Quick Weekend Update – and it’s ALWAYS about the kids!

Hello Friends!  I hope you have enjoyed your weekend.  This is my overdue “Friday” post from yesterday, but time totally got away from me yesterday.

Thank you to many of you who participated in my It’s All About The Kids Craft Blogging Event giveaway.  Thank you also to SewCalGal who hosted the event, and Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring the giveaway!


Jill of Apple Avenue Quilts (Comment #18) won the giveaway of a $25 gift certificate to shop at Fat Quarter Shop.  Congrats, Jill!   You will be contacted soon about how to redeem your gift certificate!  Thank you, you all, for playing along.


I loved being apart of It’s All About the Kids blog hop.  And at this point in my life, it is always about a certain kid in my life.  So, I thought sharing with you my kid-themed projects would be a nice way to wrap-up the hop!

Please click on the quilt name for more information on the pattern etc.

Thanks for stopping by, Dear Friends! Have a lovely rest of your weekend. I will catch up again with you next wee!


Virtual Trunk Show: Babies and Kids!

Happy Monday, Friends!  I hope you had a good weekend.  We had a bit of reprieve from the heat, and are more than thankful about that!  The topic of babies and kids came up during our family’s visit this last weeks, inspiring today’s virtual trunk show’s theme of babies and kids!  In my humble opinion, there’s nothing more precious than the making and giving of a baby quilt to any new addition(s) to a family – thinking of the symbolism of covering a baby with LOVE and PRAYERS using a quilt made with heartfelt love makes me teary eye.

I will tell what my all-time favorite is when it comes to baby/kids quilts — and it is one NOT made by me.  It is Gwen’s Stars.  Click here to read about the quilt.

Before you leave, do read about Lorraine’s first ever quilt she made for her grandson if you haven’t already.

HAPPY MONDAY HUGS for you just for stopping by! :)
