New Baby




My daughter Kori, who lives in Lindon, Utah had a baby boy on Tuesday. My eighth grandchild. He was born two weeks early. So I am headed to Utah. Sadly, I will miss quilt group.
I finally finished the strawberry quilt for my granddaughter Kennedy. I was slow on this one, but she hasn't had her first birthday yet (It's in March). Thanks for the advice on how to finish it. This was my first scalloped edge, and my first bias binding. It's fun to learn new skills. My fun trick is I marked the quilt with a child's washable marker, so easy to do and see, then it comes right out when you wash it-pretty cool. The very scrappy star quilt is for my new (yet to be named) grandson.
I hope someone will take pictures at quilt group and post them on the blog. Everyone take care and happy quilting!

Your quilts look so great. I have yet to try the scalloped edge. It really adds to the already cute quilt.
We will miss you Thursday. I will take pictures for you.
Have a great time with the new grandchild.
