Here are four finished block's from Gramma Todd's quilt. We go away with DH's family one weekend each Spring to celebrate Mother's Day and Gramma's Birthday. Its usually a weekend in May, however his aunt and uncle will be out of country this year until late May, so we're going the first weekend in June - gives me a little extra time to finish this quilt! : p It wasn't until about an hour after I took this picture that I discovered that one of the blocks was put together wrong. The one on the lower right corner had the second row of logs sewed on backwards.....Thankfully that was the only one....
Here are the rest of the blocks...looking good!

The picture looks like the bottom left corner has been cut off, but its just the door jam (I had to lay the quilt over the back of the couch and then stand in our bedroom to take the picture).

Ben has been asking for a quilt for almost a year now. About 6 months ago we went to the local quilt shop and he picked out several different flannel fabrics and requested a rag quilt. These quilts are easy as can be (espeically because I didn't put any batting in the squares because we wanted it more lightweight) I should have finished it months ago. My little angel has been so patient with me! This morning I gave him all of the squares and told him to arrange them any way he wanted. There are all kinds of different fabrics and they don't really match, but he loves them and he's so proud of his quilt! So, I've promised myself tonight that I'll finish it for him. The boys go to bed around 7pm and Numb3rs (I love FBI shows) doesn't start until 10pm. That should give me plenty of time to get the top together and I can snip the edges while watching TV. I'll toss it in the washer and it'll be all ready for him when he wakes up tomorrow. What a great way to start your weekend - with a brand new snugglie quilt! (and then I can cross something off my UFO list!!)

This weekend I'll be starting a quilt for DH's grandmother that is to be her birthday/mother's day gift (we'll be celebrating the first weekend in June. I need to get a move on!). Her living room decor is mostly mauve. I will be making the Pineapple Blossom pattern from Bonnie's website.
Do I make the quilt with just greens and use the borders to incorporate the pinky/mauves?

Since I ran out of pieces for that quilt, I decided to play with my crumbs. I think I'll trim all of these up into 6 1/2" squares and put them in a nine patch with some soft pink fabric for the alternate squares. I'll put a border around it and it'll make a sweet quilt for a preemie little girl.
There is enough pieced crumbs right now to cut 6 squares. I'll keep crumbing until I get enough for two preemie quilts...I think I'll call them Sugar Cookie quilts because they are made out of the sweetest little crumbs.
