I have signed up to do a block of the month. I don't usually like doing these since I can't be the one to choose the fabric but I jumped and here is block #1.

I like the bright colors in these fabrics and think it will make a nice quilt. In the meantime I have been painting my daughter's old bedroom to get ready for the first grandchild. I am actually going to be babysitting him or her for a month while my daughter in law goes back to work until summer vacation. She is due in early April so will have to go back to work in her school district before the end of the school year but didn't want to start the baby in day care quite yet. So in the meantime I am getting the room cleaned and painted and the crib will be put in there eventually. I cannot believe how many holes in the walls there were. I know as a teen my daughter had many posters but did she have to use 20 tacks on each poster?? Here is the fabric for a baby quilt I started cutting up this weekend. The one with the bows and off white background will also be made into a crib dust ruffle. These fabrics along with lots of more solid looking scraps from my fabric stash will make up a scrappy looking quilt. I just love the turquoise blues and reds together. The walls are a very pale yellow. Then it's off to the thrift, consignment and antique stores to look for some fun accessories to add. That's the fun part!
