Leo’s Mane Sew Along

A Newfo......

But hopefully not a UFO, since I'm hoping to have this one done for our grandson Jack for Christmas. It has a long way to go, but it sews up quite quickly.
This is another Judy Martin pattern, from her book Scraps. It's a pattern called "Celebration". It will be twin bed sized when it is done. I have tons and tons of the 3 1/2 inch novelty print squares cut. Probably enough to do 2 of these quilts. I'm having a lot of fun playing with these fabrics. And this isn't all of them. I have some cut into 5 inch tumbler shapes, and some more cut into 6 inch squares. Lots and lots of fun to come. I'm linking up to Cat Patches Newfo Party for October.


  1. Oh I love the colors in this...and the checkerboards. I'm very fond of checkerboards. Thanks for linking up.

  2. How cute Cathy! Your grandson will enjoy this for many years to come!

  3. LOVE those fabrics, and the quilt pattern too! "Celebration" sounds like a good name for a quilt for a new grandson - I'm sure that there's going to be lots of celebrating going on this Christmas!
    Hope you're feeling back to normal again - will be thinking of you when you go for your appointment Thursday.

  4. Oooh! I love the colors in this one, too!!! :)

  5. Jack is going to love it. I love the black and white "roads" through the I Spy pieces. Sparkling and colorful - it's great.

  6. Lots of fun, bright colors. He'll love it.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
