Cowbow quilt

Here is a blue and brown baby quilt made with just blocks and strips. I love EQ. You can create anything. This was a special request quilt for a 2nd cousin on the way. The nursery is blue and brown so the grandmother wanted something like this. I used the Udder Cowboy fabric with the shoofly print for the blocks and the paisley for the border.

Neck Coollers

Thomas and I made 16 Neck Coolers today in preparation to our trip to the Navajo Nation in Arizona. We will be teaching VBS all week in the mornings and maybe working outside later in the day. Neck coolers will be needed to chill us out. Thomas did most of the initial sewing and filling the tubes with the granules. I then would sew the sections for the granules in place. Doesn't he look like he was having fun. He does a great job sewing. We did the men neck coolers in Texas fabric and the ladies in bluebonnet fabric. When we get back home he is going to make one for him with baseball fabric.

Happy 4th of July to you all.
