First let me show you the beginnings of the baby quilt. I am calling it 'Rubber Duckie'. Every time I work on this one I can hear Ernie from Sesame Street singing the rubber duckie song. Do you remember it? "Rubber Duckie, you're the one, You make bathtime lots of fun....." I am going to machine applique this one. I have all the duckies cut out and ironed onto the backings. I will machine them tomorrow. I have also finished 6 of the 13 alternate blocks. They will all be in different shades of blue. Got to have this one done by the 14th of this month!
Then there is my UFO to finish for this month. The number 2 was pulled by Patchwork Penguin and that number corresponds with my 'Bear Quilt'. I don't know where this pattern came from. All I know is that I have all the pieces cut and most of the bears are done. I just have to do some embroidery for the eyes and nose. I don't know what caused me to put this one away without finishing it. Oh, well, at least I found it with all its fabric - just missing the pattern, but that is not unusual for me.
I can't show you the challenge quilt because it is a secret. I still have to quilt it and put binding on it. That will happen soon, I hope!
I have been seeing the following block on many blogs this month. Apparently it's a weekly sew-along. I did not join it because I figured I already had too much to do this month. I don't have the pattern for this block either, but I saw it on several blogs and I just made it the way I thought it should be. It's a 12-inch block. I don't think I am going to do one every week, but if any of them look interesting, I think I'll make it. I used kids fabrics (horses in this case). This will probably become a small quilt or wall hanging.
