It's been a slow week for me so far.  After too much physical work over the 3-day weekend, I'm feeling more like myself today.

There's nothing like bright fabrics to make me smile and feel good about things again.  I love making small quilts for kids, but our family has no little ones until great-grandbabies come along.

Here's a little quilt I'm working on for a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in St Louis.  

This is simply 5" squares framed with 2" strips of solid cotton.  The centers are from the Sweet Tooth fabric line.  I think the fabric is cute for a young boy or girl.  I had the border fabric and the solid strips in my stash.  Once I decide on a backing it will be ready to be quilted.  I'm thinking of making a matching pillowcase to go along with the quilt.

I recently picked up the first issue of Quilting Quickly and got so much inspiration from the beautiful projects I feel like a new quilter again!  I

Wishing you a wonderful day of quilting....  Barb

  1. That is such a lovely pattern for a childs quilt, I would love to use this idea for quilts for the grand children, at some point in the future, if that's alright with you.

    Enjoy your quilting,
