It runs in the family....what can I say!

Over the Christmas break I caught up with my gorgeous cousin Brenda
who happens to be into quilting as well and she had some show and tell, so of course I had to take some photos and blog about them.

Her son- in- laws grandmother had lots of fabric when she passed and Brenda made quilts
for the family with the fabric, the rest was for her to keep and these are a couple
of the quilts she made.

Brenda recently purchased a Gammil Long arm machine with computer and has been
practicing her skills, I think this looks great, so colourful.

and she has done a fabulous job of the quilting.

this is a top to be quilted and also in
blue as well

and of course always when your trying to do something, you always
get extra input...

I love your quilts Brenda and it shows that there is talent in the family.
ha ha!!

Stash Builder

 Loved these fabrics so of course I had to buy them

and these

My two nieces over Christmas have announced that they are expecting
in May and June, so when I saw this pattern by Natalie Ross, I couldn't resist.

I love making bits and pieces for babies so I have lots to do and of course
they have to have a quilt!!

I am hoping to find a good pattern for bibs
Any Ideas???

I seriously have to get cracking and stop procrastinating this year, I have decided this is
my New Years Resolution and to keep posting regularly, so wish me luck!!

Happy New Year!!
