I'm back! And a baby quilt for Theo

Yes, it has been a long time since I have posted!  I have good excuses!  We were in Disney - and while we were there got to extend our trip by 5 more days!  Then when we got home we adopted a puppy!  Beautiful Jasmine (yup, we're a Disney family all the way).  She is a black standard poodle (no shedding - yay!)  The first few weeks were very time consuming - I had to watch Jasmine every second - so there was very little sewing going on!

But, some exciting things happened at the end of October.  Two of my friends were blessed to be chosen as adoptive Mamas (within 2 days of each other - I was so stressed!)  Baby Theo was born and placed with a very good friend of mine from college and 2 days later Baby Sofia was born and placed with my friend in Florida!  So I had to get moving on some quilts!

I chose a "wonky log cabin" block for baby Theo's quilt.  His mom loves bright colors, so I chose orange and teal.  I bought the fabric a while ago, I just couldn't decide on the design.  This quilt was a major labor of love.  I don't know if I'll be doing this design again any time soon!  Ironing after every seam was very tedious.  But, I finally finished it and I really love how it turned out!  Another one that my husband says he wishes could be kept at our house :)

I already decided on a design for Sofia's quilt, and I know the colors I want - I am going out on Black Friday to get some deals on fabric!  Also on the docket is a lap quilt for Gracie's preschool teacher for Christmas and another quilt I need to finish for Christmas time too!  I also have a few homemade gifts I want to make too... I better get moving :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
