Another New Pattern

I couldn't resist playing around with the Equal Marriage symbol. I am thrilled that all marriages are recognized in California and hope that the rest of the world follows.

Living Love is an easy quilt pattern and while I have dominated my rendition with neutrals and a pop of color in the equal sign, it would be great in a variety of color combinations.

One Week Old ...

Are all 1 week olds this animated? Thea Brielle is a true joy and she never ceases to amaze us. I am sure that all grandmas feel this way, don't we.

Three More Patterns ...

Got a good night's rest last night and was able to finish up three new patterns today. This new baby is so much fun and so cute and so much work! I had forgotten how much work they are. We find ourselves helping with the baby, cooking meals, doing laundry and running errands. I think mom and baby are settling down into a rhythm and schedule. Things seem to be settling down.

My 10 year old Granddaughter and my 3 day old Granddaughter. Both in heaven.
Here are my latest patterns. I find myself gravitating more and more toward modern looking quilts.

All The Excitement ...

The new granddaughter has arrived and we are thrilled! Thea Brielle McGinnes was born on July 11, 2013. Everyone has been very busy and very tired and very happy.

I actually found some time to get back to designing and have a couple of quilts in the pattern 'hopper'. Let's Twist Again is an easy and fun quilt. The three different shades of background, border and sashing fabric create a great groundwork for the scrappy pops of color.
