A couple quilts I've been working on this winter

Although the sewing room here in the rental home is very, very, tiny.... I've enjoyed working on some blocks and today got my rows sewn together into a quilt top. Ta-Da!

It's called Hand Me Downs and I've made it 100% using cut up men's cotton button down shirts.  I just love the colors and the soft texture.  It's sure to be a favorite sofa quilt in the future :)

Antoher quilt that I've been working on and is neeeeearly large enough is this one. Although I love our King sized bed... it is a huge task to make quilt for it.  Ideally I'd love to have one for each month to change out, but I'll just have to settle for a couple as it takes forever.... and ever!

Did you see my little "Monkey Helper" in the photo below???  Olivia was so willing and ready to help hand me pins off my magnetic pin holder Sunday afternoon. :)    (Yes. Yes, I know there are boxes still in the sewing this point, anything still boxed up is just gonna have to stay that way until we buy our new home.)

We only have my 1st ever quilt that I made for David before we married that we use on our bed and it's not quite wide enough but we make it work... at the time he had a King size waterbed so hangover amount wasn't considered - just enough to tuck in each side.... but this one will fit the bed or ELSE. lol
I took this photo today, outside hanging over the neighbor's fence.  Aren't all those scraps scrumptious!  ;)
