Three more baby quilts finally finished!

I started making these months ago
for three little boys due sometime this fall
and finally finished them yesterday!
The first one has been mailed off to Boston
as he was born September 29th.

I found this darling giraffe material
in Ashland, Oregon.
I call this quilt 
"Stand Tall and Reach For the Stars"

This will be going to North Carolina
eventually where this little baby boy's
US Navy daddy is stationed.
I had a jungle theme going with 
all three of these quilts.... 
This one is called "Jungle Buddies"

Last but not least this quilt will
be mailed off to Portland Oregon
once little "Max" is born.
The title of this quilt is 
"Lions and Tigers and No Bears Oh My"


  1. They are all beautiful. I'm glad you got them done before your birthday rolled around.

  2. Those are all very nice! I'm guessing the middle one is bound for Jacksonville, correct?

  3. You do beautiful work. Do you make quilts for big boys?

  4. Thanks Sandee, Alex and Stephen for your nice comments- Alex - do you live in Jacksonville? hahah
    and Stephen- I have yet to make a BIG quilt for anyone- least of all moi!
    But time will tell....if little boys stop being born, then perhaps I'll have to make quilts for big boys!

  5. I love your quilts, you're very creative, and they are so artful. Thanks for letting us see them.

  6. Tried to publish your comments and they disappeared but wanted to let you know I agree with you about the joint fault of our current predicament. Thanks your notes.

  7. Today, is my day for getting caught up on blog reading and I see you must of had a birthday. Happy belated birthday.

    Wow, the quilts are amazing. Very, VERY cute. People that have babies and know you, are lucky people.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
