New quilt

Just had to show the quilt I designed for my greatgrand due in August. I really like it. This one I call "Ladybug Picnic". I've had it in my head for a while now and when my grand told me she was doing her baby's room in ladybugs, it was the perfect time to get it from my head to fabric.
If anyone is interested in this pattern, send me an email and I will be happy to send you a copy. I wish I knew how to do a PDF, then I could put it on here as a free giveaway.

Have a great week.

My mom

Has been gone 41 years today. Everyone that still has a mom, call her today and tell her how much she means to you.

My oldest daughter called last night and asked if I was coming out to Georgia in August. My first great grandchild is due Aug 15th. I've been there for the birth of all my grands, I can't pass up my first great. Mari said it's in the "ruler book" page 148 that I'm supposed to be there. (we make up our rule books as we go)

This is one thing I got done this weekend. I've been making these quilters totes to hopefully sell. They are big enough to hold a queen size top, batting and backing to take to your longarmer, pack up all you need for retreats or take all your stuff to the gym or haul your kids off to whatever they are doing. They all have a large snap closure, ties on the sides and padded heavy duty cardboard in the bottoms for stability.

I hope everyone has a great week.
