Pinwheels and Ladybugs

 I finished her up!  She's been sitting around for oh so long, patiently waiting...and now...She's done!  I'm not sure what makes me shelve a quilt.  I have several.  It's not that I don't want to finish them, it's just that for various reasons some quilts just need to simmer.

I also finished a couple of little totes for some friends of my Mama.  I really like the blue/green one.  :)
My Little BoHo quilt is coming right along.  I finished sewing on all the dresdens.  This pattern is really just a Double Irish chain and I put some Dresdens in the white space.  

Hope your week is going well! -Little Mama Hen

Mini Sleeping Bag

 My Grand Niece was over yesterday and she forgot her little lovey.  He's a tiny little tiger that she carries around everywhere.  So, I made him a little quilt to stay cozy while he's visiting. :)

Flip it over and it's a Mini Sleeping Bag!  I think he'll be just fine until he's back safe in Little Queen's arms.

-Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Little Helper

This little quilt top just got Finished!!! I've had the blocks ready to sew together for over a year.  This was one of those 'many' projects that just got shelved while I got distracted with other projects and such things.  I'm quilting her now, but she's about to be shelved again until I have time to go to the fabric store and pick up some binding.
 And I'll give you one guess who 'Helped' Mama make the beds this morning...

 Little MaoMao insists on doing whatever I'm doing.  He's such a darling, well most of the time. Sometimes he's just plain naughty, but I still love that little darn cat.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! -Little Mama Hen

Baby Quilt Squares

I just finished up another baby quilt.  She's 36"x 48" and just so darling.  Last year my mom gave me a magazine 'Love of Quilting'(March/April 2013) and this pattern was on the front cover.  It was designed by Mary Fons and was called Emerals (Her quilt had shades of green).  I'm thinking that I'll do this pattern again with maybe violet and charcoal or Navy with reds and yellows and oranges, so many possibilities!  

It's sunny and warm outside and I hope to do a lot of playing outside with the kids this weekend.  Maybe I'll even take them to the pool; the water will be way to cold for me but my little waterbugs probably wont care a bit.  

I hope that your weekend is full of beautiful sunshine and lots of laughter. -April @Little Mama Hen.

Baby Quilts

 When I first started quilting a few years ago I had no table no chair and a very clunky sewing machine.  I sat on the floor and sewed.  I probably would still be sewing on the floor; however, my ever sweet and loving husband got me a table, a new sewing machine and he's always looking to see what else he can set me up with.  :)  It's so very wonderful to have someone that looks out after me.
My daughter's nickname is Ladybug and so I'm always looking for things I can add little ladybugs to.  This little quilt needs some border fabric and she'll be ready to bast and quilt.

Last year I made This QUILT for the Hands 2 Help charity.  I have one ready for this year too.  I'll show it soon.

Enjoying this stormy Florida day.  -Little Mama Hen
