A few finished projects

Although we have been spending more time outside and enjoying the beautiful days, I HAVE been working on a few projects.  First off....a blankie for baby Colton.  I should have known he would come early, but for some reason I just got it done.  I actually didn't do a lot on this one.  Both the front and the back were a panel---even the chenille applique.  So I only had to quilt and bind it.  BUT I still love it.  I used a receiving blanket for the binding and I LOVE the stries.   If you don't know how to sew very well head over to JoAnns and try one of these cute panels--they 4 different designs in both boy and girl colors--just a suggestion. 
Next up on the list...
I started this 9 patch tablerunner at the craft retreat and finally finished it.  I made it from scaps of about everything I have ever made:)  The worst part is that I pieced the binding with 5 inch pieces.  It looks bad and was a PAIN to sew through all of those seams.  Live and learn I guess. 

Then it was back to making receiving blankets.  Todd's cousin had a baby girl recently and one of his high school friends will be having a boy soon.  SOOOO I took advantage of JoAnn's sale on flannel (2 bucks a yard---yay!!!) and got going.

I love love love this fabric---who can resist birdies????  I also finished 2 quilt tops for QUILTS FOR KIDS, but I will wait until they are quilted to share.  PHEWWWW  I guess I did get something done yesterday:)

Wow, I wish that I could sew! You and Marcie are always making cute things. Hopefully having the baby will motivate me to learn to sew. I bet it feels nice to complete projects!
