Hunter star baby quilt

This is the center of the quilt for my friend Amy.  I love the Accuquilt!  I could never cut so nicely, plus it notches the parts that fit together. Easy peasy!  I am using a tiny red border around this and then I am putting a white border with teddy bears embroidered on it.  I got redwork designs and will do them in red or aqua...not sure which yet.  

Maybe I will get a little more done while I'm home tomorrow.

Summer is here! Sort of...

After such a long cold winter, summer is finally here.  Even if the weather for this holiday weekend is a little chilly, it's nice to be outside all day and in the evening.  Yesterday I got this chiminea at Home Depot on sale for 70 dollars so this afternoon I put it together by myself!  Tonight, Kenny is fishing so I have my tea and book and will sit by the fire with the dogs.  I've been sewing a lot and will post that tomorrow. Hope you are all having fun this weekend!

Hunters star using my accuquilt!

Another one of my good friends from school has had a baby!  It's a lovely little girl.  Since it was a surprise as to the gender, I waited to make the quilt.  The colors in the nursery are aqua, white and gray.  I think I will do four of these blocks in the center and make embroidered blocks around the outside.  I have the cutest little vintage baby animals I have been yearning to use, so once I get the center done, I'll make those and a block with the baby's name and birth date on it.  That's the goal!  Happy Mother's Day all!
