Camille at Simplify is giving away a really pretty quilt! Yep, giving it away!! All you have to do is wander over and leave a comment. Oh, and if you'd mention I sent ya I'll love ya:)-
On a totally different note, I got my Pay-It-Forward package! Whoo-Hoo! Jacquie at Tallgrass is the best! I'll have to put pictures up tonight, when I have time. This was just to let you all know to throw in for that sweet quilt:)

Both the quilt on the wall and the bed were made by dear Momma. This was in our old house, prior to window treatments, while my DD was still co-sleeping with me (hense the no crib thing:).
Not exactly a great photo of this one, but it's all I can find at the moment. This is for my DS and is a crib size. I just LOVE the little bitty bear paws she did!
And this is the one he slept with most often. And you can even see the dear Momma's feet!
She made him a full size blanket that he sleeps with but, alas, I haven't gotten any photos yet. I will soon and post them when I get the chance. There are plenty more that she's done, but this is all I have photos of at hand at them moment. More to come, I'm sure!
So, thanks Momma, for wrapping my little ones in Granma's love!

I did a simple french seam (with a decorative stitch) because this isn't exactly an heirloom piece! It was strong enough, and fast; I also quilted in between the blocks with a decorative stitch. It wasn't really necessary, but I thought it was a sweet effect and added more interest to the whole.
The quilting adds a neat effect onto the back as well. I'd have added the photo, but it didn't really translate well onto film. Just trust me that it's cool:)
My anatomy test yesterday went really really well, and I have my history test today. Hopefully that means that I will have time to sew tomorrow. Here's keeping the fingers crossed!
