Making Simple Things

So many things I would like to make.  I have an improv quilt on my mind but need more time to spend with my thoughts.  Those Transparency Quilts are haunting my sleep.  Right now with my intense work schedule and vacation just around the corner (I have not packed yet) I am settlling for some simple things.

Just an easy center panel with a couple of borders.  It is flannel and covered with monsters!  Our own little red haired monster celebrated his 2nd birthday on Christmas day so we celebrated when the holdays were done.  It is about 60x60 so a good size for him.  Most importantly for me is that it is a finish!!   It's nice to have a finish even though I don't have as much time to sew right now.

I started and finished these two doll quilts today.  Simple and fun and finished!  There is a little girl and her dollies that will love them!  A little yellow marble flannel for the back and some easy quilting.

I am hoping this little one loves these pink ballerinas!

Who doesn't love this Heather Bailey?  This is one of my very favorite prints.  Just love the big flower.

These are in the washer and will soon be ready to go to a new home.

So it is not always about creating for me.  Sometimes I just need to touch fabric, hear my machine run and every now and then get a very easy finish.  It's good for my sewing soul!
