One Monthly Goal and Baby blanket is done.

My one monthly goal is to quilt my Quilter's Garden.   I designed this quilt as an online swap a few years back and met so many wonderful quilters.  Thanks for the memories and the blocks.  About one block in each row was made by a swap member.  I do sell this pattern in my Craftsy Shop listed in my side bar.

I did complete last month's goal but forgot to link up.  I have been busy and was away for the birth of my 3rd grand baby.

My daughter got her baby safely here last week. She is so little and sweet. Being a grandma is so wonderful!  She was 6 lbs 14 oz.

I finished the crochet work on this blanket just in time for the baby shower in two weeks.  It is for my nephew's first baby.  I made the top entirely from scraps cutting out squares in different sizes.  This was a cute way to use up those leftovers.

This is one of my 3rd Quarter Finish-Along Goals.  (See my original goal post here.  It is number 10 in the list.)

I have been doing lazy sewing for the past couple of weeks.  I come home tired and just chill instead of sew.  I hope to get the bug again soon and power down.  I have met my major monthly goals all year and need to keep my stamina up.  For my 18 in 2018 I have accomplished everything so far except for some applique' work on my Diamond Hill quilt.  I have finished 3/4 of that goal and need to squeeze in the rest.  If I can get that finished as well as my Oct, Nov, and Dec goals then I can be 100% for 2018.

Awwww. Congratulations to all. She is so tiny and so adorable.

I really like that crocheted edge on the blanket. That's a great idea.

I got so excited about the baby that I forgot to say how cute that row quilt is. Each block is fabulous.

CONGRATULATIONS DEANA... I am so happy for you being a grandma again and everything went well. Of course, I love your row by row. It is a great design. Your mojo will come back when you are ready. Remember quilting is a hobby, it's not your life. HEALTH AND HAPPINESS IS.....
