I figured now was the perfect time to post about the quilts I made for my 4 grandkids back in December of 2012 (2 boys — Mason and Easton and 2 girls — Blake and Tatum). Now is the perfect time to post because I just pulled these pictures out because I am going to be making a few more and I needed to refer to the picture for guidance! Continue reading →
I designed this quilt pattern for my 4th grandchild – Tatum! She was born in January 2013.

Recently I decided to go through this bin and see what I could come up with. Continue reading →
When I was initially picking out fabrics for Blake’s baby quilt (before I had decided on the pattern) I was buying pink and green, along with a few purple fabrics that were too adorable. While I used the pink and green fabrics in Blake’s crib-sized baby quilt, I was left not quite knowing what to do with the purples. That is when I came up with the idea for this simple stroller quilt. Continue reading →
