Nimble Thimbles and a Small Quilt Auction Quilt!
I am prepped and mostly ready for camp. I have packed up Talkin' Turkey and Garden Party. I am hoping to work on a baby quilt or two as well but have nothing prepped yet and we leave in the morning. I just found out that my cousin Ashley had a baby boy and he needs a Chicago Bears quilt...they live in Wisconsin but daddy is a Bears fan. Blasphemy but I will do it. Another past Deaf student also had a little boy and they are into owls so I ordered owls and bears fabric today. I also found out Suli is having TWINS! So I will have more honorary nephews or nieces! And my adopted newhew's mama decided to have a baby and keep it...I think seeing our guy growing up made her realize she did want a little one so I need to make a quilt for her girl too! And a coworker is pregnant with her first (And a fellow quilter too--Tiffany--but she is gonna have to make her own) so I am up to SIX baby quilts on my to do list! Better get to it!
I am lucky my friend Barb (who isn't going to camp this time) offered to quilt my Christmas Past and Presents mini quilt for the quilt auction. I just didn't get time to get it done! She even added the binding for me. You may remember I made this as I made it when TemeculaQuilt Company was posting it last year. Love that they share fun easy to do sewalongs. I need to join in another one!
