A few people asked where I got the Rock-a-Bye Rhymes fabric. I'll tell you a little secret. I love looking for fabric on using this site:
That way you can see which shops have the fabric you are looking for and then compare prices. I saw this fabric going for $16.99 a yard but was able to find it for something like $6.00 at a place having a sale. The site is great for discontinued fabric!

All that being said I have now finished two football quilts for my boys' room. One for each bed. They love them. I'm mostly glad to be done. Yeah!

Once your shape is cut out move it to your ironing board and spray it with spray starch. I just use the cheap kind you can buy at Target for 99 cents.

I'm pretty sure my sister-in-law does not read this quilt blog... however, just in case I'll just show the fabric for this cute quilt. I ended up getting the pattern and the fabric to make the one I saw. I made the first block and it turned out really cute. I may need to make one for my baby girl........
One thing I've noticed since I had a baby girl is that there is tons of cute baby boy fabric and patterns out now! When my boys were born there was very little boy fabric and it wasn't that cute. American Quilting had several darling baby boy quilts and lots of fabric. I was very tempted to make another baby quilt for my 3 and 6 year olds! I also loved this Puppy Love pattern. I'm really, REALLY not an animal person, but I think this turned out so cute. I'm going to have to think about it.

My quilting goals for this week include:
Quilt and bind Jake's football quilt (it's been a year)
Work on Black Diamonds so I have enough done I can post a picture on here.
Finish Sweet Cheeks
Ok so these have been my quilting goals for the last few weeks. We'll see how it goes. I also want to paint my living room. We'll see which gets done.

Hopefully now that school has started and we are in some sort of routine I can post more often... and get a little more finished!
