For a special little boy named Jacob

My husband's niece and her husband adopted a little Korean boy whom they named Jacob. They recently celebrated his 1st birthday and had him baptized. I wanted to get this quilt finished and sent to him for that special day but alas....time was not on my side. It is going in the mail today.

These are some of the pieces as I started the appliqués. I wanted it to have lots of textures so used minky fabrics along with cottons.

Here is the finished quilt top. I used purple and yellow and green and red and blue. All the appliqués were done with Scottie fabrics! All the same design but in yellow, red or green.

Scottie fabric finds

Lots of friends on Scottie groups have been asking what some of the Scottie fabrics I have purchased this year look like as they want to be able to make wise choices and FIND them! Here's for all the Scottie fabric addicts like me! There is a red thermal with black Scotties that I haven't bought yet so don't have a photo. Hope this helps all my Scottie friends who have asked what they look like!

Some progress!!!

I finished the three Christmas stockings and they are in this pile of packages going out today along with a couple Bling Scottie sweat shirts and some funky Scottie coasters making their way to the UK!PB040003

I have started doing the appliqués for Jacob's quilt. I want it to be touchy feely as little ones should have lots of textures to touch and the colors should carry him through a few years.

So I did make progress. It's off to the post office and to VOTE! Then I work the afternoon until closing.

See ya all tomorrow!

What Am I Working On????

I have several projects in the works right now. Will probably blog about some of them in the future.

1. I have three more of these cut out. The lady who purchased it would like three more to go with it.
