Baby Cassandra's Quilt...and more.

I can finally show you this baby quilt that I finished about 2 months ago.  It's for Baby Cassandra...a sweet little baby girl whose Mommy works with me.    I used fabric from Erin of Why Not Sew? and Cathy of Turtle Hill Quilter, plus a few I had...all small prints along with Kona solid in Snow.  The backing is a pink and white checkered flannel.  So soft!!  I quilted it with diagonal lines both directions.  (These first pictures aren't the greatest.  Sorry.) 


Here's a photo of Baby Cassandra (8 weeks old) with her new quilt.  Look at all her hair!  She is as cute as a button.

I finally got thread for the orange quilt.  Hope to get that one finished, as the baby is awaitin'! 

Hope you all have a great weekend.



oops...I forgot about the '...and more' part!
Lookie who came to live with Naomi Janome's cousin, Serger Sue!

 Naomi and Sue have been spending time catching up on all the news...and the upcoming exciting news we have to share!  I haven't done a test-drive, yet.  But, I did read the instruction manual!    
                                    Janome Horizon 7933 Serger

Here's the story:  I had a serger years ago...used it a lot.  Until it froze on me.  I wasn't doing much sewing then, so it wasn't a big deal.  Then, when I started sewing again, my sweet friend, Brenis, sent me a 'found' serger.  It looked almost new, but was seriously messed up.  I could never get the tension right...and it had a few other issues...and then I didn't use it.  When I moved last summer, it found a new home.  Little did I know where my path was leading me.  Now, in need of a serger again, Serger Sue came to the rescue!

Yes.  More news.  Coming soon.

Hi Jacque, I love this quilt and your quilting is perfect. I am just working on a new quilt for a granddaughter and decided to stitch some dragonflys, butterflies, and daisies instead of hearts. I do love the simplicity of straight lines though. Great job!

Both baby and quilt are gorgeous

That quilt is so cute and she looks so cute all snuggled under it. I just won some pinks and I think they would be adorable in a baby girl quilt.

It looks great Jacque! Love the pops of orange and the gingham backing.

That is still one thing I wish I had was a serger. I am all ears I can't wait to hear about it. Your quilts on that sweet baby look so nice.
