I had the opportunity to quilt up a little baby quilt for a special little girl. Her parents had just returned from Africa with her and I wanted to make something extra for her arrival. This Heather Bailey Elephant is really a pincushion pattern, but it worked well for a little toy. Her face just lit up when I tucked it next to her. At 9 months old, all of this experience is new and scary. But like all adopted children, she will take it in stride.

I've been working on a quilt for a Quilt University class online.
This is just from my sketchbook. Not everything is easy to translate into fabric. Most things are fused.
The lights in the house are silk and since it unravels so much, I've cut out the windows and put the silk underneath. Still working on this one. I think more trees are needed.

It's so difficult for me to be inside when there is gardening to do!
