Both of my kids love blankets. Fleece blankets, knitted blankets, cotton - it doesn't matter.
Do you think they sleep with enough blankets?
Jacquie was generous enough to send me 2 pieces of sheeting. See, Jessie loves to read blogs. And she saw a quilt that Jacquie had made, and wanted one just like it.
In the hustle and bustle of starting school, soccer, and end of summer, she forgot about it. But I didn't. And last night, I made this quilt top:
It measures 50 1/2" square. I think with cotton batting and either a sheet backing or flannel, it will make a wonderful lap quilt for her for Christmas.
When I cleaned out my sewing/computer room, all my "works in progress" I dumped in a huge rubbermaid tote. That's right, I dumped them in there. Now I'm sorting through, and when I find all the pieces to any one top, I stop what I am doing and work on the top. I figure if I get all the tops done, I can quilt them all later on this fall. So far, it's working - this one is at least in quilt top form. Ummmm.....I think I have 11 more to go.
Now I just need to make a sheet quilt for Tyler out of my sheeting stash:
And that will be 1 present down for Christmas for both of them!
