I Got Another B-I-N-G-O !

"Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling." --Margaret Lee Runbeck


Little did I know that it would take such a little thing as a tiny little cold baby to get me back to my sewing room................
and here it is.........another BINGO quilt for some sweet baby in Papua, New Guinea........




This BINGO card started out as a rectangle so after surrounding it with a green button border I added a strip of the striped fabric to each of the long sides to square it up and added one more border of whimsical zoo animal print before surrounding the whole thing with the rail fence blocks



.....I used some of the red fabric I had used in the rail fence blocks for the backing.  This quilt has a little thicker batting inside but still isn't too heavy, I think. I quilted in the ditch on each border then diagonally across the rail fence blocks......






Now back to the sewing room to see what I can come up with for the American Indian Petroglyph flannel fabric......Ta-Ta for now.............

I sent away for the address to help out with those the other day too, and I have a bingo card hanging around, too! :) What a great idea. LOVE it!! I have some other fabric in mind for one, I just need to get up there and make it! Not so much sewing going on since we got home.
