Alright, let’s celebrate the Oscar! When Rae asked if I wanted to participate in this year’s Celebrate the Boy series on her blog I hopped on board because it’s been about a year that I’ve had a pile of fabric set aside for a lego themed quilt for Oscar and I thought this would be a kick in the pants to get it done.

The boy is no stranger to themed quilts. He started out life driving cars on his … More

GG’s quilt

After surrendering to the pinwheels I settled on rectangles. I love rectangles. We understand each other. They never let me down. Wish I could smuggle myself to Portland along with the quilt and give this cutie baby hugs and kisses in person.

green and pink and black, again

Unbelievable.. it’s a finished project! This one I started back in March. I’m not sure how it won the lottery of which project to start with first but I’m glad it did because once I got going on it (after mulling it for a week or so) it went together in a day and I now have something finished! Nothing more invigorating than finishing something.

This puppy is for Phoebe and it’s in a favorite color scheme of mine, … More
