quilt for bambino!!!

quilt top finished….no pattern, just made it up as I went….BUT, it’s not laying flat people…even after I pressed it. Now what the heck do I do?? Hopefully my wonderful quilt shop ladies will have some suggestions. I really didn’t expect this to happen, not the end of the world, but all this work, and now it won’t lay flat…really? BUMMED!!!! Next question I ask myself, if I can get it to lay flat….HOW SHOULD I QUILT IT???? circles? meandering stitch? hearts? It’s for our Grandbaby, and I really just want it to be cute….Any suggestions out there?? Moral of this story, if your going to make a quilt up as you go….ask HOW to make sure it will lay flat BEFORE you start to skip the headache later!!! Wish me luck people!! I’m going to need it!!

Cheers! a day of organizing and preparing for a baby shower at my house for my Daughter in Law…to be. She is due in September, so this Saturday there will be fun, food, games, lots of “ooooo-ING” and “aaah-ING” at the cute baby things she will have to open. It’s been like Santa’s workshop here at my house finishing up some handmade gifts of love for the baby!
We are all so excited to welcome this baby into the world, so many of us waiting, already head over heals in love with someone we haven’t even bet yet!! Stay tuned, I will blog about some of the home-made goodness!!! (yep, for those who haven’t met me, that’s me in the photo, from this past July)

Stitched together with love for someone special.

Stitched together with love for someone special.

Scraps of llinen, and velvet, an antique sparkly button, some ribbon, and wool “pages” on the inside, I made a friend a
funky little needle keeper case thingie….and a special pocket in the back made from vintage embroidered doily for a pair
of scissors. Lovin’ stuff that comes straight from the heart, and using up scraps, DOUBLE BONUS!!
