Kathy Boice

and she said....

Congratulations Kathy! I sent you an email with more information.

I would like to say Thank You to all of you who have sent me emails and commented over the last couple of weeks on my giveaway blog posts. I am truly blessed to have such great followers.
I would also like to say WHOO HOO this is my 100th post!!
(o.k. sorry got a little carried away)

Now I will move on to Thankful Thursday.

I want to tell you I am thankful for my Niece (well I'm thankful for all 4 of my niece's)  But this is my niece who is grown up and married and has a family of her own. And speaking of family she and her husband are expanding their family. She is due in October and she really wanted a girl because she already has one little boy but they say she is having another boy.

Well she is still excited about the baby. So I always make family members quilts when they have a new addition. I told you about it on the bottom of my last post HERE  

This is what I was going to use.

It is a Nancy Halverson panel. I had planned to cut it apart and add some fabric to square it up and make the baby a quilt. Well I got my fabric out and started and you might have seen a picture on instagram about it. 

Well this is as far as I got because I looked at it from across the room and just did a Big sigh....
Now before I get hate mail there is Nothing wrong with a Christmas quilt. just so happens this child will be born in October so....see this will not work. Don't worry I am still going to make the quilt but I will just give it to my charity that I always give quilts to. They usually give some of them out around Christmas anyway.

So today I pulled out one of my jelly rolls I had on my shelf to try and make a different baby quilt. It is a Kona cotton solid in "Summer" palette.

So here is the only progress I have made.

This looks very modern. Nothing wrong with that. I really got the idea off of a "pin" that I saw on Pintrest. You might have noticed I have a Pintrest Board called Beautiful Bold Color and on that board I have a pin from a flikr board.

I may or may not be able to do this. I have another jelly roll of the same colors but I was planing to make another quilt for someone else.

If you have read all the way down this far Thank You for listening to my ramble on about this quilt "re-think" and my Thankful Thursday.

Hugs and best stitches to you,

a.k.a. Mrs. Sew & Sew
