Surprise Baby Blocks

Hello everybody!

I have been busy sewing here, I just haven't spent much time on the computer. I am behind on my blog posting.

My friends from the sewing club at my local shop, "Happy Sewing Room" surprised me at the last meeting. Pat came up with the idea to ask everybody to make 6'' blocks for a baby quilt.

All of the ladies were so generous and agreed to make a block and some of them made multiple blocks. As you will see all of the ladies are very talented and made very pretty blocks.

My mother-in-law sent everybody light purple dimple fabric. She didn't know that we were going to paint the nursery almost the same color so the blocks will match the wall color.

Here are all the blocks:

Judy made 2 blocks and a pillow.

Stacey made 4 blocks.

Angi made:

Eleanor made:

Anita made:

Sue made 3 blocks:

Mom - my mother-in-law made 3 blocks (two stars and a spool block).
She had to make a spool block, as she loves sewing.
She is also working on a baby quilt that will be surprise for us.


Karen made 6 blocks:

Brenda made:

Pat made 5 blocks:

Mary Alice made:


Carol made:


Pat thought of everything and brought label for everybody to sign.

I was really surprised and overwhelmed! Everybody put so much time and love into making the blocks! They are truly very talented group of quilters. Pat also brought cake and it was like a second shower! All the blocks were in a pretty box that I will show later.

Thank you ladies!

Those blocks are fabulous and the love from all the women that made them is very special. Be sure to show us the quilt once you have the blocks sewn together, okay?
