Deana: Jeeps!

My daughter and her husband love to go rock crawling in their Toyota truck.  They also have a jeep.  They had planned to do their nursery in trucks but found out they were having a girl.  Colors immediately shifted and then I found some really cute girl jeeps online.  It sparked an idea for them to do her room in girly jeeps.  I created this crib quilt for them.  My son in law says it is a one of a kind for a baby and he is right.

I still need to add words "Born to Crawl" at the top and the baby's name at the bottom.  I also need to stitch around all those little pieces.  Her baby shower is in a week so I have not much time.  I will be plugging away on this little project all week.

Deana: a little sewing this week

I have done a little bit of sewing this week. I got a good start on this baby blanket for my daughter.  She wants to do her baby's room in jeeps.  I have cut out one jeep so far - very time consuming.  It is not yet fused because I will have to cut them all out to choose where they will go.

 I crocheted around the edges of two baby blankets and one burp cloth.  One of them I pieced in large squares.

Happy Sewing!

Information on feet and rulers for ruler work.

I wanted to link to this post because I love this foot and want one for my machine.  It also educates me on the thickness of rulers that I need for my low shank foot.

Rulers to buy

Deana: Diamond Hill 2nd block glue basted

Yay! I am trying to catch up with Diamond Hill.  I really want to get everything at least glue basted this month if at all possible.  Last night I finished glue basting the second block.  It is also half way stitched down.

Here is my first block.  It is completely done, glue washed out, and pressed.

I also pieced another baby quilt top and cut the blocks for a twin to it.  The first one is at the quilt shop getting the holes in it for crochet.

Deana: One Monthly Goal and others too

May 1st is here!  I am loving it because I am a school teacher and I will soon have long summer days to sew sew sew!

My "One Monthly Goal" is also number 11 on Patchwork Times draw list for May.  I hope to complete my Snowman Embroidery Quilt - quilting, binding and all.  

I also like to add my other goals to my list in the same post.  I hope to piece/applique'/quilt/bind a baby quilt for my daughter.  Here are the fabric colors.  She wants jeeps and a the phrase "Born to Crawl".  She is referring to jeep rock crawling.  Here are some photos I found on Pinterest that inspired me.

These are the colors she wants it in.  I have not purchased them yet.

Put a final border on Mom's Quilter's Garden...

Put a final border on Jodi's Lattice...

Quilt Felicity's blue/green quilt...

Prep two Diamond Hill blocks for applique'.  These are the ones that are done/partially done...

Cut out more blocks for my Christmas Log Cabin

Make two receiving blankets - one for Margo and one for Lethi.  They are both having baby girls.  Below is a picture of the fabrics I have selected and a photo of the simple pattern I plan to piece.  (I made one for my daughter's baby out of orange, green, and yellow.) 

I will also crochet around the edges like the one in the photo below.

Deana; 17 for 2017

I worked on two of my 17 for 2017 quilts in April...

Christmas Log Cabin

and Dear Jane.  I finished the blocks in the second to last Dear Jane Row.  Yay!  I am going to finish this top this year.  This row was also my Patchwork Times #1 that was drawn for April.  My goal was to finish one row and I did!

Here is a link to my complete list of 17 for 2017.  I have done well with my list with a few tops finished and some complete finishes.

April Goal Recap

Well, I didn't get all my goals done in April but there was only one I didn't get to.  I think that is ok.

I did get the fundraiser quilt made by our church ladies quilted.  It isn't the most beautiful quilt I have seen, but it is done and sold none the less.

I quilted and sent off Joann's Sunbonnet Sue.  It turned out lovely.

Quilt Felicity's blue and green stars.  You can see it is basted.

Finish the 16 blocks in my Christmas Log Cabin quilt:  YAY! I DID GET THE DONE!

This is what it looked like before...

Here is what it looks like now.  The blocks are just placed where they go, not sewn in, so they look a little skiwompus at the moment.

Prepare two Diamond Hill blocks for applique'. I got one almost basted and it is almost stitched down as well.

Complete 1 more row in Dear Jane.  YAY!  DONE!  I have one more row to go.

In addition to my goals,  I also crocheted around the edges of two baby blankets.

Deana: Diamond Hill and baby blanket

I was able to begin glue basting the lovely flowers.  This block is beginning to come alive and I really am happy with it.  I also crocheted another baby blanket edge last night.  Life is good!
