It's been awhile...

Hi out there, it's been a long few weeks.

I haven't been sleeping well, which makes me tired during the day (thankfully I can take a nap or two). Which makes it hard to get on with the creative making of quilts and such.

I did make a bag. And I have made a few blocks for some "Auntie Quilts", but that's about all.

What's an "Auntie Quilt" you ask. On the Q&N forum, we all band together to make quilts for our members who are expecting a baby, a grand baby or a niece/nephew. Some of us make blocks, one person pieces, one quilts, one or more buy the backing and batting. It's a lot of fun.

And here is the FANTASTIC Aunty Quilt that my good friends made for me :)

I like white backgrounds, they look nice. But they don't go very well for our lifestyle. LOL, living in the mtns with animals and kids going in and out to play in the dirt and brush...umm,  no, white doesn't work. So the background for the stars is a nice yellow and the green and orange go with it so well! Green being my favorite color AND us not finding out if we are having a boy or girl till s/he gets here, it makes a great neutral quilt.

The stars all have baby animals or something similar, suitable for either boy or girl.

It's soooo cute!

And what's extra special.... my oldest sister is part of the Q&N forum, and she made some of the blocks :)

The back is a cute light green with a darker green line of bubbles every where. I thought this was a neat shot, with the sun streaming thru.


Speaking of the Q&N. The newest mystery quilt weekend will be March 17-18. You can buy the pattern here at the store. You can even buy a kit if you want. Jess's kits are beautiful! And we always have a thread going the weekend of the mystery, so that members can join in and share pictures and ask any questions.

I am also planning on getting something going for the Q&N blog, poor blog, it's been too long! I'm just tired and haven't gotten it all laid out yet. It will be a weekly post on various blocks.

Have a great day!
