The Boy

Or more precisely, the gingerbread boy. My granddaughter is calling her yet to be born brother, the boy. They are not telling anyone the name until he is born.
I am not so sure about my fabric choice as it looks a little mushy, but I am not changing it.

I inherited my grandma's button box and found these 3 red buttons that will work perfectly. I have not sewn them on yet, I like to do that once it is quilted.

So this is what I got so far.....the boy may just get changed........

I picked these up today at my LQS, the Quilt Block in Exton. The bottom one is for our December 10" block Swap, the bee fabric may make it into the new grandson's baby quilt and I couldn't resist the top one.

I also picked up these beautiful zippers that may end up in another Sew Together Bag.

On my never ending quest to find some healthy snacks, I found these at Target today. Only dried organic apples and organic cinnamon. Nice and crunchy. the perfect thing to keep you from raiding the chocolate chip bag when you come home starved (don't even pretend you haven't raided the chocolate chips)!

How many of you out there got snow last night? We were shocked when we went to bed at how hard it was snowing! We still have some in our backyard, is this a sign of things to come?



  1. The bee fabric is adorable! I shouldn't love bee fabric as I am allergic to them! Luckily getting close to them on fabric is okay!

  2. I love your gingerbread boys little ric rac feet and the buttons look like M&Ms. We didn't get snow here, we've got bushfires blazing nearby. So far we're safe but there's lots of smoke and helicopters flying overhead. Those apple chips sound delicious!!

  3. I think your block is doesn't look mushy to me in the pictures. So cute that the baby is the "BOY" . LOL
    Flakes here but nothing sticking...yet.

  4. The snow is on it's way here's gingerbread season all around! So cute!

  5. The boy! That is aforable. So is your gingerbread boy. The buttons will be the perfect touch. Beautiful fabrics and love the colored zippers.
    Of course I have eaten chips! Here in Illinois we are suppose to get some snow Saturday night but I do not think it will be a lot. Have a nice weekend.

  6. I've recently had to start limiting my sodium, and was happy to see that chocolate chips are low sodium! Must try those apple chips too! Stay warm!

  7. Your Christmas blocks are soooo cute!! isn't white ric rac perfect for icing?
    I have been known to eat out of the bad in the car on the way home. I'm not proud of it, but it's the truth, lol.
    we had a dusting yesterday morning

  8. Your little ginger boy is so cute and I also am smitten by the rick rack. I love the mini choc. chips in Dannon low-carb vanilla (must be this brand) yogurt. Healthy wonderful treat! Not to sure if we had flurries or not--I was so busy sewing--HaHa!

  9. Do you have a pattern you are using for your Christmas blocks? They are so cute!

  10. Your gingerbread boy are so lovely!
    I love apple chips....

  11. Very nice Kelly! This looks to be a real fun festive quilt! Have a great day!

  12. I get into the bag of chocolate chips in the grocery store parking lot... I think the Ginger boy is perfect! Apple chips are delish. Easy to make your own. Make some with red apples, some with green apples and they will fit your Christmas quilt theme!


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
