Let's play a game....

This is where I start with...
Long time no see.... or Hello Again...Hello.
How about this: Funny thing happened on the way to the blog...LAST JULY!

But let's not digress. Simply put, GRAND BABIES.
I now have them, REALLY LOVE them...but have also now, found a way to balance it all... 
Maybe.  We'll see.

It's been a fun first year with my little Holdyn...
and soon to be first year with little Riggins...
so let's just see them right off the bat and get it out of the way...
I know you will see my delimma when you see those little faces....

Holdyn Kale / First Birthday Party w/ CAKE

Little Riggins.. 8 months old...and HAPPY!
 
Sew....let's get down to the business at hand...I REALLY HAVE BEEN SEWING...

I have a sweet friend that will have an almost Christmas baby boy...soon....and this one was for him...
There's a lot of pictures today...(it's been nearly six months since I last posted) but there's a fun contest at the end!


You know the drill..sew your strips together and cut...then make a little block...

 
Then just mix your borders around to suit your eye...

 
Once you get the right arrangement for yourself...sew those blocks together!!!


 
I wanted this to be a boy quilt..so I added some Kona Charcoal on the back
and quilted it "squared"...

 
Here's a closer look...I loved it.

 
Of course...being the bunny lady...(oh yes, I wear OTHER hats when I am not Gigi...)
I just had to add a few of these little cuties around the edge...
Not a popular thing, but I wanted the bunnies to show...
So, I made the back of the binding just a little wider to let my bunnies dance!

 
And once it was all finished...this is how it looked.


 
I love this line ...

 
and that Charcoal is never NOT going to be my favorite Kona Color...
 
 
Sew...here's the contest...
If you know the fabric line on the front of the quilt, or you recognize the binding...
Send me a comment and tell me what it is...
 
I will draw on Friday, December 14th
and the winner of all the CORRECT answers
will be mailed all the scraps from this project
 and one other one.......and even a surprise charm pack!!!!
 
Who wants to PLAY?
 
Here's to coming back...
Just in time for Christmas!

  1. It took me some searching, but I found it! The binding fabric is Ric Rac Rabbits, Bunny Hop by Creative Thursday!
    It's so good to have you back! Your quilt is going to be so cute, but not as cute as those grandbabies!

  2. You are some friend. It's Puttin On The Ritz by Bunny Hill Designs. I knew I'd seen it before, but just couldn't remember what it was called or who had made it. But I FOUND it. And it goes so well with the binding fabric and I LOVE the gray on the back and I love the quilt full stop. What a lucky baby he is going to be. Your grandsons are just gorgeous but I would expect no less seeing as you are their GiGi.
