I've been a busy chick - at night of course once A is asleep. And Sean said he can't watch his Sopranos while I sew because it's too loud. That he can only watch sports. hee hee.
Finished A's receiving blanket quilt. Pieced by hand - finished on machine. Back is done with curtain fabric and extra blankets. Binding with Boppy cover material. Perfect size for Judy!

My in-laws live in Ventura so we went there to visit this past weekend. On Sunday, Sean passes out and A goes down for nap - so I jump in the car and use the navigator on my phone to find the nearest quilt shop. Quilt Ventura! They have a huge sale section in the back and I find a few bolts from the same line. Yay! So I buy 2 yards of each - enough for a dress for A, quilt for my sis, and maybe another quilt for...me?
AmandaJean totally inspired me to get into this quilting thing - so I'm looking around online for fabric and I find Tanya Whelan's Darla line. And I friggin buy $80 worth...2 charm packs and 26 (yes, 26!) fat quarters from Lanie Jane Fabrics. She does special orders on her Etsy page. So here is my little stack of pieced squares and the rest of the cut pieces waiting for me to get busy.
