Easy Street - Part II

Five years ago my daughter Cynthia had this fabulous fabric created using pictures of my babies (oldest now 42) and their babies (my grandchildren). This was created prior to the arrival of my Madie Ann. I have been so conflicted in finding a project to use it on. But when Bonnie Hunter called for a black and white background, I had found my project.  I am having to fussy cut their sweet baby faces, but there will be no saving having to shave some ears or chins, unless the pieces get a little bit larger.  It will be the classic game of peek-a-boo. 

Here are sisters Odessa and Tanea. I will be introducing others as the quilt progresses.
In the meantime I have made my 128 flying geese units and am ready for Part III.

I also want to share my new Christmas toes done by Tatiana...she never disappoints me with her designs, pictured here on one of my selvedge crocheted rugs.
I spent yesterday at my grandson's 9th birthday party at Niton Junction (90 minutes west of Edmonton) and it was a picture perfect display of hoar frost.


  1. Looking good Kathy! Love the baby fabric. I'm still not on any step yet - too many things going....Maybe a New Year project for me.

  2. SO intriguing! Can't wait to see your finished project!

  3. Your quilt will be so fun with those baby faces on it, Kathy! I love the photo of the hoar frost. Gorgeous view. And cute toenails, too.

  4. I love that fabric! I've been thinking of making a custom fabric featuring my 4-year-old grandson's artwork; I think you helped me make up my mind to do it. I lived in Edmonton as a kid and still remember how cold it used to get - brrr.

  5. Wow, what a project to use your crazy baby fabric.
