Another quilt top finished

I finished up another flimsy this morning.  I am making 4 quilts for my side of the family that are all nearly identical.  I have added grey ribbons to the bottom of the quilt for the battle that we are fighting with my Dad and brain cancer.  I am hoping to get this one basted and quilted tonight.

I am linking up with Fabric Tuesday, Show and Tell Tuesday , Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop? and Finish it Friday.

New Neice

My brother and sister-in-law just had a baby on Sunday.  I love my nephews, but I am so excited to finally have a niece.  My Grandma always knitted hats and booties for my girls and my cousins' children when they were born.  She now has dementia and can't do this any more.  I have all her old knitting and crochet stuff and used a pattern that she purchased years ago (it was $0.39) and made Kinley a hat, booties and little mittens.  My sister-in-law has since asked me to make Kinley another hat which I am going to whip up over Thanksgiving.

Back in the saddle

My nephew turned 2 last week and is obsessed with fish.  The blue fish are made with fabric from his baby quilt and the crabs are fabric from his Christmas present.  Needless to say he loved it!

Trying to get a photo of him in the shirt was near impossible...he's 2 and on the go.
