Hi Everyone!

February is a really short month with lots of activity around here with family, church,work and on-going art, craft and sewing projects, etc. The month has quickly slipped by.   
The fabrics I ordered on line arrived and have been cut and sewn into strips for the Chinese Coin Baby Quilt I am making for my soon to arrive grandson. 

My DD and I collaborated online to select the fabrics. She has a vision in her head about what she wants the nursery to look like and so....we collaborate to get this 'vision' out into quilt form.

Chinese Coins is a wonderfully  versatile (and easy) quilt pattern that  works well with a bold modern print and your not so typical baby colors. We've selected a palette of greens, browns and blue. 

We will be choosing a background fabric to pull the design together so be sure to check back with me next week to see what progress has been made! 

Until then....
Bee Creative!!

Your fabrics will make a very cute quilt!

Love your journaling as well. Someday I have a hand written list my Mom made of food items in box given to her at Christmas from the community. I think that would make a wonderful journal quilt.
