I am very excited my new custom cut cutting mat is here. It covers my entire 4 by 7 table. Now I can just lay out my fabric and cut. This will be great for larger works.
My son David made this for his nephew.

I’ve been doing a lot of sewing and quilting, but not much blogging. My daughter and I spent several days making scrap quilts for our community backpack program. This program gives kids clothes and blankets when take from meth homes.
I have also made two large fleece baby quilts. One for a friend and one for my soon to be grandson.
I have spent a few days each week helping some home schoolers work on quilt blocks for the school block challenge in Paducah. These quilts were done by girls age 4-12.
My latest endeavor was to make some fleece quilt with angels for a 2 and 3 year old whose house burnt down last weekend. These were designed by my 11 year old and me. We have some other angel designs we would like to make into quilts at another time.
I am still working on my stations of the cross, my triple Irish train boarder, and our challenge quilt for my guild as well as a Christmas wall hanging.
