Stars!

Otto's top is pieced! Well, the main part, anyhow. I plan to add a couple borders.
And I made some stars for the back.
And here it will have to wait for a couple weeks. We leave tomorrow for my niece's wedding and a vacation. We decided today to bring my husband's old laptop, so I may have internet access, but I don't know whether it will be available everywhere we go, or how much time I'll have to use it. But if I can, I'll post a photo or two. I hope you all have an enjoyable couple weeks!

Also, I want to thank Jill at Life with Nature Girl. She gave me an Arte y Pico award for having helped her when she was a new blogger. Her kindness and appreciation really touched me. I need to pass the award on to other bloggers, but it will have to wait until I return. In the meantime, let me say that it is a great pleasure reading Jill's lively blog, and any tips and advice I shared with her are no more than what so many other bloggers have shared with me. I really enjoy the online friendships I've made. Thank you all!

Have a restful vacation!

I really like the bright colors in Otto's quilt. I need to make a baby gift and think I might just ignore the pastels this time. You have inspired the bright side of me!

The last dozen or so baby quilts I've made have all been bright ~ the moms have loved them as have the little tykes. Otto will adore his!

Have a grand vacation - safe travels!

Wow that is impressive. I love the way those fabrics play off each other.

Wow! What a stunning quilt. He will love it. You will have to borrow it back to enter in the Fair. It would get lots of attention.
