blanket drive +


Fat quarter waiting their turn under the iron…quite the assortment here…for every 2 fat quarters (I like having coordinating fabrics) I can make 2 small Teeny Diapers and one 12 inch square blanket. October 28th 2013 I can’t wait to have time for a hearty ironing session!

Newborn boy cheater quilts for the God’s Tiny Angels blanket Drive.  Olivia approved of these two since she helped pick them out! October 27th 2013


Newborn cheater patchwork quilt…This is a cheater too since the patches are already sewn together and sold by the yard…Minky and flannel, super soft. These will be going to God’s Tiny Angels blanket Drive.  Olivia approved of these two since she helped pick them out! October 27th 2013

While watching a few scary movies into the night I chopped up 2 rolls of Stockinette to make no sew caps to go with the teeny diaper sets.  These piles have already been flipped and just need to be tied with cute ribbon.  No idea how many are here…lots! October 26th 2013

Fresh from the drier preemie P.J.s for the next box going out to God’s Tiny Angels. CUTENESS! October 27th 2013

Warm fuzzy preemie P.J.s clean and ready to be packaged for God’s Tiny Angels. October 27th 2013

New Born Receiving blankets all washed and ready to be packaged for the God’s Tiny Angels Blanket Drive, I’m up to 22 quilts and blankets so far. Filled up one large box…guess I’ll be looking for another box since I have 20 yards of flannel waiting to be chopped up as well as at least one panel to quilt for the drive as well. >happy dance< October 27th 2013

Kiddie Middles

Been getting up at 4:45am the past few mornings to get Jim going on time (this is the last day of that massive lack of sleep) and to keep my self from falling asleep in the living room I’ve been digging through my stash in search of fun kiddy charms to sew into quick quilt middles…

I’ve made 2 boy middles

and 1 girl middle (yup that’s one lone left over boy charm in there…shhhh…I’m sure no one will notice).  All the charms are 6 inches square…I have wonderful left over border strips from other quilts to make these a nice size…and of course the ever present prairie points! These will most likely be going to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia when completed http://danettesangels.tripod.com

a bit of hand quilting

Fun ‘Caterwauling’ kitty panel purchased from Heavenly Quilt Shop in Waconia http://www.heavenlypatchworkquiltshop.com/index.html hand quilting around the kitties so the safety pins are there to hold it all together for the moment.  Fun 3” prairie points look nifty around the edge. Backed with a yummy light lemon on yellow sheeting.

Wicked cool jungle panel from a box of garage sale fabric (thanks Auntie Vicki)…I’m hand quilting around all the beasties so those safety pins aren’t a permanent fixture.  Just the right size for a preemie! Backed with light teal sheeting. June 25th 2010


Cute lil pink lovie

Wee cute little preemie quilt.  Purchased a grab bag of assorted charms and a chunk of hot pink at Heavenly Patchwork for 3 bucks…blended them with pink baby fabric from a garage sale and WA-LA…cute and feminine! 24 X 30 inches of pink sweetness! This will be going to GTA in West Virginia in the next big box of baby goodies!
