Last pics of finished baby quilt; I washed it and had two yo-yo's fall apart on it, so re-stitched them and decided to hand stitch all around every yo-yo's for a secure hold. Quilted with 80 /20 cotton batting (the last of a roll I had for several years) on my Juki, just freemotion scribble.

Every month the quilt guild I belong to has a member do a tutorial on "block of the month". My turn is this month. Members can (if they wish) make a few samples of that block for the next month and they are all put together for a drawing, each block you make equals one ticket for the drawing. If you win, you get all the blocks. The block can also be done up in red, white and blue and donated to our wounded warrior quilt efforts. I enjoy the quilt guild. Visiting with friends, beautiful eye candy when it is show and tell, it is a relaxing evening for me. So this is my demo for the quilt block:

Well, well, well, that was quite a game yesterday. I don't even follow football or pretend to understand more than that each team tries to get to the opposite end of the field and score points, but thought it was an exciting game to watch anyway. I got pulled in because my husband was watching, usually that football time finds me in my sewing room. Congrats to the winning team and fans. Both teams played hard.
I have a flimsy to show. It is intended for a cousin's daughter who is expecting her first baby in April Z(I think). I was told it is a girl, so I went for pinks and purples because the momma to be is favoring lavender for the baby's room. It will have a lavender flannel backing.
