What I've Been Up To

Well, let's see. I got my annual new ironing board cover. It looked so nice when I took this picture.  No stains, no scorch marks. Lovely.  It's already showing some wear.

I've also gotten two baby quilt tops put together. 

They're the same, but different, made from 30s reproduction fabrics for the twin girls my niece is expecting in early April.

Today I was playing with fabrics, trying to choose what to use for two more quilts. Big ones this time.

Orange, teal blue, cream & lime green accent for my #2 granddaughter.  Generous double size. Why she had to choose such a strange shade of blue to paint her room I will never know. If these aren't quite right she will just have to deal with it.

Queen size in dusty purples, chocolate and a cream print. I'm not really satisfied with these browns so might have to see if I can run across some I like better. I've made enough quilts with browns that the best ones are pretty much used up.

Looks like I'll be busy for a while. If I don't post you'll know I'm cutting and sewing like mad.


  1. I like your colour choices, lime and orange, the browns go well with the mauves. Lovely baby quilts, with twins it is lovely for them to have their own special design. Cheers from Jean

  2. Love the purple-brown combo!

  3. Now I am suffering from ironing board cover envy, mine is a dull silver color.
    I can't wait to see what you are going to do with the oranges. I used to hate orange and these days it is calling to me with thoughts of tangerines, mango and peach.

  4. Your baby quilts are darling! Good luck on your new projects...

  5. Those are so pretty -- thanks for linking up!
