A bunch at once

Since this is a new blog for just me and my crafting (my other is for my Daughter) I have not put on all of my projects quite yet, but am slowly working on it.  These are preliminary pictures of a lot of my stuff.  I have all of the quilts shown now finished but have not taken "finished" pictures of them yet.  I will plan to enlist my husband to help me with that soon.  But for the time being, these will have to do.

This is the first quilt that I completed.  It is on it's way to be donated to the NICU in our local hospital.  When my daughter was born she was in the NICU for 5 days and received a quilt while she was there.  That was such a glimmer of happiness during the hard days that we encountered.   I wanted to give that to other moms so I asked my mother in law for help.  Being a quilter for last 30 plus years I knew she was the one to turn to.  This is the reason I decided to start quilting.


The first quilt that I made for myself.

Another quilt for the hospital.  Try to ignore the spot in the middle.  It was wet from me trying to get a chocolate hand print, graciously put on by my daughter, off of it.

This was the first bag that I made.  I am happy with how it turned out, and now we use it as a swimming bag for swimming lessons each week.



This quilt was made for my daughter for her 1st birthday.  It screams "little Girl" and that is exactly what I was hoping for!


Yet another quilt for the hospital.
