Levi's Quilt

This is another simple baby quilt, very similar to Asher's.  In fact, it has a couple of the same fabrics in it. Both those babies like the woods.

I did straight line quilting on it, just as I did on Junes.  

I used a flannel for the backing.  These pieced quilts are some of the easiest ones to make.  They go so  quickly.

June's Quilt

This simple quilt is now quilted and given to June.

I got the idea from a quilt that I had pinned.  She had a tutorial for making it easy to piece which I really appreciated.  This is the link for that quilt.

This is showing the backside.  It is flannel.

Let's Fly to the Moon

My daughter who is a teacher asked me to knit some astronauts for their Team Moon project. These astronauts will be flying to the moon as each team completes goals in their classroom.  Which astronaut will get there first? 

I knitted them using the basic pattern for a 9" doll of Jean Greenhowe's.  It was quite fun adding the detail and the oxygen tanks on the back of them.

And an American flag.

These astronauts have their visors down.

The first one didn't have his visor down.  My daughter rejected him.  Too little kiddish, she said.
So he is going to a doctor's son of my grandson.  We appreciate this doctor very much.  The doctor saw me knitting one at the hospital and was intrigued with the detail I was putting on the astronaut.  I decided the doctor's son could get an astronaut

and his daughter is getting this Cinderella.  She is also a variation of a Jean Greenhowe doll.

 See the detailed flower in her hair.

A Couple of New Knits

I just keep knitting for the babies. 
This was a simple little sweater and hat that I made with worsted yarn I had laying around.

I decided to do the stripe pattern from another pic I saw.  It gave me ideas anyways.
I really like the pattern on the sleeves.

and for the hat.

This is a jumpsuit/romper? or what do you call it?  I love thiese things.  I only hope my grandchildren do.

 I did this color so that it could go for a girl or a boy, but in looking at the sweater I think it's a bit feminine, so it will go to a granddaughter.

Even the cuff of the pants are intricate with the cable.

Ravelry link  Ohh...Oh.
  I see  I didn't make a ravelry page for this one, but I put on the link of the other one I knitted that is the same pattern and the same yarn, except for color.

Baby Quilts Keep Coming

Here are 2 more simple quilts that I've put together.
This first one is done and ready to be quilted.  It's very simple and similar to Asher's.  They just go together so fast. 

Now this one is not done.  It's going to get some applique on it.
It is something that I'm copying from a picture.
It'll be fun to see when it's all done.
