WOW - March 13, 2013

Well remember last week I said I would not start any new projects until I finished all my UFO’s.  That very next day my daughter asked me if I would make two baby quilts for a special teacher of hers. She just had twins and has been experiencing a lot of heath problem.  So of course I started two new projects. 

I used the scraps of one of my UFO’s to make this baby quilt top. 
I have been seeing everyone make the scrappy trip around the world quilts and have wanted to try one.  So I pulled out a fat quarter bundle and some additional prints from my stash and came up with this top.  I still have a border I’m going to put on this.  

At the end of March I’m attending a three day class from Sue Spargo.  I’m very excited and I picked up my supply kit from the shop and I have homework to do.  We have to applique the leaves to the back for the class and we will be learning a different embellishment for each one over the three day class.  So I got a few done yesterday while waiting for my son at his driver’s education class.

Lastly I just want to brag about my wonderful talented daughter.  This is her presentation board for her final line she is doing for school.  She has decided to do couture lingerie and will be making each item on this board next quarter.  I will have to show you when she gets them completed.

Have a great week.




  1. First of all your quilts are gorgeous.. Now your daughter's sketches of her work is amazing. I am sure you are a proud Mom. I too have a granddaughter in fashion at University. Check out my blog to see her designs. I love young talent and am looking forward to seeing more of your daughter's work.

  2. Lisa, it's been a long time since I have stopped by your blog. I love the two baby quilts!! So cute. I can't wait to see what you do with your class from Sue. How fun!!

  3. Thank you for your comment on my blog. You asked how many hours I sew. I try to sew in my spare time (after housework etc. but we don't have a television, and of course it's still winter, perhaps that helps?
    I love the fabrics you are using! Lovely to be proud of such a daughter! You will love the class with Sue, I am sure.
