Baby Quilts and Sunflower Quilt...

I had the most fun working on the twin baby girl quilts...

Aren't the names wonderful.

Sorry, but I am kinda tired of unisex names.

Sweet pink

Sweet green

The twins great grandmother came by yesterday and picked them up.  She is an old friend from my early Christian fellowship days
and we had the sweetest visit..
What a blessing to have "older" ladies in my life 
that have been wonderful role models.

And here is the Moda Bake Shop tutorial that I usesd...

Sunflower quilt progress....

Blessings all,

Sour Dough Quilt progress.....slow !!!.

While working on the twin baby quilts, I had to stop to shop for more fabric.
So, I pulled out my Sour Dough quilt blocks to count them and decided to 
work on a few more.

Here is my progress
and I am really liking the layout that I think I will use.

You can really see the layout design from a distance.

Here it is a bit closer...

Don't you just love the daisies????

and here is a single 8" block...

for a great week
full of "opportunities"
to share our Lord's
precious love!!

Quilting and gardening...

I have been busy the past week with many things...
Cliff has had a stomach bug that hit him twice, so we have been staying in and 
taking care of him, eating lightly and listening to a lot of needed rain!!

My high school girlfriend brought over some fabric for me to make TWO quilts for her
new grand daughters..yes, two...her only daughter is expecting twin girls!!
Here is her lovely fabric...

pictures of the quilts later.

While watching/listening to the rain, I have been working on my sunflower quilt.

I decided to machine quilt the sashing to hold all in place

machine embellish the border

and hand quilt each sunflower

and tack the center of each...

What do you think?

A few garden pics too...
