GONE BABY, GONE!

 Oh how much fun is it to send off surprises to special people!  They don't know they are getting these in the mail!


I have been making these two quilts for twin boys...great great nephews...born in April of this year.


I also decided to send a couple of other quilts along to complete my culling of quilts.


I don't know about you, but passing quilts on, even though it is hard to part
with them gives one a very special feeling.


I finally figured out the label thing.  Oh goodness why does it take me so long to learn things?   My private teacher Helen too five minutes and there it was, a label.


So, away I went and made four of them in minutes.  Next, I am going to do the freezer paper thing.  The fabric from the
purchased quilt label package was very
stiff, so I had to machine sew it on the
quilt.

 I am really pleased how it all turned out.


I returned home from dentist, who is in the city, driving such an exotic car that I didn't know what kind it was.  Tells you where the money is doesn't it?


Anyway, he is a great dentist, so an implant is on the way for my
dazzling smile.


Anyway, I returned home to  a lovely package of 1930s fabrics from Shay in Australia.  (Quilting in my Pyjamas for those that don't know) and  oh my, I am through with all my stash busting for now.  I am going to make something with what Shay sent and add (Quilt On) Bev's fabrics also.


Making a quilt larger than 65-70" is a challenge for quilting on the machine.  But, there is a Mennonite group on my way home, so I am asking on Tuesday when travelling once again to the city, if they take the quilts to hand quilt.  Would that not be something?
