Baby Quilt

Linda, a friend and co-worker is a grandma. She had so been looking forward to the birth of her first grandchild. Her grandson was born on January 17 and shares a birthday with my grandson Naseem who just turned five years old. I made a quick quilt for Linda to take to little Cole.

Bags Bags Bags

I made some more bags this month. First up is my Giants tote. They did so well in the playoffs that I made myself a bag in celebration. I even found some football buttons for it.

Next up are some bags that I made from faux leather and suede. For the first two bags I used Pink Sands Beach Designs Bermuda Bag pattern. For the last was their Kona Carryall pattern.

Old Projects

Howdy! Happy New Year to all! These projects should have been posted last year. These are two projects that have been going on way too long.

The first is a quilt I started for my oldest son quite a few years ago. You can't find MLB fabric so I bought a bunch of lounge pants and cut them up. I used my Accuquilt cutter and 6 1/2" die to cut the blocks and made snowballs with baseball fabric. It should have been finished last August in time for his birthday but he got it for Christmas instead. It is nice and toasty, I used fleece on the back (you can find MLB in fleece) and batting too.

Next up is block of the month project from the now closed Past Times Quilt Shop. I had the quilt top together and put it aside. When my mom was visiting early in December she saw it (and a few others) on a pile in my sewing room. She commented "you need to finish these quilts." So I made a point to get this one done to give to her for Christmas. She was happy! BTW my pals the Jersey Girl Quilters all did this project. Go take a look at how they all turned out by clicking here.
