This is Smudge, the short-haired black cat who adopted us. Her mama dropped her off in the back yard and she “melted” our hearts.. She has come to visit me every morning as I sit at the computer surfing the internet.. Yes, I think she is learning to read… or is it the little arrow that she loves?
Part of my computer wanderings led me to those BIG BLOCKs…OR one block quilts.. I used the 10 inch half hexi template from Missouri Quilt Company. com. These finish at 33 x 33 inches without any borders.. I can see them in baby colors or flannel. Just right for that New Born!!
Or make 4 of them and have a nice size lap quilt!! 6 should make a twin and 12 a double bed size. What a fast way to make a top…now to get it sandwiched and quilted!!
Speaking of baby quilts, I gotta get one done for a special lady who donates them all to Cardinal Glennon PICU down in St Louis, Mo. area. Her Grandson is a survivor of a “shaken Baby” incident…. Thanks to the staff and doctors at the afore mentioned ICU. If ya want to help out, just leave a comment and I’ll get the particulars to you.
This one will be on its way to her this coming week. And I have another needing some backing fabric & quilting that should be finished soon. Measures 48 X 40 (I think) Crib size for sure.
Yes, I got side tracked and the Garden is being neglected… I am waiting for warmer temps and more time… The PICU quilts just had to be done and sent first. It’s MY priorities and those little ones needed a quilty hug.
SnIL had his birthday again this year…. lots of cake & ice cream, but NO PICTURES. He thinks 44 is too old for a fuss to be made.. (we did sing Happy Birthday to him among all his protesting).
That is the way it is in My world — GRANNY
