No Place Like Home

Wes and I went for a drive this week.
Well, actually we went on Spring Break.

We had a lovely time in the Seattle area.
This quilt store was within walking range of our cute little hotel.

We also went to Port Orchard.
We went to a quilt store there also.
And we stopped at this little bakery downtown.
It was amazing.

Flannel for a grandchild in November,
and ribbing....which made me so happy.
I have been looking for it to make bibs for grandma's house.

And Puget Sound.

It is always fun to leave home,
but there is no place like home.

And I just wondered how they would work as rag quilts.

They are in a gift bag, they are not being used at a hospital.
And I have so much fabric to use up.

I love this time of year.
Things start to bloom.
And who doesn't love popcorn on the apricot tree?

Better popcorn than apricots.

New Fabric

I hope to start working on this little quilt soon.
It is always fun to have a baby on the way.

Minky Backs

 When I made this quilt,  I envisioned a bright pink minky back. I found the minky  (on Amazon and it is a nice minky) and t...
