Well the rain hasn't stopped all morning and after the fabulous weather on Saturday it's a little hard to take. I was hoping that it might last another week. I finished the last of my baby boy quilts and I'm really happy with it.

Just as I finished the quilt top I was reading Judith's blog post Just Jude: A Vintage Year! and was inspired to try my hand at straight line quilting. I loved Judith's quilt and how she quilted it. So after a couple of questions and some great advice from Judith, I finished mine. I was unsure of how to do the border, but the parallel lines look great and I hope the beautiful baby boy himself will love his gift.

This is certainly not going to be my last foray into straight line quilting, I loved it and will be trying it again soon. 

I have a lot of stock that needs replenishing and will be working on that for the coming weeks in preparation for Christmas fairs. I know I know, it seems a bit early but the time is flying. 

Hope you all have a great week, I'm expecting some fab fabric later on this week so I will post up my latest and LAST fabric purchases for the next couple of months.


  1. Brilliant pics G! Thanks for the mention. Btw, do you know you can reply to Susan directly from your email, rather than here on your blog? Jxo

  2. I just started thinking about Christmas too and it's freakin' me out!

    Gorgeous quilt finish! Perfect for a little man.

  3. The border really makes it stand out. Beautiful.
