113 Ethan's 2 Year Birthday Curious George Sock Monkey Quilt

A long time ago I found this fun Sock Monkey fabric.  Then, while I rode on the plane to Texas Spring 2013 I copied the Curious George book illustrations onto muslin.  Then, just as I was racing to complete this quilt for Ethan's two year birthday, Auntie Emily said she had some yellow Sock Monkey fabric in the same fabric line!  Viola!  A one of a kind, storybook quilt for Ethan to enjoy.
2 Years Old!

The front would have been blase' without Auntie Emily's yellow Sock Monkey fabric.

I like how the back turned out
Kite flier rescued
George sneaking out of jail
This one made me smile
George knows how to have a good time

112 Cathy's Beautiful Quilt

Cathy was able to get her entire quilt quilted last night with a delicate swirly overall design that danced across the quilt.  She had fun.  I'm so proud of her!  And the quilt is gorgeous.

111 Marcy makes Roy a quilt

Marcy knew the perfect quilt to practice her Long Arm skills for the very first time, would be a snuggly quilt for Roy.  Low expectations = low pressure for perfection.  Marcy decided to start with Corner-To-Corner Curves and soon found she was buzzing right along without having to stop at each corner!  Wow!  Good job Marcy!

109 Tracey Squares & Circles Quilt

Tracey, fastest quilter in the west, dashed in while her girls were at AWANA and quilted her squares-on-squares quilt with circles-on-circles.  What an inspiration she is.  I'm going to be a copy cat!  Once again, fabulous job Talented Tracey!

108 Sally Makes Finn's 2nd Birthday Quilt

Boy oh boy, today was fun!  The house was hoppin' with sewers and quilters.  I was in heaven.  Sally came to quilt her grandson Finn's quilt in time for his 2nd birthday.  Emily came to make pillows for their pretty new couch.  Erica came to repair her blouse.  Cathy came to observe and learn more about Millie.  Tracey came to resolve problems, give us super helpful tips, support Emily's pillow making, remind me of the nuances of my own machine, encourage Sally and advise Cathy.  Tracey... you rock!  All in all "My Kind of Day!"
