I just finished a second tiny turning twenty. This one was for my friend Jessica's baby. Instead of doing the quilt-as-you-go sashing this time, and because I'm not very good at it, I decided to do it the regular way and add borders instead. Shanda quilted it on her longarm-and did the binding. It turned out very soft and sweet, I think! Now, I'm ready for someone to have a girl. I have two more boy babies coming (not personally, mind you, but in my family,) and I have fabric purchased for their projects. But I'm kind of in the mood for pink!

I am pretty late to post our adventures at the shop hop. I guess I have been too busy quilting and loving all of my great fabric finds! Shanda and I hit all of the stores, some twice and some not on the hop in two days! Some of our favorites were Elaine's Quilt Block and Quilts Etc Etc. We of course always love the Corn Wagon too. My mom joined us for part of the fun and we ended up in a Hula Hooping contest at the Corn Wagon. It was a tight race until they made us walk while Hula Hooping and I just couldn't beat my mom at that so she was the winner! I found fabric for two new quilts. We had better get quilting so we can go on the next shop hop!
