Milla's Quilt Backing....

It almost took the same amount of time to make the backing as it did the front...not really what I was hoping it would look like....I think the pieces are too big...but with limited time and fabrics....this will do just fine!

Boy # 4

My beautiful friend had boy number 4 yesterday afternoon. Welcome little Sebastian Bede! They are such a wonderful family. I have already started his quilt and I have 6 weeks left to finish it.

1 more blocks to show you...tomorrow...

Happy Father's Day!

Beach time!

This boy loves the beach....pity we don't live a bit closer to it. It was overcast and very windy and much too cold for swimming but he loved playing kick and building sandcastles....so he could jump on them!



He did get in trouble for kicking the sand but the photo was too good not to share...!
