Baby Memory Quilt

 She gave me this...

And I gave her this...

What sweet memories have been saved in the quilt!  I took 30 baby outfits and created this 32x42 quilt.  The mom wanted it bordered and backed with purple.  This quilt has been machine quilted around each block.  I love how it turned out!

Fabric Finds

Look at this great loot I found! All yard or 1/2 yard cuts. That cute little Eric Carle caterpillar is 44 inches long, there's a sunrise you cannot see folded under. He was an amazing find :)
I also found these precious girl prints... Purses, dots, and little girls. So sweet!

I am thinking of little baby quilts to sell out of these :)

I have some more awesome fabric I've picked up recently that I need to get a photo of and put on the shelf.  Check back for fabric updates!

My husband loves Star Wars and I love quilting, so imagine my surprise when I saw this on Pinterest!

Happy October

I love October!  It is my favorite month, state fair, fall weather, my birthday, fall break, etc, etc.  This little cutie is from the book Count On It by Art to Heart.  It is a mini quilt (12x12) hanging on a great little frame from ackfield.  Each letter and bat was machine appliqued on.  I just love the color combo on this one!

How much fun would a kid have with these capes?  LOTS!  I have 2 or 3 of each design:  Robots backed in blue, black and green, Zebra Hearts backed in black and pink polka dot, and Space Capers backed in green and blue!

Each have colored Velcro closures at the neck and are the perfect weight for flying around the house!

Craft Fair

I did my first craft show today.  It was a great experience and hope to do more!

Here's a look at my tent from the front.  I just love the appliqued sign I made.
I wish I would have brought a bigger table and had a neater tablecloth...

You can see my t-shirt quilt hanging in the background.
Up close of the table with the bib and burp cloth sets.  I also had an apron for sale along with my photo book.

Here's my Christmas Quilt and a view of the capes and onesies hanging up.

Little League Quilt

I think I am going to title this quilt the Little League Quilt.  I gathered these shirts to make a sample to take with me to craft fairs.  I have wanted to do one of these type of quilts for a long time.  I think it would be neat to have a quilt made up of your child's sports shirts.  What great memories!

Here is an up close with the corner turned up so you can get a little peek of the back...
