First Finished Quilting Project of 2008

Here it is - drum roll please - the first completed quilt of 2008. Rodger saw a man he used to work with and the man and his wife are expecting their second child so I whipped up this quilt.

I don't really do a lot fancy for baby quilts because I want them to be used and to be used they need to be washed - frequently. So it's a simple patch quilt that I machine quilted. It feels nice to finally have one in the finished column.

Our new addition is settling in. If he can sleep here:

He can sleep anywhere. lol

We're still working on where to set up his area. For the time being his water and food are in the living room and I really need to find another place for them.

I've made a log that I'm filling out every month with my quilting projects in it. I've "abandoned" a few projects that I've been working on for a while and frankly just don't care for the look of them anymore. I have a stack of blocks to send to the disaster relief girls and a bunch of ideas to take the place of the things I've gotten rid of.

I'm planning a sew in tomorrow and I have a charm quilt I want to put together. I think I'll probably send that on to the disaster relief girls too. I'm also planning to get the border on the mystery quilt I just finished up. Maybe I'll have some more pictures of finished projects in the next few days :0)

Until then, hugs and stitches. Jody
