I finished backing (with the green white and yellow check) quilting and binding the Snoopy quilt. I also made a pillow case with the quilt fabrics. Here they are:

I spent this Pearl Harbor Day building a quilt for my youngest grandson. Somewhere in his collection his dad had a Snoopy Dog wearing a leather bomber jacket and scarf with goggles... I hope he can find it and give it to his little boy. Backing, batting and quilting will come next.

I made and delivered another 'Love you to the moon and back' baby quilt for my niece's baby shower held today. This year, I backed it with a strawberry print on yellow...

Our granddaughter is turning three this week, and we have just endured three week of 90+ degree weather, with little to no rain. I made her a little sun outfit and a matching 'flimsy' quilt ... Flimsy quilts are designed with a front and back but no batting.

The month of February slid by on a pack of ice in very cold weather. I kept warm making half a dozen comfort quilts to restock the police cruisers, ambulances and fire apparatus. I ran out of the Dalmatian fabrics but found another print for the fire trucks. Here's a picture of one of the new ones.
I also spent much of February collecting Featherweight machines to practice restoring and gifting / reselling them. I made a few 'slip covers' for them, too. And in the rest of the time I made more rotary cutter sleeves and zipper pouches. Enjoy the photos!

Heard yesterday that a friend needed a quick gift for a child with autism... I let her know that I had jigsaw puzzle fabric and would make a comfort quilt for him. It measures 44" square, with a solid green back, print front, and four different colors for the binding. I used my favorite diagonal serpentine stitch for the quilting. I love my walking foot! I'll get it to her this afternoon.

Yesterday I made a zipper pouch to hold sewing essentials for my grandson's best girl, and today I made a rotary cutter sleeve that matches it. Pellon fusible fleece, two 9" squares, (print outside and solid k blue inside) folded in half and closed with the overlock stitch on my Bernina 125. My friend Ann Lainhart had designed the pattern a few years ago, and I carried hers in Quilters' Quarters with a little note on the basket that said "Of course you could make one for yourself ... but will you?" 😉
Now to make more rotary cutter holders for friends and family!

I've spent much of the past week making comfort quilts for the police, fire and ambulance vehicles here in town. And now I'll start the new year's page with the first two quilts I've made this year. This fabric is 100% quilt quality cotton (though it is printed to look like flannel) and the quilts I make of it are 44" square, with a single layer of Warm and Natural 80 / 20 batting. The backs will vary as I work my way through left over bolts in Quilters' Quarters. I'll order new bolts of the public safety prints as needed. Here are the first two this year; one backed with blue with white snowflakes, and one with red with white flakes. I quilted it in squares and machine bound it with a 2 1/2" folded strip.
