Playing

I've been playing with pretty colors lately.
Pretty colors of fabric, that is.
I love, love, love the smooth soft feel of pure cotton fabric.
And the luscious prints just waiting to be crafted into something beautiful.
Here's some of the latest creations for our next little one coming....



Aliens racing across the quilt (bad photo)Rocket ships shooting off to the stars....(do we see a pattern here?)Fun, bright colors for our little guy.

I wish blogger had the sense of touch-they are so soft and yummy! It's such a pleasure to create pretty things with such pretty fabrics!

Okay these are done-it's time to find some more to play with!

Oh they are lovely! You always do a great job!

Hey I have a quilting question...I have saved all of my kids baby clothes and wanted to make a quilt out of them for each.

Well, since I dont sew I was just cuting them into squares and planned to sew them together and as the back of the quilt I bought fleece blankets. So my question is..what type of batting do I use and is what is the easiest way to finish the edge for a non sewer :)

wow. I'm always in awe of quilt-masters as yourself. What a gift to have--taking little bits of fabric and making it into a treasure!
Beautiful!

Beee-autiful! My youngest decided she would enter a quilt in the county fair this year in Safford. She is brand spankin' new to the craft but that's not slowing her down! Pres. Uchdorf is correct; we all have an instinct to be creative. (I know those are not his exact words but he right!) Anyway...I love your creativeness.

They're beautiful! So...how do you do it? Are they hand-quilted? They look wonderful.

these were even prettier in person. Just gorgeous. Baby Brooks is a lucky guy! I really do think you could sell these....the question is could you sell them to make up all the hard work that goes into them?
