I Feel Good

"Wo! I feel good, I knew that I would now...." (hum to James Brown tune).

Johnny Buck quilt top is done. This is Des' Miss Charm pattern. Contact her, if you're interested in it ($5). I left a couple of borders off, it's supposed to be larger.

However, as much as I adore it, I'm going to sell it in the store.
It was for Harry, but during my Johnny Buck fabric obsession of 2006, I made two other Johnny & Buck blankets for him - a crib quilt & a large cozy, flannel receiving blanket. So I think three might be over doing it. Although I was putting him down for a nap & he was saying, "Feet, feet!" I think he might be getting too big for those other blankets. But guess what --- in addition to his Monkey quilt,

there's a flannel plaid one waiting for him. And then there's those Spacebots that look at me everyday. I'm sure he'll need a blanket out of them soon. I can't make him jumpers, ruffle pants, aprons with rick rack, headbands, barettes, purses, doll dresses, little charm skirts or doll houses. Nope, but I can make him quilts.


  1. I sure am glad I am not the only one who thinks that the "spacebot" fabric is calling to be used.

    That stuff is too cute...although I have a feeling even my youngest boy will say no thank you.

  2. I love the Johnny Buck Fabric! You have inspired me to get out mine and do something with it, but first cooking for Thanksgiving. Darn wish I were sewing.

  3. I love the big red X that quilt has! Maybe it is time to put that fabric aside now :D Although it is DANG CUTE!

  4. That red in the middle makes the whole thing pop. I love it.

  5. someone as cute as Harry should have as much quilt-love as a Mommy wants to make.
