Welcome Penelope

Well, our fourth grandchild was born on April 10, 2012.  6 pounds 13 ounces and all of 20 inches long.  She is a little sweetie. 
I took off a little over a week to help out with her(and loved every minute). The grandbabies are keeping me busy this year.  :)
On the quilting side I have been busy and have worked on both a twister quilt and a trip around the world.  I am trying to get at least four quilt tops completed for Christmas gifts this year.   Here is a sneak peak of the twister on the design wall
These twister quilts are so much fun.  I will be doing another one I think with the smaller ruler using some charm packs.  I will post another pic once I get the borders on.  I actually traced around the ruler and cut row by row.  I was not comfortable using the rotary cutter in such a tight space and was afraid I would overshoot and cut into my next block.   I used the Fons and Porter white pencil, which showed up great on these batiks.
The trip around the world I am working on is ala Eleanor Burns (I love her books because the directions are always so detailed).  Sneak peak of progress on this one
Sew now, all is good.  I will end this post so I can go visit my favorite blogs.  Adios Bernie

  1. Bernie, Penelope is beautiful. I had a new grandbaby this past December. We now have 5 grandgirls and I stay busy with them. I love the twister. I probably need to add one to my "to do" list which keeps growing. But I have to keep busy. Take care, Robin
