Pick-a-pocket tote

I just completed my first bag!  This is a really cute little tote that has 6 pockets (3 on each side) that is perfect for carrying all of your odds and ends.  Finished bag is 8″x10″x4″.  My next project is making a similar bag but larger.

Baby’s first birthday quilt

My cousin Holly recently requested a quilt for her niece, who will be celebrating her first birthday in just a few days.  I updated my labels (that I do myself) and was pretty pleased with the result.  I also took my first shot at applique…it still needs some work, but hopefully practice makes perfect!

Simple patch baby quilt

This is a baby shower gift I am working on right now.  The parents are waiting until the baby’s birthday to discover the gender, so they had chosen bedding from Crate and Barrel’s The Land of Nod.  It is bedding with dark grays and yellows, so the quilt colors reflect that.

With border (border coordinates with back)

Just before quilting…more pictures to follow!

John Deere Baby Quilt

I just finished this quilt yesterday.  It is a John Deere themed baby quilt for a friend who is due in a couple of months.

Personalized label and quilt care tips card

This is right after the first wash and dry of the quilt.
Sometimes it will come out a little bunchy, but if you
iron it once, it straightens out well.  Some people
prefer this look to the crisp appearance.

Ready for delivery!

Irish Chain quilt

This is a quilt I made for my sister-in-law while she was expecting.  It is the single Irish Chain design, full size quilt.  I had originally picked the colors for a baby quilt, prior to knowing their nursery would be nautical themed, so I altered the design and some of the fabrics for an adult.
