I started working on this quilt last week. I'm using the Aldo to Zippy fabric along with a few other dots and solids. I like how the patches are looking so far. This quilt is going to be a gift for a little boy due in December.

I whipped up 4 bibs yesterday to take to my Newborns in Need meeting tonight. I volunteer once a month with Newborns in Need, we make up Layette packages for babies whose families are in need or crisis. We always seem to be short on bibs, so I put a few together quickly. If anyone is interested in more info about a chapter of Newborns in Need in your area, check out the Newborns in Need website.

I finished quilting this quilt this afternoon. I hurried up and made the binding and have it attached. I just need to hand sew it on. I used loops for the quilting this time. This quilt gave me some trouble earlier in the week. Well, my thread was giving me trouble because I was using the little thread guild on a big spool of thread. Every so often when I was quilting it would pull the thread underneath. I changed the needle, adjusted the tension, and was frustrated until I figured out what I had done wrong. Live and learn. I knew that thread guide was for bigger spools, I just wasn't using it. Sometimes you just have to go back to the basics.

Troy wanted to be in the picture with the quilt. He's such a little ham.
I finished the binding on Wednesday night. It only took me 3 days to quilt it last week. I love the colors and I like the paisley binding too.
I tried doing the tumbling squares on the back and am happy with how they turned out. I might have to try a whole quilt like this.
