    It has been about a week before Christmas since I have stepped foot into my studio to do anything sewing related. Well I finally got out there to do work on a project.

    So here is the fruits of my effort, although I was taking some pretty strong pain meds for my back (that might explain the use of colors and a few miss matched points) I think it turned out somewhat okay. :lol: All that is left is sandwiching the top and quilting.

    This is for my newborn great nephew I used the basic pattern from the "Quilt for Kids".

    Nice job. I like that blue fabric...looks like a mosaic.
    I have had that fabric for sometime now (2 years or so) and I picked it up at my local Hancock Fabrics for 85% off. I ended up buying about 6 or so yards of it along with a ton of other fabrics.

    I have had the hardest time trying to use that color in anything. I am glad it worked for what I used it for. I was seeing double there for a little bit! :lol:

    I did get to sandwich it today along with being midways through with the quilting before I had to quit this afternoon. Boy it feels good to be using my treadle again! :thumbup:

    Hopefully I will be able to finish quilting and binding it tomorrow and I will have more photos of the finished project.

    LOL That makes two of us!! :lol: :lol:

    I am really surprised that I was able to get it all out of my stash. Since I am just in the beginning stages of quilting I have not had the time to build a stash like the ones that you guys have floating around. Some of you have a complete Hancock Fabrics in your sewing rooms! :mrgreen: :lol:

    But I suppose it is just like anything else it takes time to build one up.

    I did however slip back out to the studio and finished the quilt up, now all thats left is to wash it and take photos of it. And I think on this one since its a gift and it is going several states away to my Grand Nephew (damn I am getting old) I want to do a label for it. What do you all recommend for doing that.

    I have embroidery floss and the cloth that you use for counted cross stitch would that be sufficient to do the job?

    Help the brother out I am on another round of meds LOL!! :lol: :lol:

    Horray! You got to sew again, feels good, huh? I go into withdrawals if I can't sew for a few days. :lol:

    Looks great!

    Recognized the pattern right off & your nephew is going to love it. Don't you feel warm inside when you make a child smile?
