Favorite Things Friday!

There is a cool linking extravaganza going on at Quilting In My Pajamas

I think this is a fabulous idea, very positive! Stop by her blog and join in the fun!

One of my favorite things has always been baby giggles. Now that I have a son, his laugh is my favorite! And boy can he laugh. He is such a happy guy that I get to see his smile as soon as he wakes in the morning and here his laugh throughout the day. He giggles as we leave the house in the morning and he giggles in the car on the way to the sitter's. He giggles again when I see him after work. I absolutely adore him and his laugh is best sound in the world!

Don't look too Closely but I finished a quilt top!

Its imperfect, but finished and I love it! Of course. I am going to take some classes for sure once I finish my master's degree. For now, I am sort of learning techniques from the internet. I need to learn the basics but I just love to give new easy techniques a try. This quilt is going to be for a friend who is having a little boy. Hopefully she will not look to closely at how the squares do not line up. I think I am going to do some stitching in the ditch for the quilting. This is made from some great flannel fabrics I got at Joann's on Black Friday. What a bargain. I think she will love it and it will feel so good on the baby's skin.


I think this is going to be the year of the baby quilt. I have at least two more to do this year. I know one will be for a boy and I am hoping the other girl will have a girl. I just want to make something pretty and frilly!

The next thing I would like to try is a rag quilt. Check out the tut here
Baby Rag Quilt

Stay tuned for that one.

Finally, as always, just a little more cuteness!
