I am making a quilt for one of my daughter's co-workers. This is a second baby and they are choosing not to find out the sex of the baby. I have made several nursery rhyme quilts .It makes a neat gift particularly if they are not finding out if it is a boy or girl. I found this neat nursery rhyme fabric at Wal-mart. Now let me say up front I am not a fan of Wal-mart but I love this fabric and it is very reasonably priced there.
I wanted to do something with the log cabin idea so I fussy cut the fabric and put the motifs in the middle.
This picture did not turn out as well as I wanted. A couple of these need a few more logs. My vision is to make the blocks the same width and then fill in ala Gwen Marston with sawtooth or just blocks.
I would love some feedback.
I have these neat yellow fabric that I could do something to fill in with. Ok blog friends give me some good ideas.
We have had such bad weather this winter. Snow and ice yesterday and today. The man that lives here that I am married to took out the garbage this morning and promptly slipped on the icy steps!
I also made some fantastic chicken soup yesterday. So good that it is all gone. I added a box of Uncle Ben's wild rice along with the seasoning pack. I also added a can of cream of chicken soup. I like a thicker soup and this was really good. My sweet grandson cut up the carrots and celery for me. I was thinking about posting a recipe but I can't give you the proportions I used. I just added stuff until it looked and tasted right.
I have had such wonderful comments lately. Thanks to all of you that read my blog and a special thanks to those of you that comment.
