Bowtie Quilt

Last night I remembered that I had a baby shower to go to on Friday. I didn't feel like hauling 4 kids to the store to find a gift, so I figured I'd throw together a simple quilt this morning. 

It took me about 5 hours start to finish. I'm sure I could have gotten it done a little faster than that, but I had to take care of the kiddos while I made it. 

The idea from this quilt came from here. She has some really good quilts.

I ended up using some left over batting that I had and I am LOVING the feel of this blanket. It has a good weight to it, but it's still soft. I wouldn't mind a queen size quilt like this one.

Pyrex and quilting...

Since I haven't found much Pyrex lately I thought I'd post a pic of Pyrex I already had. 
It's been holding all the squares I've been quilting. 
I'm thinking I'll turn it into a queen size quilt. 

So, until more Pyrex shows up, I'll probably end up posting a lot of the sewing projects I've been doing.
