Time flies!

Oh my gosh! I can't believe it's been almost 3 months since I last posted. Time sure does get away from us doesn't it? What can I say - this being a new grandma thing is hard work. ;o) I barely have enough time to quilt, let alone blog!

I finished Alivia's baby quilt - finally. She's only 14 months old now! Here's the finished quilt:

The quilting behind her name is what took the longest, but it really helped the name pop. I have decided that the next quilt I make for a co-worker's baby will NOT be this complicated!! I know that compared to some quilts out there, this was a piece of cake, but this was the most complicated I've made so far.

I made the border quilting pretty simple but it was completely perfect for a little girl's quilt.

My latest hexie obsession. I've seen an absolutely beautiful quilt on pinterest and I just have to make a version of it. The inspiration quilt was pink and brown. I'm going with the same, but I think my pinks are a bit brighter though this picture doesn't really do any of the colors justice.

And no post would be complete without my little princess. This is her first experience in a high chair - she was more interested in trying to eat the highchair! Naw, she's not teething! lol. Hard to believe she'll be 6 months old in 2 days. Time really does fly!

That's all I have for today - happy quilting everyone!
