This month I started two baby quilts for two very special to me babies. I finished the ruffled rag quilt for my God-Daughter's baby. You can see it here and I started on the embroidery for a baby quilt for our own new grand baby due in June.
These blocks are turning out so darn cute but boy are they sew intensive! Each sew out is taking between two and three hours. You read that right. There are between 30,000 and 45,000 stitches in each one and that's a long time to sew on a home machine. I'm happy with the way they're turning our though because the detail in each one is so fantastic. The PJ's each are different with little embellishments that make me want to keep looking at them.

|That diaper pin just cracks me up. He looks like a dog we had once named Algebra.|
|Teddy bears on his PJs!|
I can't decide which I like best. I have two more to go and then I'll be ready to start putting these together. I don't have a pattern I'm just winging it so we'll see how it goes. This is what the sewing room looks like right now. Can you say DISASTER AREA!
Linking up to February NewFO Challenge Linky Party at Cat Patches so take at look at what other creative people have started this month and join in.
Until next time,
