Oh Happy Day! It's vacation for DGD Samantha as she chose to spend some time with Grammy. She brought her quilt that she got as a baby--*smile* gift from Grammy and it's nice to see that my beginnings as a quilter are holding up.

Never know when some heartstrings will come in handy. I learned about a group called Mountain Baby Blankets that needs quilts/blankets for mom's in Appalachia. http://flickr.com/groups/mountainbabyblankets/

I got four done and now ready to mail today.








Took some leftover flannel and made into a baby blanket.










Happy Frogs is what I called this. I had some frogs made into Happy Blocks and when I learned of a need in Appalachia--I pulled these out and made a baby quilt.









Finished with Minky on the back and quilted by Judy. I don't think I'll do this again, but I used up my Minky that I had and it turned out okay--it's just that it took forever to bind it.

February Border now added! Just one day late, but at least it's done. The new border for March doesn't look nearly as hard--well not hard, just not as small of pieces so it will work up faster. 98 two and a half inch squares is a lot of cutting! It's looking good though. This is the first mystery quilt I've ever done. Claudia's Quilt Shop--Bedazzled Mystery.
