Welcome to RUSH HOUR...My Day


Hello! 
Welcome to Day 3 of 
The RUSH HOUR Blog Hop!

And 
MY 16th Anniversary 
to my sweet man!

Sew...
Thank you for stopping by today...
Shall we get started?

So...when I think of Rush Hour...I think of TIME...
My commute in the mornings can be
a smooth 20 minutes...
or if it is raining...
A HOT 75 minutes...
Sew...it's a love hate relationship for me 
with time..

I saw that photo above that I took in NYC a few 
years back when I thought about what I would
do for this hop and with this fabric...



It's all about time...and rushing...and finding my way 
through a different route when my usual freeway is
at a stand-still. So, I reflected that in my little quilt.




In this quilt as you go quilt...each block boasts of a different
free-motion quilting pattern...




The middle of my little "clocks" boasts of how I get lost
when trying to navigate around all that traffic...
Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's CRAZY!


The back is a road map all it's own...with a few road signs
along the way...
And don't miss my little cushion...that's my car seat! 
When I jump in my little Fiat every morning, I throw my purse
in, followed by setting my coffee down..
and then putting my morning papers in a seat..
So all those words seemed fitting...on a sweet cushion!


Can you see it? That little ruffle was a perfect set of 
Road lines...You know you have to stay inside the lines
when you drive!!!!!


And when I am lucky...all the clocks sync-up and I 
can arrive on-time! The world is in perfect order 
and I am a very happy commuter!


And the entire day follows suit with
calm...awwhhh... I really PRAY 
for those days!!!


And that's how it will start for me..
Each day, in this little place...
with a wee little light on, a comfy
pillow, my little quilt and my favorite
line in my favorite song... right above me
to remind me how the day, no matter
what the commute is like...
When it starts with Him,
It's gonna be a GREAT RIDE!

A Baby Quilt for Adelyn Joy...



In a family of many nephews and no nieces...
with lots of grandsons and no grand daughters...yet...*wink*

It Seams to Be Sew...
that a little Great Niece should be 
cherished!

Meet Adelyn Joy...





My first Great Niece...


Along with that great distinction...
should be a lovely little quilt
just for her...



Built with Sweetwater fabrics...and a soft muslin
backing...this little quilt is a world of firsts too.



It is a first time attempt at free motion quilting
a new design for me on my
Janome 7700 Horizon quilting machine..

Scared to death to ruin this,
one of my very First quilt tops...



I decided to just go for it!
It was really quick and fun too!

Just knowing I now have another set of 
stitching under my belt...
gives me a lot of new confidence 
to keep trying new patterns!




And soon, I hope to be making another one of 
these sweet baby quilts for my other nephew and
his sweet wife when their new baby (gender unknown to surprise)
arrives later this year...


Happy Weekend All!
