This is a lap quilt I started. It is fabric printed with s'mores made by Moda. The fabric came pre-cut in 2 and a half inch strips and the pattern was designed with that in mind. I enjoyed sewing it since it was mindless and quick. I still need to add borders and quilt it.

Since we aren't too far from Valentine's Day, I thought I would post a picture of a quilt I did a few years ago. I still leave it up all year even though it leans toward the Valentine theme.

Mini-Mini Quilt

This is a mini quilt I have been working on. You will notice the sharpie at the bottom as a reference to the size of the quilt. It is definitely more difficult to work on a quilt as small as this. The black cornerstones started out as 1 inch by 1 inch. After you sew them they become 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch. I still need to add the backing and quilt it. Each square represents a different month by the print on the fabric.

The Brill Trolley

We recently rode the Dart train downtown to tour the city in the Brill trolley. A friend of Grants is the engineer and he was able to get it out one night for us to enjoy. It was such a special night since Grant had been wanting to do this for a long time.
