    I finished another baby quilt for DS, his child is due soon. I used the Bernina 930 for quilting and White Rotary treadle for the binding on both quilts.
    I found a Cars panel that features, Mater the tow truck and McQueen the race car. For the backing I used an all over print with MCQueen and the binding is light blue with all of the vehicles in the movie.
    I did lots of FM quilting outlining the characters and played with filler quilting, it was fun.

    Sharon, that's so cute! Is this quilt for the same grandchild that is due or is this for another grandbaby?
    I like the cars!

    Monica,
    Thank you, I've been having fun making baby quilts for my son and his sweet gf.
    I've got a bad case of bronchitis again, so I'm getting lots of sewing done since the coughing keeps me awake. I've been finishing up some UFOs.
    Same baby, just wanted a smaller quilt that they can wrap the baby up in without it being as huge as the toddler size quilt. I showed it to them tonight, they loved it!! I bought the fabrics last year intending it for baby quilt for a foster baby.

    Oh, what cute baby quilts, Sharon. I loved the cars movie.... watched it with my greatDGD. She loved it, too. Get better soon. Bronchitis is not fun.

    Thanks Jean (aka nanna up north). I was having fun just doodling with my sewing machine. I'm getting better not as much coughing.

    I know I have been away for a while but, with all the bad weather but I have tried to keep busy sewing. So wanted to show you what I have done. The tote bags I made and sold so I could buy more material. The little girl quilt I just had fun with this one.

    Trish, The little girls quilt is cute! Are you going to just quilt around the hearts and girls in an echo effect? The cross star is pretty too. Great idea with the bags. Where I live in CA, one has to bring their own bags for grocery items. The quilted bags are a great idea since they can be washed.

    Yes that is how I am going to quilt the little girls and maybe quilt a heart in the center of the bigger heart. Thanks for looking.

    Oh my, Trish, you have been busy. I love the idea of using a quilt block on your quilted bags. I never know what to do with leftover blocks. I made a few into potholders but some are just too big. And the quilts are so nice..... really pretty arrangement on the blue quilt. And the little girls and hearts are just too cute. It looks like you're making good use of your time in this cold weather.

    Trish,
    You've been very busy! Thanks for sharing your pictures. The tote bags are great. I think the little girls and hearts is my favorite.
    I've made quite a few potholders with left over/goofed up quilt blocks.

    Well, I have to show off the quilt my 1947 FW and I finished today. The blocks were sewn with the FW and the colored squares were hand stitched down. But, it's done.... it took a long time. This one is for my DD and her DH for their 25th wedding anniversary.

    Jean what a wonderful cathedral quilt you have made. DD and DH will love it. You have inspired me to make one for myself. Nice work.

    Jean, lots of work in this one. But, it is soooo pretty. DD and DH will love it also because you made it for them.
    I'd say you put the little FW to the test and she came through with pretty colors. Really nice work.

    Thanks Glenn. Thanks Trish. You all are too kind.

    Yes this one is labor intensive..... so keep that in mind if you start one, Glenn. Mine has 25 rows, 22 blocks across..... 550 blocks. I figured that it took about 40 yards of muslin. The color squares were from my stash. It's on a queen sized bed.

    Thank you vintagemotif, frudemoo, and Monroe. I so appreciate your compliments.

    This was a 'have to' quilt. My mother-in-law made us a quilt for our 25th anniversary.... now I've made one for my DD and her DH.... but I think that's the end of that tradition. My DD says that no way she's making a quilt for my DGD.... I'll probably have to do that one, too.

    Nanna-up-north,
    Your Cathedral Window quilt is lovely! I'll bet it weighs a ton too.

    What a lovely quilt, Ddale. I have a special love for log cabin quilts. That's the block I started with so many years ago. And yours is so bright. Which one of your vintage machines did you use? We like to know that stuff.
