moment!!! Wink

Wow!! Thank you!!! I am feverishly working on 3 baby girl quilts and two lap quilts that need to be finished this month so, since I have only started the first baby quilt,I will be putting my pedal to the metal. Hopefully I will have more than 1 finish to show for it!

Thanks so much!!! This gives me the encouragement I needed to get busy!
