Easily, the most helpful item to add to a quilting arsenal. Walking presser foot.

4 finished quilts and 2 to go!

Here are the 3 finished baby quilts.   I'm happy to say I sold the green and pink one already!   I'm so excited!

The blue one I finished up just before the 16+ inches of rain we had here on the east coast so I didn't get a line shot of it until now.  

Baby quilts just make me happy.  I keep thinking about snuggling up in a chair with a sweet, soft little fuzzy head tucked into my chin.   Some of my most favorite parts of being a mom.  That quiet, middle of the night rocking on the chair with a little sweetie-pie.   :)  

Ok, sappy done.   

Did get the chance to finish the quilting on a new Downy Quilts for Kids project as well.  
LOVE the turtles!   Much more my style in color choices than the first one.  

Isn't he cute???

Now, up next - 2 more baby things.  One pink and one yellow for 2 friends  :)

baby quilts and hatching a plan

The economy is not-so-hot right now.   People all over are tightening their belts and trying to get by with less.  This is not a big news flash to anyone of you.   Same goes here for me.  With 3 kids and a mortgage on a house I'd like to keep, I need to figure out a way to keep the finances rolling. 


I thought, since "I make stuff" why not make stuff and sell it on etsy?  I mean, I would like to think I make some nice things, so maybe someone out there in computerland would rather not follow the instructions here, but buy the finished product outright. 

Here's the first of the items I'm listing on etsy.    3 baby quilts I've made from the 9-patch leftover squares from the Olive quilt.  Each is an Irish Chain.   One blue, one green/yellow, one pink/purple.
