May Finishes 2012

Can you believe that May is over?  Where did the time go?  This has been a very busy month just like they all are for me but I did manage to get some sewing therapy in this week.  I finally completed my Schnibbles quilt  during the month of May and finished March's too.  I'm finally going to be able to enter the parade YAY.  Check out the beauties at Pink Pincushion and A Quilting Life.  Maybe I'll start on April's one of these days, haha. is a few pics of my New FO's, A Year of Schnibbles, Doll Quilt Swap finish for June (yep early) and a cute little dress for Sasha.  

The fabric is Friendship by Moda and it's quilted in a loopy meander with off white  Glide.  I really love this one it's so pretty!

Don't ya just love the pink, blue and grey's just right for a new baby or to decorate a wall in babies room.  Sorry I can't think of the fabric line right this minute but it sure is purty!

My niece - Melissa borrowed my flag quilt that my BFF Becky made for me last Summer and has been holding it hostage since last Fall.  So in able to get it back I had to make one for her.  Here you go Melissa you little thief  sweetheart.

Becky made an extra flag quilt for me in a different style and I finished binding it yesterday.  I will proudly display these awesome quilts from a very good friend.  Thanks, Becky!!!

Here is my doll quilt for June for Meg.  The theme is  something old, new borrowed and blue.  So the fabric is Retro which equals old looking, but it's new so that takes care of the old/new thing.  Borrowed well, I saw one similar at a quilt show I went to in Henderson Nevada a couple of months ago and made my own version of it.  Blue is the border.  I sure hopes she likes it.  It feels likes Summer to me.

When I was at Lets Quilt last week I happened to spy these beauties hanging on the wall by the talented Ms. Marilyn Badger.  I snapped a few quick photos then went back to work.  She is such an inspiration!  Check out the fabric painting she did on these.

Last but not least... Sasha called Grandma and said it was her preschool graduation and she needed a new dress....with flowers....and pink.  Preschool graduation was Monday, Sasha  called Grandma on Friday. Grandma can sew fast when she is properly motivated.  Here is a pix of Ms. Sasha in her new dress.

Have a Happy and Safe June.
