Lucy's Crab Shack

I love Lucy's Crab Shack by Sweetwater. LOVE IT.  I ordered a jelly roll and put this simple rail fence quilt together.
And this is my favorite print.  I love the clothesline with the pink polka dot bikini.  It makes me so happy!!!
Pardon the pics - it was early and I'm 8 weeks preggo and I didn't put as much effort as I normally do into my picture taking.  This is the whole quilt - it's not to big and not too small.  Just right for my porch.
I'm putting Halloween blocks together now - I will post pics soon, stay cool everyone!!!

What I've been up to...

It doesn't seem like it's been since NOVEMBER that I blogged.  But there is proof and it's true.  Many things have happened since November.  On a sad note, my father in law passed away New Years Day from a long sickness.  On a good note, Mike and I told him that we were expecting our 3rd baby.  He was absolutely thrilled!!! Melissa Lynn will be here on August 7th, 2012.  Wow!!! That's 8 weeks away!!!
I've got the quilting bug again.  I'm trying to utilize it because after the baby arrives, I will be quite tired busy for a few months.  My daughter moved into her big brother's room and I made the above quilt for her new "big girl bed".  The pattern is "Off Track" by Cluck Cluck Sew and the fabric is Ruby by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.  This pattern was SO easy and I love the way it turned out.  The jelly rolls had green in them but I left them out because my son's bed is a Spiderman theme and I wanted to keep the colors similar.
 Folded and bound.  Just need to make a label and stitch it on.
I laid out the quilt and the kiddos immediately started "posing".  I love this one.
Love my son's expression in this one.

 This one is for my niece, Maddelyn.  I gave her the fabric and showed her how to use my sewing machine.  She designed it and pieced it together and I quilted and bound it for her.

My next projects are for Halloween.  We will be planting our pumpkins next week and I'd like to see if I can sell some Halloween quilts at our pumpkin patch this year. Yeah!!!  However, I really need to get it all done before the new baby is here or it will be waiting until next year.
