I really suck.....

At taking photo's that is, I tried three different places to take this pic the wind was just blowing way too much. Se the wet corner I kinda dipped it in the snow ( dang it). Beside they are not even straight in the pic, WTF? I was not drinking when I took this pic. I guess I'll just keep plugging away on that. Anyway here is my PINK Halloween quilt. While collecting fabrics for this quilt I got a lot of looks when I would tell them I was making Halloween pink, I just said every holiday should be PINK. What do you think? Just not sure how st. Patrick's will work into that. HMM...

I really love this quilt, this one is for my sweet little angle baby, Olivia. I am making my self a matching one, my back ground will be white and my inner border pink and my out border black and gray. Just need to get the quilting done on it but thought I would share before I do that, in case its not done by Halloween.

I cheated!!!!

Yes, I did it I cheated! I need to make a quick quilt for my little sweet baby, for her new toddler bed. So I had this cute panel and I cut it apart to try to make it look more pieced not sure it made much difference but I did have to add to the panel so I wanted everything to look the same.

Here is the quilting I put on it.
Sorry for all the un professional pics.

A gift for my Bella B!

Isabella needed a curtain for her new room So I , (being her Mema) needed to make her one, well since she had a new curtain for her new room I thought it would be only appropriate for her to have a matching Quilt.
This quilt was way out of the norm for me, Since it was Tinker Bell she wanted I was very limited to were to buy the fabric, Walmart was pretty much the only choice I had. Since this quilt was just for fun WHY not? Well it turned out ok, I just hope it last at least through her TINK stage. But can I just say that that fabric sucks to sew? My quilting machine did not even like it, it messed the tension all up. I put all walmart on the front of the quilt but on the back I put good stuff cause it was cheaper to buy on clearance than wal mart, the binding is also the good stuff. It was like sewing on sand paper. Any way she really Loved it and that is all that counts. Boy the thinks us Grandma's do to make there Sweet grand babys Happy!!!!!

Here is a pic of the quilt I saw in a quilt shop and wanted to make one of my own, so I pulled out the stash of Halloween and came up with this.....
All is from my stash except for the black spiderweb back ground. Now mine is not exactly the same cause I just made it up my self with out a patten. The original had little pockets going all around the border to put candy in. I opted out of that one .
The ghost's are made from half of a Hanky!
