Little of This, Little of That

Tuesday I got the itch to stitch up something quick, so I made this little quilt - don't even know if there's a name for this block. Measures about 14" x 20" finished.

I finally finished hooking my row rug - now I need to finish the edges. I usually whip with yarn, but this time I'm going to try a crocheted edge. Wish me luck while I try to figure it out!

My little grandson moved from his crib to a twin sized bed a few months ago. I've been collecting fabrics to make him a new quilt and I think I finally have what I need. This should work up quickly and it'll be fun to work with these bright colors that are not part of my normal palette. The background will be a plain white, and the grey polka dot at the bottom of this pile will be the back of the quilt.

I made my new header months and months ago, and then couldn't get it to load. I found the picture and tried again the other day - voila!

Your little quilt is adorable.
Your row rug looks quite large.
You are going to have fun making that quilt for your grandson. I'm looking forward to see it finished. I'm sure it will look beautiful.

Your header looks great. I've had trouble getting my header to post larger the last time I tried to change mine. Blogger is so finicky...

Have a great weekend.

Love that little quilt. Sometime we should do a small swap. It would be fun to exchange with you.
Yes, when do we get to see the whole row rug. You've got me so curious with all of the little peeks.
It is refreshing to make a child's quilt and use some bright things for a change, isn't it?
I like your new header. I practically had to wrestle blogger to the floor to finish my new post. Sometimes it is so maddening

I am hoping you show your Row Rug in whole... It looks amazing just from the small peeks you have been showing ! The colors for your grandson's quilt are fabulous.

Love your new header! Isn't it hard to pick out bright fabrics? I sure do struggle with it - but the quilt will be awesome when you get it finished. Not nice of you to tease us with that rug! I want to see it all!

Your new header looks great. I keep planning to update mine but it never seems to happen. Can you show us your full rug when it is completed? It looks wonderful

I love that little quilt and it's design. Love those colors too.
Your rug hooking is so pretty. Those are also some wonderful colors you've put into it.

Baby quilts are fun to make. They are out of my quilting box these days, but so cute in the end.

The headed looks great. I am afraid to mess with mine because it took me so long to figure out how to do it.
I love the little quilt and look forward to seeing your finished rug!

Hi Gayle,
Your hooking amazes me. Can't wait to see it totally finished. I think the fabrics for your grandsons new spread are so fun and perfect for a little man. Love, love the little sewing machine in your header. If I don't get back to sewing I will have nothing to share at our Dog Kennel Quilt Show.
hugs,
Jann
