Jacob's Quilt

A darling African fabric baby quilt for soon-to-arrive Baby Jacob.

4-patch blocks in gold & green with brown African motif fabric alternating with large single patch blocks of the fun safari animal print.  Machine quilted in an all-over meander/stipple pattern.

Sheer Window Scarf/Curtain

Made these for J's bedroom - 3 windows.  Blue is the exact match of the paint color on 2 walls in her room "Caribbean Sea"

We bought 9 5/8 yards of sheer fabric, cut it lengthwise and did a french seam to join the two lengths.  Then I used my rolled-hem foot on the machine to hem the long raw edge (close to 40 yards of hemming!).  We measured it out for the 3 windows and cut & roll-hemmed the short ends.
The fabric runs up into 3 loops across the top over a black rod - spread to cover and a bit of painters tape rolled backwards to hold the slippery fabric at the top of the rod.

J is very pleased with her new window treatments - definitely a grown-up room now!

Will's Quilt

Newest baby quilt from the Riverside Christian Church Quilt Ministry made with much love and many prayers for Baby Will. 

Machine pieced top in "Yellow Brick Road" pattern with a variety of fun fabrics and hand tied. Binding is diagonally pieced with two of the top fabrics and backing is soft blue fleece for cuddling.

Big brother Chase liked it too!  When a 2-year-old likes your work... I think that is a good sign.  :-)
