    Yea for a Franky Sandwich!
    Can't wait to see him at the finale!!!!

    Slow progress on Franky as I was still in cross stitching mode and then got the flu.

    But, the central Franky square is almost done. I have even done a decorative stitch to define the arms and legs. Just need to stitch his neck bolts then I can move on to the surrounding blocks.
    Working for a living interferes with fun, but it pays for it.

Size:  1.48 MBI made a couple of quilts a few years back when I was just starting to quilt, they are inspired by things my girls loved at the time, like flowers and dogs. Let me know what you ladies think.

Size:  1.48 MBI thought I had posted this already. Anyway, I made a couple of quilts when I first started, these were designed with flowers and this little dog as they were things my girls loved at the time, the polka dots were my fabric of choice and I wanted something that they could use for a long time. Let me know what you think!

    aww, your pink, black and white quilt is very cute! love the contrast and that it's all polka dots!

    and its a good thing that you ladies posted recently, because it reminded me that I forgot to update you on the sheep and owl baby quilt. I finished it on Sunday and it's now being enjoyed by my friend's baby! :-)

    FuzzyKitty ... absolutely adorable!!!!! I'll skip on over and check out the other link. I'm sure your friend is very appreciative and it will be a keeper for baby Mogen!

    HappyKidsHappyLife ... That`s a cute quilt ... now maybe you`ll join us on this thread and make something based on character(s) that your kids are into now. Or like many of the others on this thread, something that the quilter is into!

    Works4Me ... Glad that you have been able to get back to Franky! I bet that he has enjoyed watching over you as you worked on your other projects. Looking forward to seeing him again soon!!!

    Aww, thanks! and hehe, I knew I forgot something...the translation! "Mögen Deine Träume Dich beflügen!" is German for "May your dreams lend you wings!" I anonymized the baby's name on the fabric card in the owl's mouth above the label (hence the strange thick black line), wasn't sure if mom and dad wanted it posted or not.

    I bet you had a laugh on me!
    And to think I saw that black line ... and didnt clue in!

    It's still a specially thought thru gift for the Baby ... and certainly is going to be a keeper.
    Will the Mom use it? Or keep it for a show quilt only?

    hehe.

    Yep, she's already using it...I made it very clear that the baby is allowed to get the quilt dirty and that it's meant to be used and loved. :-) He has already been laying on it checking out all the colors and patterns...she said the first time he did so was the longest he had ever laid on his stomach alone without crying, so I guess he approves. :-)

    What a grand story and memory of it being used!
    I gave my Ted E. Bear quilt to a baby, and made it clear it was to be used.
    She told me oh yes .... and when I checked another time, I found out that yes, they use it ... though when it's on the floor, they cover it with a sheet, to keep it clean! Well, at least it's being used!
