Row Addition Baby Boy Quilt! from Busy Hands Quilts

Another 2019 finish that needs it's day to shine on the blog is a Row Addition baby quilt!  


This quilt design is from the book Modern Plus Sign Quilts and is one of many fantastic Plus quilts in the book which is written by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs and Paige of Quilted Blooms.  I made two baby quilts at the same time for their book hop in 2018, but it took me a year to get this one quilted and bound.  You can see the other one right here.

I’m having some Winter Blues….. from Seams To Be Sew

I am definitely blue if there is no snow on the ground during Winter… I love love love snow as some of you know from my postings on my Facebook personal page. I often post pictures when we get snow and we’ve now been weeks without some snow, even a hint of it…. nada… We had such a good start to Winter with 4 or 5 snow storms between October and November but then.. BOOM, they just went away… I’ve never been a fan of the color blue, it does remind me of being down and sad… However ...

Today we begin
