I Really Am Working Hard....

I have been getting stuff done....just not really any big quilts.  See, I found out that little man will be home in time for Christmas and so I really want his stocking to be finished.  I had cross stitched a stocking for my hubby and myself and little man needs one too!  So most all of my free time has been dedicated to this (and if I spend all my waking minutes on it there is hope it will get done!)  In the mean time I put together this little quilt. 
It was super simple and fast, just fabric cut into strips and sewn together.  The back is a super soft minkee (I learned I do not enjoy sewing with minkee, but it's softness makes it worth it!) I quilted 1/2 inch away on each side of the seam.  This quilt is smaller than a normal baby quilt, but it's good size for when he's a little bit bigger and can easily drag it around the house!  (Sorry, I don't remember the exact measurements!)   It's not my favorite thing that I've ever made, but it will make a good baby quilt.  It was so fast to make I might make a bunch more...you can never have too many quilts around!

I have another quilt all sandwiched and ready to be quilted...hopefully this weekend!  And this week fabric for the nursery will arrive and I will have yet more things to get sewn by little man's arrival.  It's a good thing I have a November sew in coming up with my KMQG gals!
