Maybe?



If I start now and don't stop for even a minute until Christmas maybe I'll finish 3 of these in time :o)
Think I can do it??? I'm sure gonna try!
This was a pattern that my mom got sometime in the 80's, but she was busy homeschooling and never got around to making this for my brothers, so she gave it to me a while back when she was cleaning out some stuff and I stuck it back for sometime later. I have thought about it from time to time, but it was never in front of me, so it was always just a thought until I did my organizing last week and decided now is the time if I ever want to get it done. I also thought that I'd better do it now before we have another boy and then I'll have to make 4 :o)
I'm not pregnant by the way, but I guess I just assume that we'll have boys for a while. I could be wrong and I already told Tim that the day we have a girl I need more money and a sewing room because I plan on sewing all day from that point on!!!! Sewing boy stuff is fun, but I'm sure it will be nothing compared to all the lace and frills that I have waiting on me!
Anyway, I just figure we'll never have less than the 3 boys we have now, so I should hurry up and do this before I have less time.

I need 60 12x13 inch squares of muslin for all 3 quilts (20 per quilt), and after Tim helped me with my math we came up with 7 yards at 45 inches wide. That gave a little room for it to shrink in the wash before cutting and it was perfect! Good thing I was very careful cutting, because there was no extra.
I had seen the muslin for $1.99 a yard, so I was planning on $15. But it was on sale so it was about $9 :o)


I can't wait to get started on these!



I love  the tractor and think all the hand quilting will give such a nice touch!


Because I had already planned on $15 I thought it was only right for me to have a quick look around ( because Tim was with the boys waiting on me in the car) and I saw a .50 cents a yard table with this pretty yellow flower gauze. So I couldn't help but get 6 yards when it only cost $3 right? I'm thinking summer jammies shorts shirt robe maybe pants too or use whatever's left and make my own piping for pillows in my room :o)


I can't remember the last time (if ever) that I got 6 yards of something. It's usually just a yard here and there and I put stuff together at some point, so this is quite the occasion! And I got some interfacing, and my total was still only $14!
