THE GARDEN QUILT

my quilting posse is going to help me baste it
first we tape it to the floor
pull it out all straight
then baste the heck out of it…
then i can take it home and start on the quilting….
and finally……
THE RECYCLED PAJAMA QUILT
baby quilt....
baby quilt….

this one is made out of old pajamas, shirts and pants.

it will most likely be given to a boy because it is kind-of boy-like
it is soft and fuzzy on the other side….
I would like to get all three nearly quilted before it gets warm.  I probably have until about april or may before I can no longer stand to hold them…. then i will fold them up, put them away and see what speaks to me next.

he got second place out of all the 2nd grade boys.
notice there are no kids behind them.
they both started out so fast that they left everyone else behind.
there would have been one more kid right there with them
he was on the sidelines not feeling well
3 laps around,  both of them sticking close together.
the red skirt in the background is our neighbor lady
she said she would buy him a cake if he got first place.
UPDATE!!!!  He got half a cake!!!!!!  She and her mother ate the other half!!!!
