There is a child in our community that is pregnant and the ladies of our church have kind of taken her on as their own, but remember I am from a small town and when I saw the ladies of our church I mean less than 10, now there are a few more than that at church but I mean folks that will help her with it. This child is only in the 8th grade and her family will not have anything to do with her now. I am not sure I can do it but I would like to try and make a baby quilt out of flannel for her, for the shower we are going to give her. We do not know who this person is, I am sure if I asked around I could find out but I don't really care, I am just sorry this has happened to her. Anyway, last week someone posted links to fabric for youngsters, well I didn't bookmark it because I didn't know about this child having a baby. Now I need those links. Also, I am just going to do plain ole squares of some sort, because as you know I haven't done anything yet except buy and wash fabric and tried to make a 4 piece square out of squares and they sucked badly. This is going to be my project that I am considering trying to do by hand since I am not going to be able to be at the sewing machine.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Anyone want to do it for me, ROFL,
I am sure everyone will jump at that one. Do you all think that it is
too much for me to take on?
OK while I am at it I am going to post a list of things I want to do
next year and then you all can laugh at me or with me if I don't get
them all done or you can rejoice with me when I do.
1. I want a quilt for my bedroom done in blues and yellows I guess
since I can't find the pink I want and I did break down and buy blue
drapes so I could get rid of my rose ones. Have fabric for this one
2. A lap quilt for my father in a hunting, outdoor theme
have fabric or most of the fabric for this one
3. A cat quilt for my sister
have the fabric for this one
4. A quilt out of the Moda 3 sister's chocolat fabric for my guest
bedroom. Already bought new drapes for it, too.
have the fabric for this one
5. A NC Tarheels quilt for my nephew, even though we live in KY and he
is going to a branch of UK now, but will soon be going to pharmacy
school in Virginia, or at least we hope he is accepted there. And if
I can find the fabric for it.
have no idea where to find the fabric for this one
6. I want to make a couple of quilts for the Methodist children's home
for Christmas next year.
Can use anything for these, so I am sure I have fabric for them also.
7. I still have another sister. LOL
Gotta figure a theme or something for this one.
8. A quilt done in musical notes, etc. for our choir director at
church, which happens to be my best friend's husband.
got the fabric for this
9. One done in cats or musical stuff for our piano/organist, which
happens to be my best friend.
Might have enough fabric for this one
10. This baby quilt
gotta buy the fabric for this one.
11. Those place mats.
You all know I have the fabric for this one.
Now is that too much for me to plan on doing? I figure on one project
a month and they will all be done by machine except maybe the baby one
and if able it may be quilted by machine, also.
Oh, and you all have me ruined, I love fabric even if I have no idea
what to do with it yet.
