Last fall I found some really sweet Jelly Rolls (on sale) that I thought would make great quilts for the three new babies due to arrive starting in early December and continuing into January of 2015. I knew that one was suppose to be a little boy and one was suppose to be a little girl. Which made picking these Jell Rolls and easy decision. I found them on sale a Missouri Star Quilt Company. If you have never visited their site, you ought to. (right now!) https://www.missouriquiltco.com/ Sign up for their daily specials. I love this company and Jenny..... more on that later....back to my blog after getting a bit side tracked.
As it turned out Landon Alexander Tietz was the first to arrive in November. He caught me off guard since I was expecting him in mid December. I had the quilt top maqde but it was not quilted yet! He arrive November 19, 2015. Landon is my first Great Grandson. I had hoped to get Landon's quilt done before Christmas so his Aunt Elizabeth could take it home to him but the holiday mad house got in the way. I sent it to him in mid January instead. I used a pretty blue Minky on the back. It makes a baby quilt so soft!

Then came Isabelle Semp, my great niece, who arrived on December 17. She was a little passed her due date. Isabella got this sweet pastel quilt last week while her Grandma Pam and I were in Florida visiting our sister. Derek tells me that it goes great in her room. She is a sweet little girl. I'll have to ask the proud parents if I can post a photo of each of them. Gotta ask first these days.

I used Purple Minky on her quilt. I gave her a purple baby blanket too. With any luck at all she will love purple as much as I do!
Things have finally settled down into the dead of winter..... and I have plenty of projects to keep me busy. I am planning to get more blogging in to show you what I have been working on. So stay tuned!
