Gifts and requests

This time after Christmas has been a good time to catch up on things. The young lady (friend of the family) in the picture below commissioned me to make her little boy a “big boy” blanket to ease his migration from crib to single bed. The fellow holding the little guy is my son who was visiting with me. She and her husband are expecting their second child soon but I can not post the new baby’s blanket just yet as it will give away the sex of the infant. The mom and dad have only told the few that want to know (me included) and the rest want to be surprised. So we’ll just have to wait until the happy event happens in February then I’ll post the blanket photos. The mom has graciously allowed me to post about her quilts. 


She wanted a construction themed quilt and this fabric was the cutest stuff I could find. There are 6 add on blocks and the top and bottom, and although it’s hard to see, the center panel and the 6 blocks are quilted to look like bricks. The quilt is named “Hit the bricks”!

I will post the second quilt which was a gift soon as the baby arrives. 


P.S. I am scrapping the Square Shop extension idea for local purchases for now. I will wait until they improve their software significantly (more features etc). It’s  little too simplistic at this time.
