this and that...things i've been working on

this is ruby my sweetheart! she LOVES when i pin a quilt. she thinks she's a helper. :) i just loved this picture! this quilt is being straight lined quilted right now. i'm going to try something new this year. i probably won't show my quilts until they are done. we'll see but i think last year i showed so much of them before hand that by the time i finished it was like who cares!! FINALLY!! :)
this is a purse/bag for the last birthday in january. my sister-in-law julie. i hope she likes this. i wanted to keep it but that's how i know it's a good gift! :)

i liked the stripe fabric so i got a close up so you could see the handle. oh ah!
wednesday night at church a friend asked me if i had finished the baby quilt i was making for her. i thought "oh snap" i hadn't even started it. luckily it's baby size and i got it to the point of being pinned and starting to stipple it by thursday night.

i love the sweetness of this quilt. i don't know if you can see the little duckies but i just LOVE them!

plus, sweet little bunnies.

the back is yellow ginham and an amy butler binding. a nice little punch! i LOVE this quilt. i am such a BOLD and BUSY kind of quilt person that this soft and subtle quilt is nice for a change. hope you have a FANTASTIC weekend. i'm going to be working A LOT these next few weeks so i'll see what i can get done at night. :)

  4. i don't think you showed your quilts too much....i loved every one every time. this little baby quilt is precious. i love the ducks...one of my all time favorite fabrics and one of the first ones i ever bought was like that but on tan. they look like a vintage repro fabric.
