Actually my days just blend into the next.

I was asked to do two quilst for twins, a boy and a girl.  I had this Hula boy and girl dancer fabric and thought that would be perfect.

 The block is from "Sew One and Your're Done" by Evelyn Slopppy.  I love this book, I have made a few of the quilts and have enjoyed it each time.  The best thing is that the quilts go fast.
 Here is the back of the green one, wouldn't you know that I had to have just a smidge more fabric??  The orange one is done the same way.
 Here is another orange quilt.  I just love it, this picture does not do it justice.

So as you can tell I have been very busy.  When I was at JoAnn's the other day I said...."Barb, you need to get you some more white Sulky Thread #944-1071".  I thought I  had plenty, This is the large spool and thought it would take me months to get through it.  I love to quilt with this thread, hardly any fuzz and breakage.
I ran out yesterday night as I was quilting the green quilt above.
So...I used Coat & Clark's white T35 and I was really surprised how well it did.  No breakage at all and little fuzz. (no this was not a paid announcement)  sounds like it doesn't it.


  1. I love those one and done quilts too. They are great baby quilts! Love yours!

  2. Wow...those came out really nice. How fun! Since you seem to get so much done, can I send you a pile of my UFO's?


  3. Someone has been very busy!! They are all awesome!

  4. Those are some good lookin quilts

  5. Love that orange one (all of them of course) but that one the best :)

  6. Cute quilts! Orange is my favorite color and I'm so happy that they make fabric in orange now that isn't to Halloweenish! Next time you'll listen to that thread fairy prompting you to buy more, lol! Glad the other thread worked well though :)

  7. I adore the orange quilt it is one of my favourites. I loved the really cute quilts for the twins too. I don't know how you you do them all but I envy you the talent.


Life is a breeze with you in it. Thanks for stopping by!
