Well, it's been a bit since I've blogged and it will be a bit longer. Hubby and I purchased a new home (new to us) last month and we are knee deep in painting, cleaning, getting ready to gut the bathroom and still need to decide what we are going to do with the kitchen.
I hope to be back to blogging and quilting early spring because i sincerely miss it.

So, it seems that my scraps are beginning to drive me a bit crazy (and that's a short trip!). Does anyone know of charities that take quality quilt scraps for donation quilts? I'd luv to donate some!
So here is my Jack-O-Lantern quilt all completed! I absolutely luv him! I luv him so much that i decided to make another one but in a smaller version so i can hang it on the wall ... here is my fabric :O)

Hope everyone has a GREAT week and I have my next quilt project out and ready to get cutting, so hopefully i'll have more posts in the near future :o)
P.S. My sister-in-law is also in the process of getting fabric for me to make her King size quilt, so that will be worked on in the near future too...

Today I worked on some quilts for the Neonatal ICU at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston. Terry posted about it the other day and it sounded like such a great thing to do ... so i put my personal quilting on hold to make a few for the babies! I have 2 done and fabric pulled to make another two. I hope to get some of the quilting on them done tomorrow while hubby is on the picket line ...

The pattern and fabric line is called "I Love Snow" by Shelly Comiskey for Henry Glass. It's the first flannel quilt i have made and it will be great to use this winter.

Here is some fabric I purchased to make a baby quilt for my girlfriends first grandbaby ... her name will be Ellie when she arrives in January ... I am going to use the Summer Squares pattern from Moda Bake Shop and plan to applique ELLIE in the big white strip and hopefully it will turn out ... I have never appliqued before, so this will be a first ... if you have any tips, PLEASE feel free to leave them!
