Lots of Baby Quilts...

 I have been sewing like a mad woman in the last 5 days!  I finally broke down and bought a "walking foot" for quilting on my sewing machine.  It allows you to do machine quilting without any slippage between  the two fabrics and the batting.  You get a nice flat quilt with no puckers or bunches at the ends of the rows of quilting.  This thing is worth every penny that I paid for it and I wish I had done it sooner!
Teddy Bears

Dogs and Lady Bugs

Citrus Colors--(need sunglasses for this one)

Kitty--I did an outline stitch around it,
so it stands out...

These blocks were already sewn ~~
I did the sashing, the backing and the binding...
This is called a sampler quilt,
 because all the blocks are different.

This backing is cute~~Teddy Bears with balloons...

This was fabric from my own stash...

I love doing these baby quilts...
they are all about 24" square and they don't take much time to make.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to this past week.  I'm trying to stay off the computer, and to be more productive.  I have my blog, Facebook, and now Pinterest to eat up my time, and I need a way to be able to use them all and still be productive.  And then there's my minis, too!  Good thing I'm retired, (and loving it).  I wouldn't have time to work these days!!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean
