Elephants on Parade

I can finally share the quilt I made- number 1 on this list. Gifted it to my sister and brother in law. My sister loves elephants.

A label I made for the back with my embroidery machine. My machine gave me hardly any trouble!! (need to practice more)

Pattern is on old quilt along, Elephants on Parade.

ABC Quilt

I finished this way back in August. As soon as it was done my youngest-he's 2- took the quilt from me and has been cuddling with it ever since. The whole time I was making it he would come check and let me know this one was his. With the completion of this quilt all 5 of my children now have their own quilts. Time to figure out what I want to make for me. (I have yet to make a quilt for myself).

Trying to get a picture of the quilt and Branson is right there ready to grab his quilt.

The label for the back. It didn't turn out quite like I had envisioned, but I'm still learning about my embroidery machine.

Linking up to Amanda's and Sarah's.

My list of sewing projects...

Over at She can quilt, they are having a FAL (Finish A-Long). And they are asking everyone to link up their list of projects that you wish to complete in the next 3 months.

I started going through all my sewing related projects and I made quite a list. In no particular order:

1. Complete the binding on a baby quilt that is for a gift. I hope to have this completed by next weekend.

(Finished, gifted and blogged.

2. Make a baby quilt for my niece. She is pregnant with her first baby. (Progress)

3. I want to make this card wallet for me.

4. Continue working on My Splendid Sampler. I have around 30 of the 60+ blocks that have been released.

5. I would love to get my rainbow cat quilt done.

6. Get this I spy quilt top done and put together. I participated in an I spy swap at Val's Quilting Studio this summer. I took up 2 spots and this is about half of my blocks I got back.

7. Get this car quilt done for my youngest. I started this quite a while ago and it keeps getting put at the end of my list.

8. My husband wants me to make a couple pillowcases from this fabric for gifts. (Done and blogged.)

9. My MIL asked me to embroider her SIL grandkids on this pillowcase to give to her.

10. I made this halloween costume for my youngest son last year. I know it will still fit him. So my plan is to stitch done the letters and wash it so he can use it again.

11. Get all my Christmas gifts done!! Lots of them going on. That is why my blog has been so quiet.

12. Make a wall quilt from this pattern to hang in my mom's knitting room.

I have lots more projects I would love to do, but this is quite a list to tackle.
