Sewing Day and Baby Waiting

My mother and my friends and I have this great sewing day get together.  About once a month or so, we get together at someone's house for a sewing day or weekend.  We work on our own projects or we work on something together and eat, then sew some, then eat some more and, well . . . you get the idea. 

Our friend Sue is expecting her first grandbaby any day now and we were a bit nervous about having sewing day at her house this past weekend.  But baby waited and still hasn't arrived yet.  But friend Kim and I got into the baby mood with this project. 

Sewing rectangles.

Sewing more rectangles . . .

This goes together quickly when two are working together!  By the end of the afternoon, this is what we had.

It will get some borders (more white) and four patch corner blocks.  Duck fabric for the back and blue binding.  We think it's very cute.

It's a pattern called Scratch by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.  The fabric is a Moda fabric designed by Sandy Gervais called Objects of Desire.  We cut up charm packs to make this quilt.  We took out all the high heeled shoe fabrics since we don't know whether this baby is a boy or girl. 

The grandmother to be was working on this project:

And my mom was working on this pretty purple pillowcase (try saying that three times fast!)

And we thank the baby for waiting on us to get this far . . .
