Catching Up 11/1/2010

This past week I made a Little Bo Peep costume for my granddaughter Reghan for Halloween.  The outfit didn't cost much, since I used fabric from stash and lace given to me by quilting friend Judy P.  I spent less than $10 on a zipper, spool of ribbon and elastic to make an outfit which included a dress, pantaloons, skirt and a bonnet.  Not bad!  Reghan looked really cute as Little Bo Peep.  Her baby sister Piper was darling as a lamb.

Last night I started working on Baby Q again.  It's a baby quilt in a square in a square pattern.  I pieced together the backing using leftover chandelier fabric and solid pink, both used on the quilt top.  I should be able to finish the quilt by Tuesday night at the latest.

Later this week I plan to get back to the Road to California quilt which I started on my quilting retreat.  I expect it to be a quick finish.  The next step is to create lots of four patches, then assemble the Road to California blocks.  I made the half square triangles on my retreat.

I haven't taken the time to upload photos of my son's Superman quilt yet.  I'm hoping to post about it this weekend.
