One Step Closer to Completion

With the completion of this geometric block, the calendar quilt is one step closer to completion. My goal is to have it totally finished and ready to go to the machine quilter by the end of January. I have five more applique blocks to do and then I have to concentrate on the sashing. The quilt blocks are put together using over five hundred two and a half inch squares. This project has been challenging to say the least, but enjoyable. I hope that I can say that at the end of the project. The pictures are of the block that I just finished and those that I've done so far.

Presents for Adina

The last time that I visited with my children, Erlisa, my daughter-inlaw took me and the three children to JoAnn's so that Adina, the then three year old could pick out fabric so that I could make her a pair of pajamas. I loved the fabric she picked out. What could be better than ice-cream cones, cupcakes and hearts? At another time, I purchased the t-shirt to complete the outfit. A few weeks later, I decided to make Adina's Bitty Baby doll a matching outfit so off to JoAnn's for some pink knit fabric. During the week, I made the pj's and machine appliqued the shirt and today I finished the doll outfit.
