It's Been A While

but I have been busy. I decided I would get all my tops together and start sewing them..and I have...except at the same time I started two more. My goodness what is wrong with me?? I need to Focus!!
Well now I am going to Focus....on something else of course....
I have committed to sending some blocks and some baby quilts to this lady for her Quilting for Babes cause. Check out her blog and maybe you may want to donate also. I am pleased that it is for a Canadian Hospital.
Next up are two WIP by my BFF. One is from a free BOM from Gail Pan Designs...(I think I have one more block to do) and the other is one she is doing in her Quilt Guild in New Brunswick. Love it!!
My BFF does not think she does good work...ha ha..you should see her painting...she is quite the artistic gal.

Have a Great Day

Glad you like the wips. The bottom photo is a pattern called "Thirty Something" by Ann Champion from Ohio. Her pattern is in the July/August 2009 of "Quiltmaker" magazine. Our guild got permission to teach her design in one of our Saturday Workshops. Each was different. It was amazing to see how fabric choices gave each one a different look. I decided to use scrap fabrics I had. I have since put on the final border and have it now on my quilt frame to hand quilt.When I look at the quilt with those colors I think of my grandaughter Paislee and candy. So I call it "Paislee's Candy" for my own personnal name choice .It is a fun pattern to do. The Gail Pan bom is on hold for now till I decide how to finish the borders.Next week I am hoping to start 2 baby quilts from a pattern and fabric by Ann Sutton, "Bunnyhill Designs" called Chelsea Manor. Our neice is having twins(boy/girl).Should be fun breaking away from the traditional baby colors to using browns. Thaks again for posting the pics. Sure was a surprize.
