Checklist: Checked!

So now, as I was saying... my last weekend accomplishments:

I might add that these got accomplished while I was having refrigerator issues!
It was like house camping. Ice chests full of food I was trying to selvage.
Each day running to buy more ice to keep things cold.
Iye yie yie!
Fortunately we had friends over for dinner on Sunday t help us eat all the
food that we needed to cook-up!
I did mention how August is giving me more challenges that I want, didn't I?

I am so excited to get this puppy finished! Well, at least my part is finished.
I will let the longarm quilter do her magic on it.
It was a pattern by Nathalia at Piece n Quilt.
I left the period off after the word gift... but I am planning on putting a button there.

I also finished up my Amelia quilt with a pattern from Me and My Sister
called 10, 11, 12.
This was number 12.
Creative system for numbering. LOL.
Now, it is off to hang as a shop sample... but maybe after that, like in about 7 months, there will
be a little baby girl (?) that might need it!
Don't worry I have back up plans for a little boy grand-baby!


I had to share this cutie pie with you. My co-worker made a version of Yoyoville.
She changed it up a bit and also decided not to have yoyo's in all of the rows.
I just love it and the Lakehouse green background fabric she used too!

I love that every day is a gift quilt, that is on my "going to make someday" list. and the baby quilt could be used for a girl or boy, it is really blue. Love the yo yo quilt too

Oh fridge issues are such a pain. We went through that not so long ago ourselves.
Love the quilts! Just darling! Your coworker did a wonderful job as well!

I love all of those quilts, Sinta, especially the Me & My Sister one! Those colors just speak to me!

I'm also so sorry to hear about your fridge....between your fridge and my couch, we're a mess! :o) Glad you didn't lose that food, though!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Hi Sinta! I just saw your comment and indeed I am in your backyard. We love it here in Bass Lake! Wish I had seen you at Forks! Tonight we ate at Millers. We are staying at Wishon Point. I hear there is a wonderful quilt shop in Oakhurst!
I will be back to visit soon. Congratulations on becoming a new Grandma!!

What great finishes Sinta! You've been a very busy girl...making checks on my checklist is one of my favorite things!

Cheryl said...

I am expecting my first grandchild in about 6 1/2 months also! I need to get busy soon. Love your quilts, especially the 'present' for each day one.

These are all wonderful quilts. The yo-yo is so cute and I like No.12. Thanks for sharing.

Those are wonderful finishes in spite of all the other August problems.

The gift quilt is adorable and so clever.

Mary said...

These are all darling quilts! I really like the last one with some of the alternate blocks left plain. This is one of the best quilts I've seen with yo-yos. 12 is really cute, too, and I can picture it wrapped around a tiny baby. My daughter and her husband want to be surprised so I don't even start looking for fabrics till baby is born but I'm on the lookout for the perfect pattern.
