Rainbow Cat

I finally finished it. I just needed to add the binding from when I posted on February 8th, that I decided to tie the quilt.

Here's the front:

And the back:

I wanted to take pictures outside, but it looks like this:

This is #6 on my 2018 Q1 FAL list, and #2 on my American Patchwork and Quilting UFO list.

A Sweater

I seen a pattern on lion brands website that I just had to make for my little guy. After making some adjustments to the size using my mom's sweater wizard program I got busy knitting.

He loves it!

I just realized that this is my 400th post on my blog.

RAK Week Day 4

Today I started a guitar wall hanging for my dad. He has a bunch of guitars and I'm always making my mom stuff, thought I should make him something. I hope he likes it.

Rak Week Day 3

I had to work today. But after work I did manage to sew the charity quilt top together. It measures about 41" square. I ran out of the blue stripe fabric.

RAK Week Day 2

My niece had her baby boy at the end of January, 7 weeks early. He has almost gained a pound since being born and is doing good. I made this preemie hat and figured I should mail it, since we probably wont get to see him until at least March.

Now to come up with a RAK for tomorrow....

Random Acts of Kindness Week

This week is random acts of kindness week. What better way to start the week than working on a charity quilt.

Here's the fabric that was sent to me as part of the SBB heart builders group.

After much searching on Pinterest I decided on a disappearing 9 patch.

Here's the 9 patches:

I then cut them in quarters and made these blocks.

I have just over half the blocks done. I wish they would have sent more striped blue fabric. I think this quilt is going to turn out baby size.

Now to figure out what to do tomorrow for random acts of kindness week.

Making progress

During the super bowl, I went upstairs and basted a quilt while my husband was watching the game. Half way through I decided instead of quilting I wanted to tie the quilt. All I have is my home sewing machine and didn't feel like fighting to get it quilted.

It is all tied now just to decide on binding...

I Spy

I went to put some fabric in my I Spy box, and noticed it was a mess. So I spent a some time cutting up fabric scraps into usable sizes:

All put back in box. (Wish I would have taken a before picture.)
