I used different blues and purples for Noah's quilt. I love those colors, so I hope he does. He loves to play with cars and one day while he was here, he preferred a blue one. So I assumed blue is his color. LOL It is a Yellow Brick Road pattern. I quilted 3 different sized circles in each block. You will have to forgive Aeris. She wouldn't get off of the quilt. I put her down, but she jumped right back up. I just figured she was giving her seal of approval. (grin)
Here is a closeup, so you can see the circles a little better.And of course, we have to have a picture of the back. I love those backs. There's Aeris again.Izabella's quilt is a Yellow Brick Road too. I used bright fabrics in it. I found this wonderful Winnie the Pooh fabric for the back. Hazel says she likes to lay on it and look at all the bright colors. That was my idea. I quilted 2 inch squares over the center and Baptist fans in the borders. This quilt should work for her for a couple of years, then I will fix her another quilt kind of like Ava's. I am thinking maybe a Sunbonnet Sue quilt, but may change my mind by then.
Here is kind of a closeup.
And of course, that beautiful pink back.
I also want to say a big 'WOOHOO!' to my friend Bren. She lost 3 pounds this week. I think she told me she has now lost 30 lbs. Isn't that great? I plan to start back on the Atkins diet tomorrow. I probably won't be real strict with it, but I just have to take some of this weight off. Nothing like a weekend spent playing with 4 grandbabies to show you how important getting healthy is. (grin) I know I keep saying this, but I really plan to start exercising as well. I was hoping for warmer weather so I could get out and walk, but that isn't happening, so I guess I will exercise right here in the house. I have to get in better shape or the garden work will kill me. (big grimace) Sorry, but I am just not brave enough to post my starting weight. Let's just say it made my mouth drop open and eyes widen this morning. I took my measurements too. Also not a pretty sight. I wrote everything down with the date. We shall see where I am in one month. My goal is to lose 10 lbs. What should my reward be if I reach my goal? Nothing to eat. That is what got me into this mess in the first place. I know. I get to buy an extra yard of fabric for every 10 lbs I lose. I like that as a reward. You notice I say an 'extra' yard. I have promised myself to not buy any more fabric till June. (Now I doubt that I will be able to keep that promise, but it sounds good. hehe) I really need to use from the stash. It is getting out of control. So, by Feb. 27th, I hope to be 10 lbs lighter. (But I sure wouldn't be upset if it was more. LOL) That is great, because my birthday is March 2nd. If I am going good, I won't be so tempted to eat bad things for my b-day.
