On My Sewing Table This Morning...

This morning on my sewing table are two crib size quilts and a tote bag.

My daughter is co-hosting a baby shower for her best friend who is expecting her second baby girl.

Here is a sneak peak at "Little Miss Lily Marie". This is the stacked coins pattern that I used for "Sweet Savannah". It turns out so nicely and is very easy and fast to go together. I simply need to choose a color theme, cut 5 X 2 1/2 rectangles and start sewing. This one will be pink and white. I need to finish it this week so that it will be ready by November 6th in time for the baby shower.

Lily Marie's older sister is the ultimate "princess girl". I am going to make her a quilted totebag with her name on it. This is the fabric I plan to use for "Princess Ella's" totebag.

This is the second baby boy quilt that I started long ago! Its ready to quilt and I plan to do that soon. My plans for it are to donate it to my church's annual harvest day auction. Every year I regret not having a bed size quilt ready to donate, but this crib size quilt will have to do this year. My summer of 2011 quilt project would be a wonderful way to have a quilt ready to donate next year for harvest day. I will be making plans for that soon. Perhaps another nine patch a day? We'll see.

I'm also still working on the handquilting of the Grandma Quilt. I would love to be able to finish it before the end of the year so it can be placed on my 2010 Completed Quilts List, (on the side bar of my quilting blog HERE) but on the other hand, what a wonderful quilt to list as the first quilt completed in 2011!

Both those baby quilts are beautiful. I especially like the blue one.

The more I see the lovely quilts you make the more I have the urge to make one too. But I have so many things that must be finished before christmas, I think it will have to be something to look forward to in the new year.

What a wonderful gesture to donate one of your quilts to the church.

Everything is just lovely! The recipients are very lucky. :)

It's funny. You said in your comment on my blog (and thanks for that!) that you are jealous of people who can crochet and knit. I, in turn, am totally jealous of quilters! I have made a few quilts, but never anything as nice or professional-looking as what you've made. I just don't have the patience for it! (Or the ability to do all that accurate cutting!)

Hi Debbie,
How pretty. You always do wonderful work. Have a blessed week.

The list never ends. But, that handquilt item looks beautiful. As soon as the drywall mess is out of the basement I am setting up a handquilt for the winter, too. We'll have to cheer each other on.
