ready for binding

I just finished up the quilting on L's baby quilt.


I will probably put it away for a bit so I can work on quilting and binding a quilt for my Grandpa's 85th birthday. My mom made the top and sent it out for me to quilt; it's going to be signed by guests at his party in a couple weeks.

I have been busy the last little while with buying school supplies and getting my boys into school. It is adding some much needed structure to our family and hopefully everyone will be fully adjusted to the new schedule soon.

A couple weeks ago I went with the family to First Friday where we saw Jacquie's quilt show and Lacey's exhibit, too. It was such a fun night out, and I really enjoyed it. All of the quilts and paintings were wonderful.

I put together a dresser for my baby girl (finally) and decided to store some of my fabric in the bins where her clothes used to be. I had fun folding up and color sorting all my smaller pieces of quilt fabric:


They used to be all crammed in one big blue bin and I think this is a big improvement!

I so love your quilt. I have those same fabrics and have been toying and toying with quilt designs for them. You used them perfectly.
