A quilt for Reed!

I made Reed's quilt to fit a double bed.  I used a sports theme.  I still have to make the pillow shams but the quilt is complete.  I hope he likes it!

here's a photo of the quilt
This is a photo of some of the backing showing. I used fabric with soccer balls, footballs, baseballs and basket balls.

Here is the latest photo of my two precious baby boys.
Reed and Alden are growing up way too fast!

A Butterfly quilt

Here is a blast from the past photo!  I made this butterfly quilt for my dear friend in Colorado several years ago.  I put all the butterflies flying north and one flying south in hopes that one day she will move back to Louisiana!

Saturday sampler Month #1

I am taking part in a Saturday sampler at a quilt shop near my home.  I have never done this before.  I went to the class and when I got home I made my block.  It should be fun to see how the blocks all fit together! It is about 13 inches square.
Here is what the first block looks like.

How to build a house of cloth!

I have never been able to work with fabric to make a picture.  I decided to give it a try today.  I took a photo of my home and went to my sewing room.  I pulled out scraps and pieces of fabric and started cutting.  Here is a picture of the house of cloth that I made today.  I am thinking of making it the center of a log cabin quilt for my queen sized bed.  Or maybe just a wall hanging. 
Any suggestions will be welcomed!
