April was a crazy month.  I did a lot of traveling to speak to MS patients.  April changed to May and the craziness followed.  I've traveled 4 weeks in a row.  The good news is my sister has gone with me on each new adventure.  We have taken along bindings to sew to keep us out of the mall and the quilt stores.  It has been nice to be gone but still get work done on the quilts.  An added bonus is that she tries to get here early the day before we leave.  It is a fun day and evening of sewing.

I've got some great quilts for you.  Hopefully the kids who receive them will enjoy them as much as we have.

Fire Engines on the front....

and Dr. Seuss on the back!


This quilt was also donated by someone in the quilt guild.  I think red/black/and white are hard to beat.  You can use it for a girl or boy.

The black backing and graphic blocks make a classic quilt.

This quilt is the same pattern as the one with the fire engines. It is a good example of how different a quilt can look with a change in the fabrics.

Green bugs on the back compliment the bugs on the front.

This is a simple pattern made fun by the fabric.  It is a four-patch with alternating focus fabric squares.

Karen added the backing and some fun quilting.  

Bright greens and blues, dots and stripes make this a eye-catching quilt.

Space aliens make this a kid-friendly quilt.

Simon says....I like these quilts too!!!
