A Baby Quilt For Fat Jazz

My daughters best friend married her husbands identical twin. 
(Did you get that?)

So, my grandson's cousin is also his half sister... genetically speaking.
(are you still following along?)

So... of course, because my grandson has a new half sister and a new cousin and my daughters best friend has a new baby,  I had to make her a quilt!!!

(lol, I am a little sleep deprived as I type!)

I love this color way!!  Such a cute quilt!!!

...and orange peel quilting is my FAVORITE!!!

(The nickname "Fat Jazz" is a terrible inside joke! ...sorry...)

Arcadia Avenue

This was such a fun quilt to work on!

It is is called Arcadia Avenue by Sassafras Lane Designs.

I had so much fun designing the borders.

For the actual blocks, I did a lot of stitch in the ditch,

I wanted them to really pop!

I used The Quilted Pineapples curved templates.

They are AWESOME!

So many cool designs!

Sunday Book Rebiew

I can't sleep, so why not write my #SundayBookReview?

First up #EnnaBurning by #shannonHale. This is the second in the Bayern series and an entertaining read. I like this little world and the people who live there 👍🏻👍🏻

#PrayersForSale by #SandraDallas was AWESOME!  The main characters are quilters!!! I loved it!! The story is set around the women of a small gold mining town in Colorado in the early 1900's. 👍👍

#TheWrightBrothers by #DavidMcCullough was very interesting!  I really enjoyed learning about this remarkable family! (the book never drew this conclusion, but I wonder if the Wright Brothers had Aspergers. Just thinking out loud) 👍🏻👍🏻

#TheLifeWeBury by #allenEskens is a great little murder mystery. Interesting to the last! 👍🏻👍🏻

#IHateYouDontLeaveMe by #JeroldJKreisman is a very good non-fiction book about borderline personality disorder. Insightful and eye opening. 👍🏻👍🏻

What are you reading?
