2 Finishes and a New Block of the Month

All of a sudden there are prospective baby notices going around and I knew I'd get at least 1 or 2 requests and I was right.  No sooner did I start a coin quilt that hubby came home from work asking for something for his boss's new grandaughter.  The week before I'd put the last stitch in the binding on one so I washed it up and we gave it to the new baby.  I started another boy coins quilt and a baby girl 30's quilt in a Bricks and Stepping Stones pattern.  Finished them both up and went to my local shop (Quilting Possibilities in FR, NJ) and bought the backings from their $5 room.   The boy quilt has already been claimed by my sister for a neighbor's baby.  I don't know how long the girl quilt will last in the finished cabinet but it's going to be ready when it's needed.

I also signed up for a new Block of the Month.  It's the 2012 Designer Mystery BOM thru the Fat Quarter Shop.  I got my first block kit today, It's called "Laundry Days" and it's designed y Anne Sutton of Bunny Hills Designs.  We're using the new "Vintage Mondern" fabric line by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.

Talk about yummy fabrics.....

ROFLOL, here is a big surprise for you, I got my Mystery BOM in the mail this week, too. Did you think you could do something in those colors without me doing it, too.
