Baby Jackson's Quilt

On May 2nd, our family welcomed a new member ... Jackson Alexander ... and he is absolutely adorable ;O) He lives in California, so all of us here in Ohio won't get to 'meet' him for a bit, but we luv him just the same :O)

Here is the quilt that I made for him ... it is so bright and cheery and so fun. This is a close-up and you can somewhat see the quilting ... it's all sports ... balls, bats and baseball mits ... it's just perfect for a boy...

This is a close-up of the back ... if you click on the picture you get a better view of the quilting.
The pattern i used is Boxed In By KarrieLyn of Freckled Whimsey ... you can also find the pattern on Moda Bake Shop HERE ... i've made a few quilts using this pattern and its just a great pattern. I used bright colors from random lines ...

Wish I Had More Fabric

Hello...happy week-end! So glad it is here. There hasn't been much going on on the sewing front ... but i do have 2 quilts that need binding and a blue and white quilt that i tore somewhat apart that needs to be put back together ... they are calling for rain for the next 6 days, so i'm sure i'll find time to sew

So...have you ever purchased fabric, set it aside, then made a quilt out of it that you absolutely loved ... and wished you had bought tons of the fabric? I'm that way with Decadent Victorian by Moda ... it's so pretty i wish i had bought yardage of it, but i only bought a jellyroll and some sage green yardage ... I did see a 5" jellyroll consisting of 36 cuts for $63 on ebay ... that equals 5 yards of fabric, but that seems like alot...

Here is the quilt i did a few years ago in decadent victorian ... i just wuv it :O) close up ...

Hope it is sunny, warm and dry where you are.

Let me just start by saying i'm a Michigan fan, so this billboard directed at Ohio State's football coach, Jim Tressel is rather comical to me :O) (besides that, his vests drive me nuts...too much of a pretty boy)
