Quick Baby Quilt for Caleb

This was a fun quilt to make. I bought an end of bolt some years ago and decided to use it for a quilt for Caleb (a quilt to have at our house for him). I really like making the blocks. These blocks are the same blocks that I made for Noah's quilt. I quilted the top with white thread and used a cute fabric with anchors on it for the backing. All the fabrics used in this quilt came from my fabric stash!

Community Service Quilt Finished

I really haven't been in the mood to do any piecing or quilting lately. Last week while cleaning and sorting in my sewing room the following project was found. I finished the binding tonight. It really feels good to have a project done!

Well, I've been distracted! Our newest grandson was born early! Mom and baby are doing well! I won't be posting pictures of him until I talk to his mom about that. But, I'm posted the latest project I have finished. I made bibs and burp pads for the baby. My other distraction has been the garden. I'm amazed at these cherry tomato plants. I've never had any tomato plants grow that tall before. There are 2 plants in the pot. My husband is 6'2" tall and he's on a step stool. I've decided to top the rest of the tomato plants. The plants need to be a size we can reach easily. I have been thinking about quilting. I just haven't been able to get any piecing or quiting done. I hope to get more done soon.

Play Day

I have been wanting to pick blueberries for a very long time. I heard about Moorehead's years ago and never made it out there. Today we left about 8am and got there about 9am. There are 2 parking areas and I was really amazed to see so many people there. There were about 40 cars in 2 parking areas. We received 2 buckets and started for the orange marker. Below is a picture of the check out area.
There are 20 acres of blueberry plants. There was a group of preschool children there.

There were people of all ages picking blueberries and having a great time.

It's amazing to see all the ripe berries just waiting to be picked.

My husband and our grandson picked a lot of berries.

Our grandson was really proud of his bucket full of blueberries. We ended up with 10 pounds of berries at 1.50 a pound. I plan to freeze half of them right away. I'll be baking blueberry muffins the next couple of days. We had a lot of fun today and we'll have to do this again. Blueberries are ripe here in southeast Texas from late May through the end of July.
